Ally Coalition pics/videos: Ezra Koenig, Jason Isbell, Dev Hynes, Carly Rae Jepsen, Dixie Chicks, more
Jack & Rachel Antonoff‘s sixth annual Ally Coalition Talent Show went down at NYC’s Town Hall last night (12/12), and like every year, the show was full of surprises.
Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig showed up as a surprise guest to sing “Married In A Gold Rush” off the new Vampire Weekend album with Jason Isbell and Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, and VW classic “A-Punk” with Jack Antonoff. Carly Rae Jepsen also made a surprise appearance to debut a new song with Jack Antonoff, and also to play “Want You In My Room” off her 2019 album Dedicated and her Bleachers collab “Shadow.” Bleachers also played a Springsteen cover.
The show closed with Dixie Chicks, and it also featured comedy from Mike Birbiglia, Roy Wood Jr, and Jacqueline Novak. Pictures are in the gallery above. Videos and some tweets about the show from some of the performers below…
