My Morning Jacket Headlines Sandy Benefit, Contributes Concert Proceeds

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.
