Pop vs Jock 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Pop vs Jock

Arcade Fire singer Win Butler's annual charity basketball game, Pop vs Jock, will go down in conjunction with Pop Montreal once again this year. The game takes place on September 20 at the McGill University Sports Centre, and includes Win along with fellow Pop vs Jock alumni Will Butler (his brother, also of Arcade Fire), Nikolai Fraiture (The Strokes), and newcomer Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). Former NBA player Brent Barry and current player Matt Bonner round out the lineup as well. Tickets are on sale now, and proceeds will go to DJ Sports Club, a charity offering sports and education programs to Montreal youth.

Arcade Fire were just in NYC for a three night run at Barclays Center.

david bryne either making an artistic statement about conformity and athletic gear, or just acknowledging that he sucks. (there are few things less likely than david byrne acknowledging he sucks.)

Not surprised that their two NBA guys are white, but I am surprised that they weren't able to get Steve Novak.

Byrne thought he was going to see Annie Clarke in a sports bra.

^Her sports bra is a rubber band and a tissue.
