Freedom to Love Now: Thomas Bartlett + Rufus Wainwright + fun. + The National + They Might Be Giants + Toshi Reagon and more

Critics' pick
The compositions of Doveman frontman Thomas Bartlett are spare, minor-key affairs, a sort of soul music for heady loners. Tonight he hosts a benefit for nationwide marriage in conjunction with BOOM for Equality; it's a star-studded soiree with folk scion Rufus Wainwright, hit-making pomp-popsters fun., pedigreed folkstress Toshi Reagon, indie-rock notables They Might Be Giants and the National, inflammatory singer and gender disrupter Justin Vivian Bond, and more.
