OK GO PLAYING CHARITY SHOW IN NEW ORLEANS

OK Go will perform on January 11th at Tipitina's in New Orleans to benefit Sweet Home New Orleans and New Orleans R&B singer Al "Carnival Time" Johnson, according to Billboard.com. The show comes on the heels of a January 10th event called Musicians Bringing Musicians Home III, which will also take place in New Orleans and will benefit non-profit organizations in the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged city. OK Go frontman Damian Kulash performed at last year's Musicians Bringing Musicians Home concert, which led to OK Go and local act Bonerama recording an EP titled You're Not Alone, due out on February 5th.

Both events are sponsored by the Future of Music Coalition and music and activism organization Air Traffic Control, with all proceeds from the concert and EP sales going toward New Orleans charities.

OK Go was scheduled to enter the studio in late 2007 to begin work on the follow-up to its second album, Oh No.

Oh No was released in September of 2005. The band's homemade videos created a massive online sensation, with the clip for "A Million Ways" becoming the most downloaded video in music history.
