Dirty Projectors, Real Estate, Vampire Weekend, and More Occupied Sandy


By Andrew St. Clair


Some of indie's biggest stars performed in the name of hurricane relief at a benefit show on Saturday which included Dirty Projectors, Vampire Weekend, Real Estate, the Walkmen, Devendra Banhart, and Cass McCombs.

The instantly-sold-out show was held at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Brooklyn to benefit Occupy Sandy, the organized relief effort created to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy. The show came together within just a couple of days boasted quite an impressive music lineup.

Highlights included a stripped-down and vocal-heavy performance by Dave Longstreth, Amber Coffman, and Haley Dekle of Dirty Projectors, 3/5ths of the Walkmen, joined by a horn section of friends and family members, and Devendra Banhart's whimsical (yet way too short) set.
