Some things are inarguably more important than music. The Pathway to Paris concert will see some spectacular names gather for a benefit to raise money and simultaneously raise awareness for climate-change causes. While it seems ludicrous that people in 2018 still need to be made aware of this very real danger, unscrupulous politicians and pseudo-scientists have convinced the naive and desperate that global warming (and evolution, and the Earth being a globe) are liberal conspiracies. So any help getting the facts out there is vitally important. Here, the help comes courtesy of the great Patti Smith, Eric Burdon, Flea, Karen O and many more. There’s already been a successful New York event, and we’re sure L.A. can do the world proud, too.
