Awhile ago I saw some things on Twitter that said that Sean Lennon was on the steps at Zuccotti Park jamming with Rufus Wainwright and others.  I found only one picture so I wondered if it was true.

Well something just showed up on YouTube so I thought I'd write a quick diary to share it with all of you.  More videos are likely to show up and I'll post them as updates if I see them.

Lennon is on the right and Wainwright is on his left.  
At the end, someone Josh Fox (Gasland) says "that one was dedicated to Ben Bernanke" :)

Another video, farther away:



Update:
Another video has been posted on YouTube.  It turns out that Wainwright and Lennon and other musicians were there with Josh Fox who made the film, Gasland, and Fox was there as an anti-fracking activist.

Embedding is disabled, but here is the description and the link to the video.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
