Bjork and Dirty Projectors are putting their creative geniuses together for a one-time benefit show in New York City in early May. Yeah, you read that correctly. The two forces will be collaborating together to benefit Housing Works, an AIDS and homelessness charity based out of New York.
The show will take place on May 8 at the Housing Works Bookstore & Cafe (a capacity of only 300), and all of the proceeds from the one-time show will go towards Housing Works. Housing Works is a non-profit organization that has been around since 1990, and services the homeless living with HIV and AIDS. The show is being sponsored by those lovely folks over at Stereogum, who approached Bjork and Dirty Projectors and asked them for their help.
The outcome of the offer led to Bjork performing music by David Longstrath of Dirty Projectors, and will have Bjork playing with Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian, Haley Dekle, and Longstreth himself, using only voices and an acoustic guitar, according to Stereogum. Along with the momentous collaboration between Bjork and the Projectors, Kurt Weisman and Olof Arnalds will also be performing at the small, 300-seat cafe.
