OK Go's Damian Kulash will also perform
Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Damian Kulash of Ok Go and The Indigo Girls have all been confirmed to for ‘Musicians Bringing Home Musicians II’ a show to benefit the rebuilding of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
The acts will take to the stage on May 27 at Tiptina’s Uptown in New Orleans, and in addition to their own slots, are expected to contribute to each other’s performances.
Proceeds fron the event will benefit Sweet Home New Orleans, a coalition of non-profit organizations that helps find affordable housing in New Orleans and provides rental assistance for Katrina displaced musicians, Mardi Gras performers and other traditional New Orleans artists.
“It’s a great place for musicians to focus on community, both because we owe so much to that city for a century of incredible music, and because the local musicians there need our help right now,” said Damian Kulash.
Last year’s ‘Musicians Bringing Musicians Home’ featured performances by Steve Earle and Mike Mills of R.E.M.
‘Musicians Bringing Home Musicians II’ will take place May 27.
