For the 20th anniversary celebration of Tibet House concerts, composer Philip Glass pulled out all the stops. The event was called “Philip Glass and Friends” and it took place at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall on February 26, 2010. As if seeing one of the most influential composers of the modern age wasn’t enough, his friends that came along to entertain us were Russian anti-folk hero Regina Spektor, the NY gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Patti Smith and soon to be inducted Hall of Famer Iggy Pop! Holy Cow! Patti Smith covered the O’Jays’ classic “Love Train,” before finishing with a show-stopping “Gloria.” When I heard the opening notes of that song, I had instant recall of why I decided to trek out in a blizzard to see this show! She brought the house down and further secured her place as a goddess in the world of G. Who can follow an act like that? Iggy Pop! Iggy played “The Passenger” and “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” Wow! What an evening.
