They Walk the Line

The High Line restoration project gets a boost, with a little help from its rocker friends.

Last year, the meatpacking district got its first comedy club (the surprisingly decent Comix), and now it’s getting its very own large-scale concert venue. Twenty-five cents from every ticket will go toward Friends of the High Line, the nonprofit dedicated to revamping the old West Side rail trestle. David Bowie is already onboard, having committed to curating the venue’s High Line Festival in May, and while Lou Reed’s opening- night performance is sold out, next month will bring in Brooklyn breakout Talib Kweli, jam-band veterans the Disco Biscuits, and the notoriously messy British soul singer Amy Winehouse.
