Patti Smith

The 25th annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert was announced last month, and the lineup's now been expanded. Patti Smith and Sturgill SImpson join a cast that already includes The Flaming Lips, Laurie Anderson, artistic director Philip Glass, Tenzin Choegyal, and Ashley MacIsaac. The concert takes place March 5 at Carnegie Hall. Ashley MacIsaac. Chuck Close, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, Uma Thurman and Arden Wohl are Honorary Chairpersons for the evening.

Tickets are still available, and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win, below.
