Sufjan Stevens was added to the 2017 Tibet House US benefit, happening March 16 at NYC’s Carnegie Hall, which already had a pretty stacked lineup with Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, and New Order members Bernard Sumner, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman (among others). The show celebrates artistic director Philip Glass‘ 80th birthday, and he also performs. Tickets are still available. Updated lineup below.

In other Sufjan news, he’s scoring Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming indie film Call Me By Your Name, which is billed as a “gay love story” and is set to debut at Sundance this month.

Also, NYC’s Shrine gallery will display the late Prophet Royal Robertson‘s work at the 2017 Outsider Art Fair, which takes place from January 19-22, including his drawing that was used in the artwork for Sufjan’s 2010 album The Age of Adz. (Sufjan also called Robertson his “muse” for the album in general.) Here’s that drawing (via Pitchfork):
