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.)

The Wallflowers debut new Mick Jones-assisted single 'Reboot the Mission'

Perhaps not wanting to be upstaged by his dad or by the rest of the ’90s survivors dropping new material in 2012, Jakob Dylan stepped up this morning to offer a new Wallflowers single today.

“Reboot the Mission” features former Clash member Mick Jones, and borrows the band’s rocksteady vibe, too.

In the song, Dylan even shouts out the Clash’s late frontman Joe Strummer by name while welcoming new Wallflowers drummer Jack Irons (previously of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and Strummer’s short-lived band the Latino Rockabilly War).

“Reboot” is the first single from the Wallflowers upcoming new album Glad All Over, which will be out in October. Rolling Stone has the exclusive stream this morning, but it will be available tomorrow as a free download at the band’s official site.
