Revenge of the Bookeaters (826NYC Benefit) adds Britt Daniels & Eugene Mirman to it's lineup!!

So I'm gonna be going to see the Revenge of the Bookeaters benefit show in New York in a couple of weeks and I couldn't be more excited to see that Britt Daniels (Spoon), as well as comedian Eugene Mirman, have been added to the already amazing lineup that includes musicians Feist, A.C. Newman (New Pornographers), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), & Grizzly Bear...writer/humorist Sarah Vowell & comedian Demetri Martin (Daily Show) who is hosting the event. Yay. I mean YAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!!! Tickets are still available here. All proceeds from the show go to student programming at 826NYC.
