Wired presents a Creative Commons benefit in NYC, Sept 21st

Tuesday, September 21, 2004, Wired Magazine will throw a benefit for Creative Commons featuring a concert by David Byrne (with the Tosca Strings) and Gilberto Gil. It will take place at 8PM at The Town Hall in New York City. Proceeds from the concert will go to support the non-profit efforts of Creative Commons.

Tickets are available now from Ticketmaster or, after September 1st, at the Town Hall box office. If you're in NYC and want to help support the work of the Creative Commons, come on out and enjoy a great concert.

Be there or be square.


And you have booked a Brazilian singer! w00t!

He's the cultural minister of Brazil and a great supporter of Creative Commons.

...and a fantastic musician! I really wish I could find an excuse to be in NYC for that concert. Perhaps I can...

So, will a video/audio recording of the concert be available online under a CC license?

I see you arrive NYC 16:30 on 9/20 - would you like to have coffee- my office is right near your hotel.
