The National’s Matt Berninger, Aaron Dessner, and Bryce Dessner will join Iggy Pop, New Order, and Patti Smith, among others at this year’s Tibet House US Benefit Concert in New York City.

Also performing are Joe Walsh, Robert Randolph, Nico Muhly, Philip Glass, and Tibetan singer-songwriter Techung. Chuck Close and actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard will act as Honorary Chairpersons for the evening.

The annual event, now in its 24th year, will take place on March 11th at Carnegie Hall.
