Ben Folds and Nick Hornby to Perform for AIDS Charity

September 23, 2010 (8:55 am) GMT
All proceeds from the tickets sale at New York's Housing Works Bookstore will go to HIV/AIDS victims.

The music world's new odd couple, and Nick Hornby, are to perform their first show together to raise funds for low-income AIDS victims. Singer/songwriter Folds and the British author recently teamed up to record a new album, "Lonely Avenue", together.

And now the pair is taking the collaboration to the stage for the first time - they'll perform at New York's Housing Works Bookstore Cafe next month for the fourth installment of SPIN magazine's Liner Notes series, which unites authors and musicians.

All proceeds from the show will benefit Housing Works, a charity organization that offers help to homeless and low-income victims of HIV/AIDS and their families. The duo's album will be released on September 28.
