Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker have announced a benefit show on Sept. 11 at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The band will donate their entire fee from this intimate performance to benefit burn treatment centers, plus research and treatment for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. The night before, on Sept. 10, blink-182 will perform at Sayreville, NJ’s Starland Ballroom to support Sandy Relief as well as cancer and diabetes research and treatment.

Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge said, "When we saw that we would have a day off in the NYC-area on September 11th, we knew we had to book a special show. It’s been a long time since we’ve played a small venue – so, it’ll definitely be something special for the fans. What makes it even better is that we can do it while raising money for charity."

Supporting blink-182 on this date is Red Bull Records’ band NeW bEAt FUNd. At this performance, NbF T-shirt sales will also benefit the charities. Also, anyone who purchases a T-shirt will receive a CD copy of the band’s “($) CoiNz” EP.

Tickets will go on sale at noon ET on Fri. Aug 16 at www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets are subject to applicable service charges. Visit http://www.musichallofwilliamsburg.com/ for additional information.

New Beat Fund birthed when a piggy bank with the words "New Beat Fund" encrypted on it was catapulted into the facade of a corporate building. No joke. Somewhere in that transaction it became apparent a jar full of "fuck you's" and "I owe you's" would no longer lend it's help to an artist. So we started our own fund; no debts to the bullshit, just a direct deposit from your's truly and the people who vibe what it is we're doing. And what exactly are we doing? We're letting our music run free, streaking down the beach, nuts hangin' in the Cali breeze, smokin' Cali trees. We shimmy shimmy to the sounds of the Timby, some Red Chili, Slim Shady, and one Foxy ass Lady. Reppin' real music flowin' from an honest place. Keepin' true to who we are, how we're feeling, what we're seeing around us and the way we react to it. Everything New Beat Fund is done 100% by New Beat Fund. Burnie Baker, Fat Snapz Lalib, Buttonwill McKill, and Silky Johnson. No need for specificity. So vibe some tunes, whether you're coolin' with your gurl or partying with your friends, this is for you. Have a good time, that's what we're doing. Thanx for donating. Peace.

DIIV is the nom-de-plume of Z. Cole Smith, musical provocateur and front-man of an atmospheric and autumnally-charged new Brooklyn four-piece.
Recently inked to the uber-reliable Captured Tracks imprint, DIIV created instant vibrations in the blog-world with their impressionistic debut Sometime; finding it’s way onto the esteemed pages of Pitchfork and Altered Zones a mere matter of weeks after the group’s formation.
Enlisting the aid of NYC indie-scene-luminary, Devin Ruben Perez, former Smith Westerns drummer Colby Hewitt, and Mr. Smith’s childhood friend Andrew Bailey, DIVE craft a sound that is at once familial and frost-bitten. Indebted to classic kraut, dreamy Creation-records psychedelia, and the primitive-crunch of late-80’s Seattle, the band walk a divisive yet perfectly fused patch of classic-underground influence.
One part THC and two parts MDMA; the first offering from DIIV chemically fuses the reminiscent with the half-remembered building a musical world out of old-air and new breeze. These are songs that remind us of love in all it’s earthly perfections and perversions.
A lot of DIIV’s magnetism was birthed in the process Mr. Smith went through to discover these initial compositions. After returning from a US tour with Beach Fossils, Cole made a bold creative choice, settling into the window-facing corner of a painter’s studio in Bushwick, sans running water, holing up to craft his music.
In this AC-less wooden room, throughout the thick of the summer, Cole surrounded himself with cassettes and LP’s, the likes of Lucinda Williams, Arthur Russell, Faust, Nirvana, and Jandek; writings of N. Scott Momaday, James Welsh, Hart Crane, Marianne Moore, and James Baldwin; and dreams of aliens, affection, spirits, and the distant natural world (as he imagined it from his window facing the Morgan L train).
The resulting music is as cavernous as it is enveloping, asking you to get lost in it’s tangles in an era that demands your attention be focused into 140 characters.
“Sometime” hit stores on October 11th with a second single to follow November 29, culminating in an early March EP release.
