The music stars will align in Manhattan next month when The Ally Coalition's 4th Annual Talent Show invades the Big Apple. Many of music's biggest names are set to perform at the 2018 charity gathering, including Lorde, Kacey Musgraves and Spoon. The event will be held at New York's Town Hall on Jan. 24. View the complete lineup, which also features comedy performances, below.
Other artists set to rock the stage at the January event include members of The National, Shamir, Jacqueline Novak and Bleachers. The latter's frontman Jack Antonoff will again curate the Talent Show, with his sister Rachel hosting the event.
“The Talent Show is my favorite night of the year,” Antonoff said in a press release regarding the forthcoming event. “I am so happy to have my friends on stage to build awareness and raise money for LGBTQ youth.” The annual show will support New Alternatives' work with homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth. Tickets for the show are now on sale via AXS.com.
The Ally Coalition has quickly become a staple organization in the advancement of LGBTQ equality. The organization teams up with notable musicians, artists, comedians and public figures to raise awareness for the LGBTQ community through tours, events and the promotion of safe spaces for LGBTQ youth. It uses the phrase "I'm an Ally" across the medium to build an audience dedicated to combating inequality within the community.
Last year's event was held at Webster Hall in New York City and featured performances from Carly Rae Jepsen, Charli XCX and actress Lena Dunham. The Ally Coalition has also set up notable events like Audible Impact and An Above Average Talent Show, events that have taken place at The GRAMMY Museum and SXSW, respectively.
