As usual, I was in the right place at the right time, and tonight’s place to be was Carnegie Hall in Manhattan for “Gavin Friday and Friends,” a benefit concert to raise money for AIDS research.

This star-studded sold-out event featured performances by U2 (performing T. Rex’s “Children of the Revolution”), Lady Gaga, Courtney Love, Rufus Wainwright, Scarlett Johansson, Antony, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Maria McKee, Shane MacGowan (of the Pogues) and Lydia Lunch, just to name a few.  There’ll be more pictures to come – so bookmark this site and tell a million of your friends –  but for now, feast your eyes on these pictures (including a rare solo-piano performance from Lady Gaga).

See them plus the set list after the jump.
