Rockers REM and singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright are set to perform at a charity anti-war concert in New York City next month (20MAR06).

The acts will join Fischerspooner, Public Enemy's Chuck D, Devendra Banhart and Peaches on the line-up for the BRING 'EM HOME NOW event, which is timed to coincide with the third anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq.

Fischerspooner's CASEY SPOONER says, "It is impossible not to react to the current state of affairs through personal action and artistic production. We have been at war for three years. One desperately feels the need for someone to speak some sort of truth, either poetic or factual."

Proceeds will aid IRAQ VETERANS AGAINST THE WAR and VETERANS FOR PEACE.
