Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., held “Not So Silent Night,” a RADIO.COM event, in New York on December 5 at Barclays Center. The sold-out show, hosted by ALT 92.3 (WNYL-FM), New York’s new alternative, featured musical performances by Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend, Cage The Elephant, Jimmy Eat World, Of Monsters and Men, Judah & The Lion, and SHAED.
“The holiday season has officially begun in the Big Apple thanks to two incredible back-to-back RADIO.COM events in support of the American Cancer Society,” said Michael Martin, Senior Vice President of Programming and Music Initiatives, Entercom. “We’d like to thank these talented performers for rocking out with New Yorkers at Barclays Center.”
“Not So Silent Night” was one of two Entercom New York holiday shows, along with New York’s Country 94.7’s (WNSH-FM) “Stars and Strings” the evening prior, which benefitted the American Cancer Society (ACS). In addition to the concerts, each station is hosting a Facebook fundraiser to benefit ACS. American Cancer Society has provided over 480,000 rides to treatments and over 475,000 nights of lodging to cancer patients and their caregivers during treatment, including accommodation in the Hope Lodge in New York City, wigs for chemotherapy patients and the ACS helpline, providing 24/7 free information, support and access to resources in addition to extensive, and life-saving research.
Trio SHAED opened “Not So Silent Night” in New York with “You Got Me Like,” and were followed on stage by Judah & The Lion with “Suit and Jacket” and their platinum hit “Take It All Back.” Of Monsters and Men sang “Little Talks” and “Alligator,” and Jimmy Eat World electrified the audience with “The Middle” and “Pain.” Cage The Elephant lit up the stage with “Shake Me Down” and “Ready to Let Go,” and Vampire Weekend rocked the crowd with “Diane Young” and “Harmony Hall.” Mumford & Sons closed the show with their hits “I Will Wait,” “Believe” and “The Wolf.”
