It’s heartening that in just over two decades, the Tibet House Benefit Concert—a most eclectic, off-the-wall show—has become such a New York staple. The series’s 24th edition was an especially celebratory affair, featuring CBGB icons Patti Smith and Iggy Pop alongside Tibetan Buddhist monks, composers Philip Glass and Nico Muhly, members of prog-pop band the National, indie-folk troubadour Sufjan Stevens, and Bernard Sumner of British postpunk progenitors New Order.

Notable highlights included Sumner performing Joy Division classics “Transmission” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart” with a band made up of Iggy Pop, Philip Glass, Jay Dee Daugherty (Patti Smith’s drummer) and a string section. Suffice to say, the audience at the usually staid Carnegie Hall lost all sense of decorum. Time Out photographer Virginia Rollison was there to capture the action.
