As 2019 nears its end, another installment of the Ally Coalition Talent Show is approaching and Jack Antonoff has announced the lineup of his 6th annual affair.
On Thursday (October 17), it was revealed that Dixie Chicks, Bleachers and Jason Isbell are set to take the stage on December 12 in New York City to provide musical entertainment for the LGBTQ affair. Antonoff’s name is all over this year’s lineup as his former Fun. bandmate Andrew Dost will also perform. Meanwhile, his sister and the organization's co-founder Rachel Antonoff will be the host of the night.
Comedians Mike Birbiglia, Aparna Nancherla, Chris Laker, Jacqueline Novak and Roy Wood Jr. were also announced as performers for the evening, which benefits at-risk queer and trans youth organizations. Among this year's receipts include New York City’s New Alternatives for LGBTQ Youth, Detroit’s Ruth Ellis Center and Washington D.C.'s Center for Black Equality.
"This is the most special night of the year to me. all proceeds to homeless lgbt shelters. no middle man - directly to shelters for specific needs,” Antonoff said in his Instagram announcement for the event. “Thanks to everyone who has got tickets and everyone coming to perform. we also have some very special guests ::::.....:::::: anyone who has been before knows how loose and wild this night is and really anything can happen. cannot wait. see you all on 12/12."
