    Get your philanthropic fix with some great music as a chaser tonight.

    Brooklyn’s Noncerts presents its second edition tonight in a benefit for music education in Brooklyn public schools.

    Tickets are still on sale at a scant $20, which to us seems like a pretty reasonable fee to catch a star-studded lineup: Martha Wainwright, Elvis Perkins and Jesse Harris, who also happens to be in the house band. That full lineup includes Pico Alt, C.J. Camerieri, Christina Courtin, Dave Godowsky, Clarice Jensen, Ben Lester, Eivind Opsvik, and Doug Wieselman.

    The cool thing about Noncerts? 100 percent of proceeds go to its cause. The group is aiming to “put a piano in every public school in Brooklyn.” A lofty but well-intentioned goal, certainly, as anyone whose life has been bolstered by the benefits of music education can tell you (read: music saved my life).

    This is the second edition of the charity night, the first being this February.

    Cameo can be hard to find – it’s between Berry and Wythe, behind the Lovin' Cup café. Show starts at 8 p.m.
