Sweet revenge: Dave Eggers, Of Montreal, Eugene Mirman team up at Berklee

In case the text above is too tiny for your squinting, Friday morning after a late Thursday night, pre-coffee eyes, get the larger version here.  Even then, it'll most likely seem too good to be true.  Dave Eggers? Of Montreal?  Eugene Merman? At one event?  Yep, our friends at 826 Boston are rocking out (in the karmic-ly correct, humanitarian way) as usual - in case you aren't in the loop about 826's awesome mission, consult Nina's piece from last March here.  Here's the info on the event, from our inbox:

"826 Boston is pleased to announce its Revenge of the Book Eaters fundraiser, featuring an eclectic lineup of writers, actors, and comedians including Kevin Barnes and Bryan Poole from the band Of Montreal (performing an acoustic set), as well as Dave Eggers (co-founder of the 826 National program, Pulitzer Prize-nominee author of What is the What), Eugene Mirman (comedian and actor, Flight of the Conchords), Davy Rothbart (creator of Found magazine) and Rodney Rothman (Emmy nominee and author of Early Bird) and the band Via Audio.
