Yeah Yeah Yeahs Announce Hurricane Sandy Benefit at Union Pool
On the heels of last week's new-LP reports, Brooklyn's reigning rock trio have announced a benefit concert at Williamsburg's Union Pool on December 8, with all proceeds going to Waves for Water, a surfing-affiliated clean-water non-profit whose Hurricane Sandy Relief Initiative is working on rebuilding efforts in New York and New Jersey. The 74-capacity club will be an unusually intimate setting for a band who headlined Radio City during their last tour in 2009. $75-$100 tickets go on sale here tomorrow at noon; there is a two-ticket limit and no reselling. Opening is the Higgins Waterproof Blackmagic Band, a new project from TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe.
