Le Poisson Rouge's ode to Philip Glass/Chuck Close (more by Chris La Putt)
Philip Glass

As someone kindly pointed out, tickets are now on sale for the 2009 Tibet House Benefit concert happening at Carnegie Hall on February 3rd. The list of artists confirmed so far is in the title of this post.

Vampire Weekend are in the middle of their three-night NYC run at Terminal 5.

Patti Smith also has a three-night December run of shows coming up in NYC, AND, like Vampire Weekend (these two artists have a lot in common), is speaking at an upcoming NY Times event.

The Tibet show is a month before the REM show at Carnegie Hall that Patti Smith is also playing and which was organized by Michael Dorf who has Philip Glass playing multiple shows at his new City Winery.

Philip Glass is also playing a Roulette benefit Saturday December 6th at Roulette.

The Tibet House benefit show is an annual show put on by Philip Glass. Patti Smith has played it before. So has Antony, Sufjan Stevens, The Black Keys, Trey, Ray Davies, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Damien Rice, Band of Horses, and many, many more.

Video of Antony performing "You are My Sister" in 2006 (a fine moment), below...

Maybe Patti is bored, maybe shes a big fan of Phillip Glass, either way, its worth going to see her.

Why don't you bitch about the artists that don't show up for anything instead

Antony is G-D (well almost)
Also, The Johnsons
The Wainwrights (especially Rufus)(...not sure about Loudon III)
The McGarrigle's
Leonard Cohen
Philip Glass, of course IS G-d, but he probably would not appreciate my saying that.

Tibet? Why the hell do people invest so much engagement for Tibet? It's just a way to annoy the chinese, e.g. a stupid, reactionary critique of socialism. Why do bands like these support reactionary trends like this? Get a life and stand up for something important! For fuck sake!

China is occupying the Tibetan lands against the will of the ethnic and cultural Tibetans. China's regime perpetrates myriad human and civil rights abuses, including very tough restrictions on the freedoms of speech and press. Tibet is a very religious place, with a unique and irreplaceable culture (the preservation of which is the purpose of institutions like Tibet House). China is systematically gentrifying Tibet in order to change it to a pro-government department of the Chinese state. The ethnic Chinese have been known to be hostile to the ethnic Tibetans (not all of them, of course, but they are occupiers and there is inevitable ethnic conflict). The Dalai Lama is seen as the rightful leader of the Tibetan people, yet it is illegal to so much as display his image in Tibet.

It kind of is important. If you care 'bout other people, that is.
