"Strike Debt" - outside LPR - 11/15/2012 (photo by Lee Ranaldo)
Strike Debt

Jeff Mangum and Guy Picciotto at LPR - 11/15/12 (via Kevin Bannon)
Jeff Mangum

Jeff Mangum was one of the many notable artists to play the Occupy Wall Street-related show at Le Poisson Rouge last night (11/15), along with Lee Ranaldo (who took one of the pictures above), Guy Picciotto, Tunde Adebimpe, Kyp Malone Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Max Silvestri, and others. The show was an Occupy Wall Street benefit to raise money for Strike Debt. If you weren't at the show, did you stream it live? You can check out a video of Jeff Mangum and Guy Picciotto (of Fugazi) playing Tall Dwarfs track, "Sign the Dotted Line," below. That's a picture of Jeff and Guy from the show above.

As mentioned, Jeff Mangum is going on a tour in 2013 which comes close to NYC on three separate occasions. Tickets for his show in Poughkeepsie go on sale today at 11 AM. Tickets for his Hartford, CT show are on sale now. The tour also hits Hamilton College Chapel in Clinton, NY on 2/14, but ticket info for that show has not been posted.

Video below...

Unintentionally hilarious ... dipshit musicians protesting the "rich" and our national debt while supporting a president that drives us into the abyss faster and more irreversibly than all of his predecessors combined.

I would be laughing were it not so freaking tragic.

Unintentionally hilarious ... Trust fund Libertarian posting on a music blog on which nobody gives a shit what he thinks and criticizes musicians/artists all day long when he himself has never created or done jack shit for his entire life.

Actually, there was plenty of Obama frustration going on at that show.

I don't get it. Holding an Occupy Wall Street event in the West Village. Where the cost of living is astronomical. And just a few blocks from NYU, where the annual tuition has to be supported by daddies and mommies who are most certainly in upper echelons of wealth.

Am I missing something?

Allz I wanna know is when are they going to march on George Soros' Upper East Side abode? He is certainly someone who is clearly in the 1%, having made his money by manipulation of markets as found by the French Supreme Court (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Soros#Insider_trading_conviction). We wouldn't want to leave such a criminal of the people off our list of protest targets now, would we?

Ever heard of the lesser of two evils man?

People may have voted Obama, but for a good portion, that's probably only because the idea of a Romney presidency was even more insane.

Please continue to have knee jerk reactions and misquote others, however. It makes you look smart.

^ Oh, sanctimony really suits you. it is after all the "knee jerk reaction" of idiots everywhere.

Oh, and by the way what was misquoted? I know, you liberals don't like being fact checked or called out, so you can save the calling me an asshole - I don't really care what you think of me. I do care about calling out fucking liars and their dirty filthy lies. Like yours here.

In other news, seeing these two play together was a really nice thing. In a completely apolitical context.

I was glad to see Jeff return to performing in the last year or so, and I've really missed seeing Guy perform as well.

They played three songs:

- Sign the Dotted Line (Chris Knox)
- Endless Ransom (by ??? - no idea about this one, but it was awesome)
- Oh Sister (old NMH song Jeff hadn't played in about 15 years)

They were great together.

I would really like to know if there is any kind of recording of Endless Ransom, whoever wrote it. It was great.

1:12, WAHHHHH, hey crybaby, I hated Bush just as much as any other reasonable American, but it is time to let it go. Obama has been in charge for four years. The reality is our debt has gone from Bush's 10 trillion to 16 trillion under Obama. Unemployment is 7.8%, the deficit barely decreased to 1.1 trillion. Obama is a fuck-up. Did any of you dumb cunts think for a second that you dont HAVE to vote for either of them? Sit out the election. You can reject both options.

White liberals are SO fucking embarrassing with how they defend Obama, because anything short of full-throated support will be viewed as "racism", right folks? Grow a spine, you pussies.
