Hurricane Sandy benefit concerts roundup: Chris Cornell, Phillip Phillips, Louis C.K., and more
As we reported earlier this week, NBC’s big musical benefit blowout brought in $23 million for Hurricane Sandy relief funds.
But people up and down the Eastern Seaboard are still rebuilding from the storm, and there are still more ways to help out: a whole slew of musicians and comedians have announced a new round of benefit concerts and events slated for the upcoming weeks and months. Some of the bigger names include Chris Cornell, Jerry Seinfeld, and the Wallflowers, but there are tons more indie-oriented fare too, from Neon Indian to Louis C.K.
Check out our running list of upcoming benefits below, and clink the links for tickets and information. Plus, feel free to share any events we may have left off in the comments section below. (And, of course, those unable to attend these events can always help by donating to the Red Cross’ special Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.)
