At the Hammerstein Ballroom to commemorate the Third Anniversary of the Invasion of Iraq.

A LIMITED BLOCK OF ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE AT 10% DISCOUNT at or by calling (212) 307-7171. Use code "PEACENOW".

Tickets are priced at $28, $35 and $150 VIP (including Meet & Greet with Cindy Sheehan and Peaches, open vodka bar and reserved balcony seating).

Doors open at 7pm, show at 8pm.

Two of my all-time favorite artists, Peaches and Steve Earle. I really wish I could make it to the VIP lounge to drink vodka with Cindy and Peaches. I'm also very fond of Fischerspooner, although their second album was a disappointment compared to the amazing first release.

I will be giving a paper about Peaches (who I've met a couple times) at the annual meetings of the Canadian Anthropological Society (CASCA) in Montreal, on May 10. The title is "'Back It Up, Baby': Peaches Queers Straight Sex." I reviewed a 2001 Steve Earle concert in Fayetteville for PopMatters that you can read here. As for Bright Eyes, you can read about his blast against Bush on the Tonight Show here.
