Chris Knox Benefit Show - May 6th at Le Poisson Rouge

On Thursday, May 6th, 2010, Le Poisson Rouge, Wordless Music and WFMU will be hosting a benefit for New Zealand musician Chris Knox, who suffered a series of life-altering strokes last year. The show comes on the heels of Merge Records’ release of Stroke, a double album compilation of artists covering Knox songs with the proceeds going to benefit him and his family. All money raised for this event, save for circa $2,500 base costs to cover direct club expenses, is going straight to the Knox family.

Chris Knox’s presence and influence on New Zealand music can only properly be compared to the relationship between Caetano Veloso and Brazil, and Ali Farka TourĂ© in Mali. He started as one of the first and most highly regarded Kiwi punk rock musicians in the late seventies, and went on to be known for his work as a comic artist, television host, film reviewer and music producer for releases on the illustrious Flying Nun roster. His work as Tall Dwarfs (with Alec Bathgate) and as a solo artist has influenced musicians far beyond his country’s borders, as evidenced by the lineup for this show.

Artists, all of whom will be performing shorter than typical sets, at Le Poisson Rouge include Yo La Tengo, Portastatic, Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio), Claudia Gonson (The Magnetic Fields), comedian John Mulaney and Sharon Van Etten. Additionally, New Zealand will be represented by one of the only bands who can be considered a rival to Knox’s influence, The Clean, solo sets by Clean members Robert Scott and David Kilgour, as well as Dimmer, whose leader Shayne Carter is best known on these shores from his years of fronting the seminal Straitjacket Fits. In addition, we are pleased to announce the night will include a very short acoustic set by Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, his first public performance in over a decade. The event will be partially recorded to broadcast on WFMU at a later date, as well as on New Zealand community radio stations like Radio 1 in Dunedin.

Tickets will be made available via next Tuesday, March 30th. Kickstarter is a great new website where people can directly support projects they love. All tickets purchased will be for the person who bought the ticket – i.e. there will be no way to scalp. If a ticket buyer is purchasing the tickets for somebody else, they will be required to provide the name of that person upon purchasing to secure the spot. We will be holding a separate fundraiser on Kickstarter to cover transport costs for the artists; people who donate will receive the Stroke 2xCD comp. Keep watch on Kickstarter for information like ticket price (they won’t be cheap – it’s a benefit!) and other salient details. There will be no guest lists whatsoever.

In addition to the music, New Zealand goodies will be on hand thanks to contributions from various organizations. For instance, we’re going to have meat pies from Dub Pies in Park Slope!

Heaven's Rage is the story [U]authentic tiffany jewelry[/U] of a retired helicopter pilot named Richard Tate who is found [B]replica tiffany jewelry[/B] murdered in his apartment; the most likely suspects being four women from Tate's past -- three ex-wives and his college lover. Homicide Detective Ian Buchanan must interview all four women to determine who killed Tate, however the more he learns, the more he sympathizes for the [U]buyers of tiffany jewelry sets[/U] women and not the victim!

Upon finishing up with the initial crime scene portion, Heaven's Rage is then split up into [U]authentic tiffany jewelry monthly promotion[/U] four main sections detailing each horrendous relationship Richard Tate had [U][B]replica tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] with the women in his life. We learn that Tate (appropriately nicknamed Dick by the way) is a disturbed man [U][B]authentic tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] with severe issues stemming from his childhood and just like Detective Buchanan, we are appalled by [B]tiffany jewelry store[/B] Tate and of the way he treats each woman. I found myself feeling genuinely happy [B][URL=]tiffany pendants[/URL][/B] that someone murdered him for the novel's sake, and became emotional in sympathizing with each suspect!

The flow of the novel is superb because it's [U][B]fake tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] got the "I-can't-put-it-down!" quality, with perfect transitions and breaks in [U]tiffany company jewelry[/U] all the right spots. As a reader, the pleasure and value of Heaven's Rage is being able to identify with each of Tate's "victims", and we find [B]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/B] that we love to hate Richard "Dick" Tate along with trying to identify the murderer.

Being an avid murder mystery reader, I believe Heaven's Rage may [U][B]tiffany jewelry store[/U][/B] have been more impacting had there been more concrete clues scattered throughout the novel in regards to determining the murderer's identity. The largest draw and allure of crime and mystery novels is being able to apply [B][URL=]tiffany bracelets[/URL][/B] the author's clues to solving the murderer's identity before it is revealed to us. Although the murderer's identity is indeed surprising, Heaven's Rage does not provide readers with [U]discount tiffany jewelry[/U] enough clues to solve the mystery on their own.

I personally enjoyed Heaven's Rage because of my familiarity [U][B]tiffany jewelry boxes[/U][/B] with the military lifestyle (being a military brat myself) and having lived in the locations featured in the novel including Colorado Springs, San Diego, and Coronado. On the other hand, you won't need to be familiar with the above attributes to enjoy [B]tiffany company jewelry[/B] Heaven's Rage and better yet, it will appeal to all genres of readers! Heaven's Rage is evidence that Tiffany Craig Brown has amazing talent [B][URL=]tiffany jewelry[/URL][/B] hands-down, and as a reader you won't be disappointed! No matter what your taste, you'll gain something from Heaven's Rage whether it be satisfaction from revenge or even being able to relate to nasty divorce and custody battles, among many other real-life experiences this novel [B][URL=]tiffany[/URL][/B] brings to light.

i'd like to take a motor insurance business to small claims court? The insurance agency rejected my claim, (I would take the at fault driver to small claims nevertheless , I have no address to serve them or send a requirement letter). The other driver was at fault but their insurance company claims there can be a difference within our claims so they have to take the word of their insured vs. my word. I think they acted in awful belief and did not perform a proper investigation would this be a valid claim in small claims court? I wish to have some responsible drivers insurer (not my own) to small claims in the damages to my car.

Domki drewniane, domki letniskowe sprzedaz - Poznan - Wielkopolska.
Czasami czlowiek ma dosc miasta – jego zgielku, smrodu spalin, ludzi, ktorzy wiecznie sie gdzies spiesza i pragnie wyjechac poza jego granice na lono natury. cisza i swieze powietrze pozwola na zebranie mysli i odnowienie sil. [url=]domki drewniane[/url] to wszystko czego potrzeba. Oddech dla zapracowanego umyslu. Jednak nawet na taka spontaniczna wycieczke trzeba sie przygotowac szczegolnie, kiedy nie ma byc weekendowa. Warto, wiec pomyslec o namiocie, albo poszukac oferty [url=]domki drewniane sprzedaz wielkopolska[/url]. Dwie opcje, jak najbardziej zblizajace do natury. Kazdy wybierze cos dla siebie, bowiem jedni chca bardziej bratac sie z natura inni mniej. Dla tych drugich wygodniejszym rozwiazaniem beda [url=]domki letniskowe[/url], bowiem daja namiastke polowego domu. Taki wypad na pewno wyjdzie na dobre, poniewaz wiekszosc ludzi potrzebuje troche spokoju i wyciszenia. Gdzies w glebi duszy powracamy do pradawnych instynktow, kiedy jestesmy z daleka od cywilizacji. O niej przypominaja tylko stojace nieopodal zabudowania, ale zawsze mozna wyruszyc na totalne odludzie, gdzie nic nie zakloci wspolpracy z przyroda.
