A One Day Festival To Improve The World A Little Bit

Look, there's a lot of bad stuff going on in the world. But there are lots of organizations that are doing great work and lots of amazing artists who want to support them. I'm hosting a day-long festival at The Wild Project in NYC on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to raise some money for worthy causes. Stop by for three performances and lots of surprises.
