Global Festival NYC Features Neil Young, The Black Keys & Foo Fighters 

Not a bad way to wake up this morning. Even if “Free” means “Do Charity Work”

Neil YoungFoo FightersThe Black Keys and  Band of Horses among others are set to perform  New York City’s  Central Park  on the “great lawn” as part of what they are dubbing the Global Festival, on September 29th , benefit concert to help raise money to try and end world poverty.

Rolling Stone is reporting that tickets are at a discounted price of FREE and will given out in a  lottery to individuals who perform “charitable acts”. That’s right folks, there’s volunteer work involved.

This event is put on by the same people who bring us Coachella, and that’s Goldenvoice/AEG.  You can commit to the Global Poverty Project here, and that’s where this writer will assume you can find out these “charitable acts” that must be done in order to see the likes of Neil Young , The Black Keys and Adult Contemporary Rockers Foo Fighters  and others in Central Park on a cool Autumn evening in New York City.

Just be on the look out for police if you think it’s okay to smoke cigarettes outside. Mayor Bloomberg, along with 32oz soda, has deemed it “illegal” to smoke a cigarette in Central Park. Last time I checked, that park was OUTSIDE. But don’t get me started, just enjoy the show.

Jay Porks here.. I like to go to shows and pass along the experiences to you in words, photos and videos. In my spare time I do Social Media for the Meat Puppets in addition to hosting a weekly podcast. Remember folks it\'s not all about the technicalities of the situation more than it is about what the situation brings to the technicalities... The Jay Porks Experience, take a stroll my shoes for a little while...
