"I Vermont NY" a benefit for Vermont disaster relief
There is a surprisingly high ratio of Vermonters employed at Blue Man Group, particularly in the cast of Blue Men (three in NYC). When news of Tropical Storm Irene's devastating effect on our homestate, we wanted to rally together and see what we could do to help. We called our sympathetic and wildly talented friends and with the wonderful support of the Brooklyn Bowl put together a night of music, art and, deliciously, maple syrup.
The night will include live music by Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls, long-time friend and artistic collaborator of Zea Barker. Isaac Littlejohn Eddy, in addition to being a Blue Man, is also a published cartoonist for the New Yorker. He got Ed Koren of New Yorker andf Vermont fame on board to create a special poster for the event. The silent auction will include loads of original art, photo prints and a variety of Vermont crafts and services.
Music. Art. Dancing. And to send it all right over the top, there will be a farmers market style stand selling a variety of Vermont maple products right in the club.
All proceeds from the night go to Vermont Disaster Relief Fund and Vermont Farm Disaster Relief Fund.

Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls
“The idea was a simple one: songs for the piano and voice, recorded in one week in a bedroom, just to get them down on tape. But like all things surrounding the Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer-a one-woman machine who is a rock musician, artist, writer, yoga enthusiast, political activist and more-simplicity is not an easy thing to come by. Her small idea snowballed into something grand, exciting and nothing short of brilliant in the form of her debut solo album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer. Produced by Ben Folds, this is a departure from the music she creates as a critically acclaimed Dresden Doll and a major step towards showcasing her maturity as a songwriter, performer and most importantly as an artist.” – Amazon.com
