Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith, Sky Ferreira To Play Elliott Smith Tribute Show
It feels like a swift kick to the stomach to say, but on 10/21 it will be 10 years since iconic singer/song-writer Elliott Smith passed away. On that day this year, Cat Power, Zachary Cole Smith with Sky Ferreira, and more will pay tribute to the singer at a concert at Brooklyn’s Glasslands. Other performers include Yoni Wolf (WHY?), the Low Anthem, Luke Temple, Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, and Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz). No doubt the covers will be nowhere near as off-base as this. Ticket sales will support the Elliott Smith Memorial Fund, which benefits two charities: Outside In and Free Arts for Abused Children. Tickets are on sale now here.
