RECOVERED: A Night of Sweet Relief
July 12th at Knitting Factory Brooklyn
Sweet Relief Musicians Fund has partnered up with the iconic Knitting Factory in Brooklyn to bring you the second installment of last year’s highly revered RECOVERED concert series.
Brainchild of Talent Buyer, Richard Sloven, RECOVERED features a collection of today’s buzz-bands paying homage to the great influencers by reimagining their classic records, start to finish.
Beach Slang perform “Pleased to Meet Me” by The Replacements
The Can’t Tells perform “Doolittle” by Pixies
Gambles perform “Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea” by PJ Harvey
There will be a silent auction held comprised of items and experiences donated by the local and international community of music lovers.
This benefit show marks the launch of an incredibly philanthropic initiative wherein Knitting Factory will donate a portion of each ticket sold to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund to benefit musicians, crews, venue workers and their families who are in need due to injury, illness and disability.
One of only a few stalwart promotions companies, Knitting Factory Presents has achieved an enormity of success by virtue of its talent, integrity and devotion to the art of music, while maintaining an unwaveringly independent spirit. Giving back to the musical community in this way is demonstrative of the organization’s values and should act as beacon of inspiration for other enterprises.
“Knitting Factory is honored to be a part of these fantastic shows and to be supporting the worthy efforts of Sweet Relief,” said Knitting Factory Presents president Mark Dinerstein, adding “We feel it is our duty to help those members in our community who are in need of support.”
We are beyond grateful to Mark Dinerstein and the Knitting Factory family for this unprecedented act of generosity that will enable Sweet Relief to substantially broaden the scope of those we serve.
