Street Pianos NYC 2010 was organized by Sing For Hope, a non-profit that develops arts programs for schools, hospitals, and other communities. Luckily, the project was a hit.To celebrate the return of the pianos—this year, there will be 88 of them!—Brooklyn-based duo Greene Girl will host a piano-themed benefit concert at Southpaw on Wednesday, January 12. This exciting event will showcase a wide range of talent, from indie pop (Anni Rossi) to experimental hip-hop (Emily Wells) to folk (Georgiana) to electro-pop (Greene Girl). All proceeds from the event will go directly toward Sing For Hope.Chicago-based café Argo Tea has generously donated a tea sampling station, which will serve delicious hot tea for the duration of the event. Artist Michael Arthur, who projects his drawings onto a wall as he completes them, will sketch various scenes from the evening, and auction off the finished pieces to benefit Sing For Hope. 18+ w/ ID admission: $10 door time: 730 DOORS / 8PM SHOWBUY TICKETS
