Amnesty International is doing its second benefit concert for human rights, 25 years after the first one. It'll happen in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center, and so far names like Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, Imagine Dragons and Cold War Kids are in. It's called the Bringing Human Rights Home concert. Find out more here.

"Twenty-five years after its landmark Human Rights Concert series -- which featured U2, Sting, Lou Reed and others -- Amnesty International is bringing back the power of music to inspire a new generation of human rights defenders," reads the announcement.

That show was a multi-gig affair, on five continents in fifteen countries over a six-week period. This looks to be just centeres around the Brooklyn show for now, and will work to create awareness around how "prisoners of conscience, human rights defenders and communities at risk need us to stand up with them to hold human rights abusers accountable and demand justice"
