Interpol's Paul Banks and the Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr. headline a starry fund-raiser for fellow NYC rock luminary Benjamin Curtis (School of Seven Bells, Secret Machines), currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments for lymphoma. The event also includes DJ sets from Stroke Fab Moretti (with Devendra Banhart), Alexa Chung and DJ MomJeans, and a silent auction featuring memorabilia and visits with everyone from the Black Keys to the New York Knicks and Aziz Ansari. In other words, dress for the paparazzi.
