Good idea. Seems like a great way to get money to people who need it.

Giving the money to charity.....what a bunch of selfish assholes

Yes, helping the victims in Haiti is worthwhile and then maybe they'll raise some money for the poor and starving just outside the concert hall.

Arcade Fire has a song called Haiti. I guess it wasn't good enough for this campaign?

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.
