Storied recluse Jeff Mangum performed an eight-song acoustic set for Occupy Wall Street protesters late last night in lower Manhattan. He wore the same shirt, sweater and hat he had on last week. Between crowd-sourced songs (people asked mostly for Aeroplane favorites) he chugged from a gallon water bottle and said, "I want to hear all your voices." The assembly, of what we're assuming were very excited, anti-capitalist college sophomores and their advocates, obliged. The voices in the chat room alongside the show's livestream, which eventually amassed 6000 viewers, were less delighted. Some commenters didn't know who Mangum was, others wondered why Bob Dylan or Radiohead hadn't bothered. Watch the entire camp meeting above.
