Revenge of the Book Eater Review
Last night "the Revenge of the Book Eaters" Benefit was a smashing success. The money raised by the event goes to help the 826 Writing Centers. The shows are suppose to ask the eternal question, words or music, which is better? The show featured brief reading by Jon Stewart, and Sarah Vowell. Musical performances came in the way of Sufjan Stevens, John Roderick and David Byrne. David Byrne's set was an "all country" featuring Jon Graboff on pedal steel. David's 6 song set included a duet with Sufjan which can be seen as Stereogum. Here is a short video of David Byrnes performance.
