Norah Jones

Stones Fest 2012, a tribute to the Rolling Stones similar to Petty Fest and Dylan Fest, is going down on February 22 at Webster Hall. Billed as "A Night To Get Drunk And Celebrate The Music Of The Rolling Stones," the fest will feature appearances by most of the same people who usually play these events, Norah Jones, Adam Green, Jesse Malin, Nicole Atkins, Jason Sudeikis (of SNL), Jessie Baylin, Tad Kubler (of The Hold Steady), The Sheepdogs, Jon Herrington (of Steely Dan), Jody Porter (of Fountains of Wayne, Sammy James Jr. (of the Mooney Suzuki), Jack Dishel (of Only Son), Todd Youth, Alec Higins (of Alberta Cross), Danny Clinch and the Tangiers Blues Band, Steve Schiltz (of Hurricane Bells/Longwave), Justin Long, Antony Ellis (of 5 O'Clock Heros), Jason Roberts, Petter Ericson Stakee, The Uptown Horns, and many more surprise guests. Tickets go on sale Thursday (1/26) at noon. $2 from each ticket will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

The show happens about three weeks before a different Stones tribute happening on March 13 at Carnegie Hall with The Mountain Goats, Glen Hansard, TV on the Radio, and others. Tickets for that show are still on sale.

Speaking of Norah Jones, she's set to release her Danger Mouse-produced LP, Little Broken Hearts, sometime this year and follow it with a tour. Norah Jones and Danger Mouse previously collaborated on 2011's Rome. Check out an acoustic performance of the song "Black" from that album below (via Rolling Stone).

Try and be hip and cool all you want, Norah Jones, but you still wrote "Don't Know Why". My mom loves that song.

"the fest will feature appearances by most of the same people who usually play these events" - kind of a dig at "these events" & the "people" who "usually play" them

These people on this bill shouldn't be allowed to play stones songs. Can we somehow get a legal bill to be written to prevent this from occurring legally?

I cannot wait to see Justin Long sing Start Me Up! Now I can die!

LMAO...that "Exile blows" comment is arguably one of the dumbest things I've seen anyone write on here in a long time, and THAT'S saying something. Wow.

This probably coming from someone who bought Collective Soul and Live CD's in the 90's. Your music taste probably sucks.
