I was down at Liberty Park this afternoon around lunch time when it also happened to be time for some celebrity musicians to play Occupy Wall Street. I’ve missed all the other performances down there, so this was the first time I’ve seen it in person. There’s no electricity allowed, so they basically just stand up on a cement bench and strum and sing as loud as they can. It’s hard to hear, but there were enough cameras and media there that I’m sure there’s a version online that’s better than having been there in person.
I had never heard of Dawes before yesterday when I happened to click a link to their AV Club cover of Charlie Brown’s “Christmas Time Is Here.”
After the jump, can you spot the rock star?
Yes, that tiny face in the middle.
