Regina Spektor @ Tibet House benefit on Feb. 26th (more by Chris La Putt)
Regina Spektor

Regina Spektor will follow up her set at Tibet House benefit at Carnegie Hall last Friday (2/26) with a benefit of her own at Irving Plaza on March 23rd to support Doctors without Borders' Relief Program in Haiti. Tickets should be going on sale some time today (3/2).

Regina Spektor is one of the artists (with Bon Iver, Bowie, Magnetic Fields) covered by Peter Gabriel on his new all-covers record, Scratch My Back, which is out today in the US.

[Gabriel] chose the material in a kind of social-networking experiment. "Scratch My Back" got its title because when Mr. Gabriel picked a song, he also asked the songwriter to record a Gabriel song in turn. The original plan was to release two albums in tandem. The songwriters agreed -- except for David Bowie, whose collaborator on "Heroes," Brian Eno, will participate -- but the deadlines came and went. "We may not get everybody, but I hope we will."

The Arcade Fire has been working on Mr. Gabriel's "Games Without Frontiers," while Regina Spektor is still choosing her Gabriel song. "Scratch My Back" includes the Arcade Fire's "My Body Is a Cage" and Ms. Spektor's "Après Moi." In a telephone interview Ms. Spektor said: "It's cool not to hear the song in my voice. The leash has been let go from my voice, and now it doesn't just belong to me." [NY Times]

Peter Gabriel will be performing at Radio City this May.

Regina will be at Bonnaroo. She performed her song "Machine" on Jimmy Fallon in early February. That video is below...

I wonder if this will be GA or seats. Anybody have a guess?

I think all Irving Plaza shows are GA. I've never seen seats there.

Still no update on the livenation site about this show....

Richard Thompson had seats at Irving about 15 years ago, but other than that, I have never seen seats there and I've been to Irving literally 100s of times.

10:05, I get that it's a benfit concert. I just wasn't expecting the price to be that high. Still, I bought myself a ticket.

anyone hear of any opener?

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2010 12:16 PM

12:16, there's no info right now, but I'm going to assume there won't be an opener. It's a benefit concert, and it's called "an intimate show", so it'll probably just be Regina (and her band)

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2010 12:39 PM

any clue what time she'll be taking stage?

Guggenheim billed it as a performance piece and it was just an installation. Resultingly, the crowd simply waited for the "show" to start, limiting anyone's ability to freely explore the space (the ground floor was packed with indian-style seaters, and the balconies were lined with people holding onto their spots like grim death.

Hey ya'll we lost another one.......but I'm glad to have grown up with gangstarr as representatives of this music that has an incredible history.....hip hop is a book that wrote itself and GURU was definetly one of its main characters.....we are all getting older.....and GURU is one of the MCs that added a soundtrack to our lives in the 80's and 90's.......the NAMES,PLACES and FACES come to mind when I hear a GANGSTARR track.........I thank GOD that he allowed GURU to shine in his short time...........REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE GURU
