What do celebrities like more than orphanages and Michael Bloomberg combined? Tibet! You betcha, the Dalai Lama’s Himalayan homeland has long been a treasured cause of the celeb set. This year, Tibet House will hold its 22nd annual concert, a much-celebrated, must-attend event. This year’s lineup includes an improbable (but entirely welcome) melange of artists, ranging from Philip Glass to Das Racist, with Lou Reed thrown in for good measure. What we wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall backstage! After listening to the activist-artists play, we’ll head to the postconcert dinner party where we’ll dine with the talent, bemoaning the Seventeen Point Agreement with fellow sympathizers. On our way out, we’ll snag a “Free Tibet” bumper sticker and promptly plaster it on the back of our Audi Q5.
Twenty-second Annual Tibet House Benefit Concert, Carnegie Hall, 881 Seventh Avenue, 7:30 p.m. Tickets, from $33, available by calling Carnegie Charge at 212-247-7800.
