Now that we're a little closer to July and everyone's calendars are a little easier to manage, we've decided to throw a doozie into your Montauk getaway plans. You'll have to stay in the city the weekend after the 4th of July because former FADER cover man Damon Albarn is bringing a whole bunch of incredible musicians together on July 12th for a "chop up" at the Lincoln Center. The night is officially a performance by the Honest Jon's Revue, a collective made up of artists from that label, with Albarn as the ringleader. It will include Afel Bocoum and Lobi Traore, who were both on Albarn's Mali Music, Kokanko Sata, Simone White, Candi Staton, Victoria Williams, the indestructible Tony Allen and FADER favorites Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. It's a one-night-only show, and that night will be thereafter known as The Night Of Bananas. Believe us. You can still get tickets here, and stay tuned as we hope to have some special coverage.
