Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Billie Joe Armstrong Join Forces for Little Kids Rock Benefit

If you’ve ever wanted to see Alice CooperBillie Joe Armstrong and Darlene Love paying tribute to Joan Jett, you’re in luck.

On Oct. 23, those artists will join forces — along with  Glen Hansard, Tommy James, Jesse Malin, Brody Dalle, Jake Clemons and other special guests — for the sixth annual Little Kids Rock Benefit in New York. Last year’s event paid tribute to Darlene Love, and in 2012, Steven Van Zandt was honored (and Bruce Springsteen showed up to speak about his lifelong friend; they also performed together).

The special night of performances, produced by Steven Van Zandt, will donate its proceeds towards the organization Little Kids Rock, which inspires children in disadvantaged public schools by overhauling their music programs.
