This benefit for Strike Debt, a project dedicated to raising public awareness of predatory debt practices and available remedies, is billed as a comedy event, and sure enough, Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Max Silvestri and Hari Kondabolu get top billing. But the lineup also boasts a stellar complement of musicians, including Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi and Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio.
