Jim James, Feist Eat Books

REVENGE OF THE BOOK EATERS


Jim James
On August 26, at New York's Beacon Theatre, 826NYC and The Bowery Presents present REVENGE OF THE BOOK EATERS, a one-night-only event that brings together some of our most celebrated comedians, writers, and indie-rock songwriters for a rare evening of intimate performances, including FEIST, A.C. NEWMAN (of New Pornographers), JIM JAMES (of My Morning Jacket), GRIZZLY BEAR, SARAH VOWELL (best-selling author and This American Life contributor), and DEMETRI MARTIN (Daily Show regular, comedy superstar). The night promises once and for all to try to settle the debate: words or music - which is better?

This event, which is named after a story by an 826NYC student, is a follow-up to last year's much-heralded event and six-city tour by the same name - a unique and awe-inspiring synthesis of the literary, comedy, and music communities in support of 826NYC's similarly innovative programming for kids.
