OneKid One World is a charity devoted to ensuring children in El Salvador and Kenya get the best education they can. In support of this effort, an all-star lineup of today's funniest comedians are hosting an evening of laughs and live music, appropriately titled "A Night of Music, Comedy, and Other Awesome Stuff". Special guests include Judah Friedlander ("30 Rock"), Wyatt Cenac ("The Daily Show"), and Janeane Garofalo ("The Larry Sanders Show"). On Tuesday, October 22nd at the Gramercy Theater, you are invited to an evening where your dollars are not just going to drinks and overhead: over 90 % of the proceeds donated will go towards purchasing school supplies and teachers' salaries. VIP tickets with a T-shirt and raffle tickets are $85; reserved seating directly behind are $65, and general admission is $50. Musical entertainment will be provided by Old 97's member Rhett Miller.
No need to seek dirty beats further than 23rd Street; on Saturday, June 15th Bassface is hosting guests Dieselboy and DJ Shiftee for an electric night's set of Drum and Bass at the Gramercy Theatre! The Gramercy Theatre has been around since 1937 in NYC's historic Gramercy neighborhood. This place was nothing but a movie theatre and an art house up unitl 1998 and was then renovated into a 499 seat house which then began hosting off-Broadway production, but only until 2004 when it was shut down. Two years later in '06, Live Nation bought and took over the space and turned it into today's concert hall, hitting off with Stellstar in 2007 as their first event. Everyone from Jay-Z to Counting Crows, The News, and even Macy Gray have rocked the house at Gramercy and it's only gotten better!
Last Friday, November 18th, non-profit organization Rock the Schools held a concert to benefit NY State public school music programs. There have recently been some major budget cuts and many schools are in jeopardy of having their music programs cut altogether. Performing at this concert were artists Dion Roy, Tyler Hilton, Bryan Greenberg, Ryan Cabrera, and special guest Val Emmich. The event was hosted by Lauren Berger, the Intern Queen and Z100's Trey Morgan. Now it's time to go behind the scenes with Dion Roy and find out why he got involved in this concert, what's next on his agenda, and some of his super secrets!
