David Cross, Nick Diamonds and more to host NY Cares

Waiting for the Arrested Development movie is getting near-unbearable at this point, but at least the Bluth family is keeping us entertained. Never one to lag behind, David Cross will be stepping out with Nick Diamonds (of Islands) to take over New York City's Knitting Factory for a "night of music, comedy and weirdness" in support of NY-based charity New York Cares.

Messrs. Cross and Diamond are the headlining acts and Marnie Stern, Leona Naess, Despot, and Conrad Keely of ...Trail of Dead fame will be putting in turns as well. The event flier promises miracle fruit taste testings, "real humans in cages," live art installations, knitting tutorials and assorted weirdness.

It all goes down next Monday, Dec. 8, at the Knitting Factory. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m., it's $20 for tickets, and, as an incentive to get there early, there will be free PBR for all grownups until 9:00 p.m. All proceeds benefit New York Cares, and if you've got an extra winter coat lying around (fur might be forbidden) donate it to their winter coat drive.
