Xiu Xiu, Deerhoof, Why? Rock the Lobot for AIDS Orphans Friday -- Gloomy all-Cure/Smiths/Joy Division Set Planned
Bay Area rock dudes from Xiu Xiu, Deerhoof and Why? are throwing an ultra mega dance party tomorrow night to raise money for the Nyumbani AIDS orphanage in Kenya. Get your freak on to some Moz, Robert Smith, and Ian Curtis while thinking of the children. Here's what arch-nemesis Guardian had to say:
Like gloom with your get-down? Stewart will satisfy: he told me he plans to play only Joy Division, Smiths, and Cure songs during his 40-minute set. "People are either going to love this or hate this!" he says gleefully. "It's my idea of heaven on earth. Hopefully, it will be other people's as well."
