Lou Reed, Philip Glass, John Zorn, Sonic Youth and others will play a benefit concert for Tuli Kupferberg, the Beat poet and original member of the Fugs, at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn on Jan. 22.


Tuli, who recently turned 86, has had two strokes over the last year, which have left him blind and the tickets for the concert, which is being produced by Hal Willner, will help pay his medical expenses.

Among the others performers are Ed Sanders, Mr. Kupferberg’s fellow Fug, Peter Stampfel of the Holy Modal Rounders (who also played on early Fugs albums), John Kruth and others who will be announced soon.

Tickets are $75 to $125 and are available at or

(718) 254.8779.
