Yo La Tengo, The Lemonheads' Evan Dando and Jesse Malin are among the acts who will perform as part of a tribute concert to celebrate the life of Big Star's Alex Chilton.

Called Channeling Chilton: A Night of Alex Chilton's Music, the gig will take place at City Winery in New York on July 28, reports The Measure.

Other names due to take part include Jon Spencer, Alan Vega and Chilton's orginal band, The Box Tops, with a number of acts still to be confirmed.
