Ray Davies, Sufjan Stevens and Band Of Horses stole the show at the 2008 Tibet House benefit concert, held last night (Feb. 13) at New York's Carnegie Hall.

Davies, showing no fatigue from having arrived in New York from London at 4:30 a.m. that day, brought down the house with sing-a-long renditions of the Kinks' "Lola" and "All Day and All of the Night." The latter featured contributions from all of the evening's performers.

Davies also played two newer songs from his solo catalog, "They Ain't Gonna Listen To Me" (about being shot in New Orleans) and "In a Moment," and added a brief a cappella rendition of the Kinks' "Days."

Flanked by a 5-piece horn section and a string quartet, Stevens played a new, unreleased song, "Barn Owl, Night Killer," as well as a radically rearranged version of "The Star Spangled Banner." "It's one of the greatest hits of the last 300 years," he told the crowd.

Band Of Horses filled the hall with Ben Bridwell's soaring vocals on "No One's Gonna Love You" and "Lamb on the Lam (In the City)." The group, which plays Brooklyn's Masonic Temple tonight, also covered the Keith Richards solo track "Act Together."

The Tibet House bill was rounded out by a quick set from Tom Verlaine (backed by Patti Smith Band bassist Tony Shanahan and drummer Jay Dee Daugherty), Brazilian singer/songwriter Marisa Monte, fiddley Ashley MacIsaac, harpist Phamie Gow and Tibetan composer Nawang Khechog, who is now recovered from serious injuries suffered in a car accident.

Philip Glass served as the artistic director for the event, which raises funds to preserve and restore Tibet's unique cultural and spiritual heritage.
