A gaggle of talented folks came together at Bowery Ballroom on Sunday night (9/13) to pay tribute to the music of Neil Young and raise money for the Sweet Relief charity. Backed by the Cabin Down Below band, the first of two nights of NeilFest featured Ryan Adams and Norah Jones singing “Old Man” (Ryan also performed “Cinnamon Girl” and Norah sang “Don’t Be Denied”), Kim Gordon and Bill Nace‘s Body/Head performing “On the Beach,” Charles Bradley belting out “Heart of Gold,” Valerie June singing “Mellow My Mind” and The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon doing “After the Gold Rush.” Fallon also came out with Jakob Dylan, Black Keys’ Patrick Carnery and Butch Walker for “Ohio.” Other performers included Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner with onetime Virgins singer Donald Cumming, Nicole Atkins (who was joined by rock photographer Danny Clinch), Danny Masterson (yes of That ’70s Show), Adam Green, Michelle Branch, and more. Pictures, a few videos and setlist from Night 1 of NeilFest are in this post.

Tonight (9/14) is Night Two of NeilFest with much the same lineup. Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon has been added to tonight’s bill and hopefully Sharon Van Etten, who was listed but didn’t play Sunday night, will be there too. Kills/Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart was at Sunday night’s show but didn’t perform — maybe she and Jack White (who are in town to be on Colbert’s Late Show) will swing by? (But maybe not, if Patrick Carney will be there again.) We shall see. More pics from NeilFest Night 1, below
