Knitting Factory Partners With Sweet Relief For Benefit Show


NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — The Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is teaming up with the folks at the Knitting Factory on Brooklyn for a follow-up to last year's successful Recovered Concert Series.

Brainchild of KFE talent buyer, Richard Sloven, Recovered features a collection of contemporary acts performing their own renditions of key albums from influential artists.

Performers lined up for the July 12th event include Beach Slang, who will perform The Replacement's "Pleased To Meet Me"; The Can't Tells who will take on the Pixie's seminal "Doolittle"; and the Gambles performing PJ Harvey's "Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea."

Each night in the concert series will also feature a silent auction, where attendees can bid on items and experiences donated by the local and international music community.

A portion of the proceeds from the festivities will go to support Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which assists musicians, crews, venue workers and their families who are in need due to injury, illness and disability.

“Knitting Factory is honored to be a part of these fantastic shows and to be supporting the worthy efforts of Sweet Relief,” said Knitting Factory Presents president Mark Dinerstein, adding “We feel it is our duty to help those members in our community who are in need of support.”
