Third Eye Blind, Dawes With Jackson Browne Perform For Occupy Wall Street

Third Eye Blind and Jackson Browne, who are both currently on tour, announced they were performing for Occupy Wall Street on Wednesday night. Organizers said they were not seeking publicity for the tour, but rather have been genuinely inspired by the movement.

The tents and tarps may be gone, but the Occupy Wall Street series of concerts is continuing.

Third Eye Blind and Jackson Browne, who are both currently on tour, announced they were performing for Occupy Wall Street on Wednesday night. Organizers said they were not seeking publicity for the tour, but rather have been genuinely inspired by the movement.

They have also contributed to “Occupy This Album,” a benefit compilation album in aid of the cause.

Other musicians who have performed at the plaza include David Crosby and Graham Nash, Tom Morello, Talib Kweli, Michael Franti, Pete Seegar and Arlo Guthrie.
