“On May 15th, we’d like to invite you to tune into Youtube at 8:00 pm Eastern time for a very exciting experiment.  We’ll be performing live at the Brooklyn Academy of Music Opera House and thanks to Zynch from American Express, the concert will be webcast live worldwide.  All proceeds from the show will be donated to the Red Hot Organization and we’re pleased to continue supporting all of their good work fighting HIV/AIDS. The concert will be directed by DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, who will also be creating a documentary introduction to air before the concert.”
