Indie-Electro Dance phenoms MGMT have taken a very philanthropic approach to their next gig at the Guggenheim Museum here in Manhattan, playing the '2011 International Gala' After-Party hosted by the Young Collectors Council on November 10th. The after-party is a special fundraising event with proceeds benefiting the Guggenheim's exhibitions, acquisitions, and education programs.
Of course, if you're like many New Yorkers and can only be benevolent on a budget, then lucky for you [and me] there is a second show on November 11th for a mere $35 for museum members or $40 for the less art-inclined. The show on the 10th is offering tickets for $150 for members or $200 for non-members but includes dinner, drinks and [of course] 'zerts.
Tickets go on sale Friday @ 10am so remember to set the alarm. Check out the event page for info.
