This image makes me very happy indeed..


Above shows The National, Bon Iver and Feist performing at Radio City Music Hall, NYC 5/3/09. All for a good cause.

Several years since the last compilation benefiting the RedHot AIDS relief organization, the cd Dark Was The Night was compiled by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National. The CD includes the above mentioned, Arcade Fire, Conor Oberst, Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens and a new side project from the singer of Sigur Ros entitled Riceboy Sleeps.

It is an amazing compilation and I very much recommend that every one get their hands on it; for a good cause and for simple musical pleasure.
