yes, that's Matisyahu & Tokyo Police Club...
Tokyo Police Club and We Barbarians played an invite-only show at the Wired Store on 12/15, much like Ra Ra Riot did a week earlier. It was the Foundations Artist Management Holiday Party and was marked by a surprise appearance from Matisyahu who joined TPC for a cover of his own "Miracle (The Hanukkah Song)". Ayad and Michael from Passion Pit didn't play the party, but they did introduce TPC after jokingly introducing themselves at Foundations interns.
After the Wired Store show, Andrew St. Clair joined TPC at Nancy Whiskey in TriBeCa where they played We Barbarians in a gentlemanly game of shuffleboard.
Matisyahu played a string of Hannukah related shows, including four NYC shows recently, and has a show coming up at Mercury Lounge. TPC have a tour coming up with Two Door Cinema Club which will hit Terminal 5. Passion Pit are playing Wellmont Theater on 12/30 and 12/31.
