My Morning Jacket to Perform 5 Shows @ NYC's Terminal 5!

Eleven years into their career, Louisville’s My Morning Jacket have released five highly acclaimed, classic albums, the live concert album and DVD Okonokos,  and have been revered for their legendary live performances.  With such an expansive catalogue, it’s been impossible in recent years for the band to perform every last MMJ favorite for one venue… that is, until this October.  In an unprecedented move, New York City’s Terminal 5 will be presenting a historic five night run of shows where the band will perform one of their albums in its entirety on each night.

The stint will kick off on Monday, October 18th with a performance of the Jacket’s debut, 1999’s The Tennessee Fire, and will be followed chronologically by their other four full-lengths, ending with 2008’s Evil Urges on Saturday the 23rd.  After the given album is performed each night, the audience will be treated to a mix of favorites from the band’s catalog as well.  The series of shows are sure to put a magnifying glass over the chameleonic band’s history, highlighting their remarkable tendency to perpetually evolve.

All of the dates will individually go on sale June 18th but for fans who want the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of experiencing all five nights, there will be a special pre-sale.  Five-show ticket packages will go on sale June 14th.  As with their current upcoming headlining tour dates in August, the band will be donating $1 from each ticket to a local charity.  Please see below for more info on each charity and to purchase tickets, head over to www.terminal5nyc.com.

Mimi Fishman Foundation Auction-LIVE!

The first Mimi Fishman Foundation on-line charity auction of the new decade has just launched. The auction features over 30 limited edition posters from Phish’s 2009 tour, including the end of year Miami run and Festival 8. All the posters are signed by each of the members of Phish and in most cases the poster artist as well; Phish famed artist Jim Pollock included. Making the posters extremely rare is the fact the band signed only 5 posters from each show.

The beneficiaries of the auction proceeds include the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments, a wonderful organization that extends services to visually impaired children ages birth to three as well as their families - as well as the SPCA of Syracuse, an organization which was very close to Mimi’s heart and where she got her cat Valentine.

    Guerilla Union Partners w/ HipHopOffical for RTB Charity Auction

    gweb says: support charity auctions!- for the Grateful Web

    Guerilla Union, the promoters for the 2008 Rock The Bells International Festival Series, has partnered with Hip Hop Official to present the first-ever Rock the Bells online charity auction. All proceeds will benefit the American Diabetes Association (ADA). 

    From December 1 through December 15, 2008—just following Diabetes Awareness Month (November)—fans can go online to bid for various pieces of memorabilia from the 2008 tour.  Featured items include two custom limited-edition Rock the Bells skateboard decks signed by all 2008 RTB artists including Nas, Mos Def, members of De La Soul, The Pharcyde, ATCQ and more.  In addition, several 2008 RTB artists and labels are getting involved by donating special autographed pieces, such as sneakers from Supernatural, a prize pack from Duck Down Records, plus many more. 

    Inspiration for getting involved with this great cause is Phife Dawg, member of A Tribe Called Quest and a diabetic. During the 2008 Rock the Bells festival series, he displayed tremendous strength and resilience through his current battle with the disease. According to Phife Dawg, "Believe it or not, diabetes affects us all.  Until we find a cure it will continue to affect us. I was lucky to have a 2nd chance at life, others aren't so lucky, so please help us find a cure for this madness we call DIABETES!"  Chang Weisberg, Guerilla Union founder, states, "Phife was an absolute inspiration to myself and our staff.  His courage and strength to perform night in and night out for Rock The Bells was nothing less than extraordinary.  We are extremely excited to join his fight against this serious and deadly disease by giving back to the community through this auction.  With November being Diabetes Awareness Month, our goal is to bring national attention by sharing a piece of hip-hop history with our fans."

    To read more about the auction and learn about diabetes, people can visit the official website or visit www.hiphopofficial.com. Instant updates about new items up for bid will also be available by texting CHARITY to 44688.
