Neil Young Tribute Concert Announced for Carnegie Hall

Quick Tuesday quiz: what do these artists have in common?

-Patti Smith
-the Roots
-Bettye LaVette
-J Mascis
-Shawn Colvin
-Bebel Gilberto
-Aimee Mann
-Pete Yorn
-Joan Osborne

If your answer is, “They all downloaded ‘H.A.M.’ today,” well… that’s entirely possible (Shawn Colvin is, verily, “hard as a m-----f-----“),so partial credit to you. But we were looking for, “They’re all performing at the newly announced Neil Young tribute concert at Carnegie Hall.”

"The Music of Neil Young" is slated for February 10 at the venerable theater; over 20 artists are promised to perform, per the event website. All proceeds benefit youth arts programs, including Fixing Instruments for Kids in Schools, Church Street School for Music & Art, and the American Symphony Orchestra.

No word yet on whether Young himself will attend. Hopefully he’ll take his deserved bow in the ornate space: after all, everyone knows Carnegie Hall is somewhere.
