Members of the Strokes, Arcade Fire + Bon Iver to Perform During Basketball Game
Arcade Fire singer and Mad Max cosplayer Win Butler is upping the ante with his annual 'Pop Vs. Jock' charity basketball game, adding a supergroup halftime show this year. The announcement came via Arcade Fire's Twitter:
'Pop Vs. Jock' pits a handful of pop musicians against college basketball players to raise money for DJ Sports Club. This organization works to provide kids with sports and education programs.
And, as you might imagine, the afterparty following the game looks pretty entertaining, as well. Music will be provided by Butler, playing the role of disc jockey under the name DJ Windows 98. He'll be joined by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem fame. Here's a trailer for the afterparty, because everything gets a trailer these days.
