Jim James in for Musicians Bringing Musicians Home Benefit
My Morning Jackets Jim James will play Tipitinas on May 27 as part of the Musicians Bringing Musicians Home benefit. Proceeds from the event will support Sweet Home New Orleans, a coalition of non-profit organizations that helps find affordable housing in New Orleans and provides rental assistance for Katrina displaced musicians, Mardi Gras performers and other traditional New Orleans artists. Other artists scheduled to appear at the benefit include Bonerama, the Indigo Girls, the Ok Gos Damian Kulash, Matt Nathanson and Al ‘Carnival Time’ Johnson. My Morning Jackets next proper gig is an opening spot for Bob Dylan at Red Rocks on July 19.
