Friday night's lineup at Largo at the Coronet will bring together a journalist, a whistleblower and a singer/songwriter, and the results will be nothing less than riveting. In addition to the intellectual stimulation, a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Veterans Project, a local non-profit committed to helping military veterans reintegrate into society when they come home.

The event will feature Rolling Stone columnist/Griftopia author Matt Taibbi in conversation with Goldman Sachs whistleblower/It Takes a Pillage author Nomi Prins. Given that Taibbi once compared Goldman Sachs to "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity" and Prins worked as a managing director at Goldman Sachs, it's sure to be an animated and insightful conversation. Joining them will be LA-based singer/songwriter Michael Penn, whose live performances are a rare treat.

Earlier this week, LAist interviewed The Veterans Project founder/journalist Jeff Norman to learn more about the Largo event and other opportunities for supporting our veterans.
