Dawes and Hacienda will play Rolling Stone Fest 2011 in support of the Music Unites charity.

Dawes and Hacienda will play special charity performances for the Music Unites nonprofit at the Rolling Stone Fest on December 6th, 2011 in New York. From their mission statement:

Our goal is to connect people through the universality of music by providing communities with opportunities for a rich musical experience. This is achieved  through education programs and by offering established and emerging musicians performance opportunities in a variety of venues and locations, including schools, where they act as mentors to the students.

We also nourish the next generation of performers by providing audiences and performance opportunities, while at the same time enriching the listening experience of the public, allowing them to experience new forms and genres through exposure to an increasingly diverse world of music.

These free shows are RSVP-only, so email dawes@rollingstone.com and/or hacienda@rollingstone.com to land yourself a spot on the respective lists. Entry is still first-come first-serve, so get there early to make sure your RSVP gets you in.

Below, we’ve got the video for Dawes’ “Time Spent in Los Angeles,” which is pretty much about what you think it’s about.
