Vampire Weekend and members of Dirty Projectors and the Walkmen have aligned with Occupy Sandy for a benefit show on November 17th at the Brooklyn church St. Ann and the Holy Trinity, Pitchfork reports. Real Estate, Cass McCombs and Devendra Banhart are also set to perform.

Sets will be "short and primarily acoustic," according to Pitchfork.  Tickets are available here for a minimum donation of $30 dollars each, and proceeds will help Occupy Wall Street's relief offshoot Occupy Sandy "build the infrastructure to sustain our recovery efforts across NYC," according to the event website.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
