Musician's Occupying Wall Street

It has been gridlock the last month between protestors and police as everyone is clashing over the #OCCUPYWALLSTREET movement and protests. Musicians from all genres are going down to raise awareness.

It started with a rumor that Radiohead would be playing while in NYC, but that was quickly squashed. Then Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel made a rare appearance and since then everyone from Jonah Matranga, Amanda Palmer, Tom Morello, Russell Simmons and Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Justin Sane of Anti-Flag have all gone down to lend support.

Take a look at correspondent Leigh Allen's photos of Justin Sane performing. Then watch video clips Mangum, Morello, Palmer and Kweli in action.
