Tibet House Benefit
As curated by minimalist maestro Philip Glass, the annual multiculti mixture that is the Tibet House Benefit usually includes at least one card wild enough to give pause for a Carnegie Hall event. This year, that honor goes to lo-fi pop subversive Ariel Pink,
who has already suggested assigning Glass a washboard for a possible collaboration. My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, on the other hand, arrives on the heels of a literally divine solo album, Regions of Light and the Sound of God, which should put him in cosmos-rocking attunement with benefit mainstay Patti Smith. The lineup also includes Tibetan singer-flutist Tenzin Choegyal, afro-folk minimalist tUnE-yArDs, beatbox brahman Rahzel, and This American Life creator (and Philip’s first cousin once removed) Ira Glass.
