You´re Not AloneOK Go spent the 2nd anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans recording with the trombone soul monsters Bonerama, and soon the world will hear the insanely swaggering result: A benefit EP called You´re Not Alone that comes out Fat Tuesday of Mardi Gras with this tracklist:
Rock 'N' Roll Suicide (the Bowie tune)
A Million Ways
Oh Lately It's So Quiet
It's a Disaster
I Shall Be Released (the Dylan Tune, with "Carnival Time" Johnson on vocals)
The band believes so strongly in this cause that they donated weeks of time and effort and resources that would otherwise have gone to making a new album or teaching Tim to talk to girls. Why bring this up? To convince you to buy the thing. It´s worth your money, all of which will go to helping out talented people in very real need. Do us, them and yourselves a favor and buy a copy.
SHOWS IN NOLA AND DCOK Go & Bonerama are playing two benefit shows to celebrate the release. Buy a ticket to either and you´ll get a free download of You're Not Alone as a gift from OK Go. The first show is this Friday. Get on it! Buy plane tickets! Help build a house while you´re there!
Jan 11 -- New Orleans, LA – Tipitina's
Feb 2 -- Washington, DC – 9:30 Club
Again, every cent raised goes straight to the cause. If you can't make a show, you can still prove your awesomeness by donating to Sweet Home New Orleans right now.
