My Morning Jacket will be headlining the other Sandy benefit. The band has announced that they will top the bill on January 2, at On The Beach: A Sandy Benefit Concert, to be held at the Paramount Asbury Theater Boardwalk.
Though the event is ever-so-slightly smaller in scope than the 12.12.12 extravaganza at Madison Square Garden, this show will feature a very intimate setting in which to see My Morning Jacket and a host of special guests, with all of the proceeds going to local Jersey Shore-area charities, including Coastal Habitat for Humanity, the Food Bank of Monmouth/Ocean Counties, Waves for Water, Food for Thought by the Sea and RebuildRecover.
In addition, the members of My Morning Jacket -- who come from Kentucky, not New Jersey, as you might be thinking -- have pledged a portion of the ticket sales from their three sold-out shows in Port Chester, NY and their New Year's Eve show in Boston to Sandy relief efforts.
There are still a few tickets remaining for the New Year's show, and tickets for the Paramount Theater go on sale this Saturday, December 14, at noon Eastern Time.
