It’s not a revolution without music. Sunday evening, it was troubadours Sean Lennon (son of icon John Lennon) and Rufus Wainwright who brought their guitars to Zuccotti park.

Josh Fox of the film “Gasland” talks to the crowd about fracking and clean energy, and then leads on banjo while an impromptu band of Lennon, his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl, Wainwright, Dustin Hamman, and others.

In honor of Ben Bernanke and their Wall Street locale they go ironic, and have the anti-banksters of Occupy Wall Street join them in a rousing rendition of Madonna’s “Material Girl”.

And in keeping with the OWS theme (“The revolution will be YouTubed, tweeted, and iPhoned), we have two angles – a high-quality one, and a lower-quality one with a better angle on Rufus and Sean.
