Tickets are still available for tonight's Paul Simon tribute show at Carnegie Hall with Allen Toussaint, Angelique Kidjo, Ben Sollee, Bettye LaVette, Bob Mould, Brett Dennen, Dan Wilson, Isobel Campbell & Andy Cabic, Joe Henry, Josh Ritter, Joy Williams, Judy Collins, L.P., John Doe, Madeleine Peyroux & Jon Herington, Sam Moore, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Bob Forrest & Gibby Haynes (who mentioned the show on the Daily Show), Richard Marx, Antibalas, Mike Gordon, and more.

Last night (3/30), as usual on the night before a Michael Dorf event at Carnegie Hall, there was a rehearsal at Dorf's club City Winery with many of the performers doing the same Paul Simon songs. We have pictures from that one along with the setlist of songs they played (TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe did 'Think Too Much'). Check out the setlist and more pics below...

The concept is tired by now, the line ups becoming meh, tickets ain't selling that well. Time to move on, Dorf.

man that LP dude looks like Donovan

@3:40 - he probably does that so he doesn't scratch up the back of his guitar. Either that or it's some sort of secret code for something.

@3:59 - Not that Paul Simon. This Paul Simon (RIP): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Simon_(politician)

wearing your belt like that means you will fist but won't be fisted

Not this Paul Simon but that Paul Simon, yeah, he's dead. Dead. Dead just like creative music programming that used to be on KCMU but got the big FUCK YOU when KEXP took over and JR in the morning started playing Pixies on rotation and the same old boring shit. Him and CW. Terribly sad stuff, really.

Being a massive Paul Simon fan (I still have all of his 70s 80s output on vinyl, including and especially my treasured first print Hearts and Bones) I would normally go to something like this. But seeing that the show still has tickets available the night of the show is a put off. Then I scroll down further and see the lineup is made up of indie rock also-rans (Mould included) is quite disheartening and depressing.

Oh well, at least Waxahatchee and Questlove (the two most annoying gotta-be-at every gig on both sides of the river) aren't on the bill.

I mean what the fuck is this?

Bob Mould has gone from Husker Du to Husky Dude.

Yeah, these tributes are at Carnegie Hall and they can never pull anyone at even half the level of success of the person they are paying tribute to? That just gives the whole thing that off-putting sense that it's more self-serving than homage.

It was a terrible show. a few standouts but generally difficult to sit through. the band never knew when to ease up on a vocalist and were intrusive - was just too much percussion - and bravado, on their part.

Disappointed.

Did one of you stupid hipsters above call Bob Mould an indie also ran? How stupid can you be?

^ Yeah, and guitarists wear their belts that way so they don't scratch their instruments. Or get fisted.
