L.A. Benefit without Jake
A Benefit reading/concert was programmed on 26th August Sat. at Royce Hall, L.A.
According to the schedule by bookeaters Jake should have appeared there to support this charity event, together Jenny Lewis (child actress and songwriter, whom he dated in 2001), Aimee Mann, Dave Eggers, Mark Kozelek, Sarah Vowell, The Mountain Goats, John Roderick, Fiona Apple, etc. for a 6 concert series to raise money for children's literacy programs in 826 writing centers. The first of them was hosted at Beacon Theater N. Y. on 23th. Anyway, I suppose Jake must have his motives to skip this show hosted by Andy Richter. Aside my beloved Jenny, who played "Happy", "Rise Up with Fists!" and "Rabbit Fur Coat", John Krasinski ("The Office" Jim Halpert and "Jarhead" Corporal Harrigan) replaced Jake's act.
Some pictures of Jenny Lewis with John Krasinski and others participants. I'm a big fan of her group Rilo Kiley, you all know she is a classical flame of mine.
