Performance will benefit Planned Parenthood NYC

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will donate proceeds from their imminent Bowery Ballroom show to family planning clinic Planned Parenthood in New York City.

The performance which will take place January 22, will see the band top a list of four acts, the other three billed as surprise guests.

Meanwhile CYHSY appear in ‘The Great Buck Howard’, a movie scheduled to debut this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. In addition to featuring in the movie, they also provide a number of songs to the movie.

A month after their New York benefit, the band head down under for a short tour.
