Set to take place on April 1st (no, this isn’t a joke) at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, “The Music of David Lynch” promises “performances and interpretations” of Lynch’s catalog by acts like My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O, and The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Steve Drozd. Other guests include Duran Duran, Sky Ferreira, Moby, Zola Jesus, Angelo Badalamenti, Chrysta Bell, and Tennis. Update: Chicago rockers Twin Peaks are also playing, as they should.
All proceeds for the concert will benefit the David Lynch Foundation, which has worked to bring “transcendental meditation to at-risk populations suffering from PTSD.” Tickets can be purchased here.
The nonprofit has presented similar fundraisers in the past, such as 2009’s “Change Begins Within” featuring Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and a special Nashville concert headlined by Jack White and Brendan Benson. It has also since launched its own charity-based label called Transcendental Music.
