Next Thursday, on the sacred stage of Carnegie Hall
, over 20 artists will gather to pay homage to the man from Minnesota who became the Prince of pop. For a change, Prince will sit back and take it in as the likes of Elvis Costello, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Blind Boys of Alabama and more cover his 35-plus year career. The event is part of Michael Dorf’s Tribute Series
, where money raised benefits music programs for underprivileged students and not-for-profit schools in the New York City area. Tickets are still available here
. Sounds like the kind of night to pull out your fuchsia suit and snowy-white cravat.
