An Elliott Smith Tribute Show at Glasslands in Brooklyn, New York

Presented by THE BOMBER JACKET and Saltlands Studio

Featuring Cat Power solo, Zachary Cole Smith (DIIV) with Sky Ferreira, Yoni Wolf (WHY?), The Low Anthem, Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic), Marissa Nadler, Aaron Pfenning, Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), Adam Schatz (Landlady / Man Man / Father Figures), The Perennials, and Tereu Tereu.

Ticket sales for the show are here.

This show is supported by:

-Lake Street bar
-Brooklyn Brewery
-Main Drag Music
-Insound

Flyer designed by local artist Allison Specketer

Elliott Smith died ten years ago. The show is a tribute to his life and prolific career in music. The evening will support the Elliott Smith Memorial Fund (www.sweetadeline.net/esmf.html), which benefits two charities: Outside In, a Portland-based nonprofit that helps homeless Portland Youth, and Free Arts for Abused Children, also a nonprofit that offers art programs for children who've experienced abuse, poverty, and homelessness. Some of the artists during the night will play Smith's music.

We decided we wanted to start this fundraising campaign outside of the concert's ticket sales because we want to give back and share his music as much as possible. Not everyone lives in NYC and will be able to attend the show, so this is another way to get involved.

IndieGoGo only allows direct fundraising to one charity, so we have chosen Outside In, because according to Elliott's family, most donated money has gone to Free Arts thus far.

Additional rewards may be added soon!

THANK YOU so much for your time and support!
