My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James is among the stars who will perform at the 2013 installment of the Tibet House Benefit Concert.  The 23rd annual show will take place on February 21 at New York City's Carnegie Hall, where the event traditionally is held.

Other confirmed artists on the bill include punk pioneer Patti Smith , tUnE-yArDs , ex- Roots member Rahzel and avant-garde composer Philip Glass , who also serves as the event's musical director.  Additional performers will be announced soon.

Tickets for the concert are available from the Carnegie Hall box office now and range in price from $35 to $105.  The event raises money for Tibet House US , a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and presentation of Tibetan culture.  Pollstar reports that this year's show also will benefit the Hurricane Sandy Relief Foundation and the Tibetan Community of New York & New Jersey.
