Last night there was an Occupy Wall Street benefit show to raise money for Strike Debt, and it brought together Neutral Milk Hotel‘s Jeff Mangum and Fugazi‘s Guy Picciotto for a performance. The guys took on an acoustic cover of protest song “Sign the Dotted Line” by New Zealand band Tall Dwarfs.

Its new initiative, called Rolling Jubilee, is being spearheaded by Occupy’s Strike Debt team to protest a “predatory” lending system, according to its website. The group will hold a telethon and variety show called “The People’s Bailout” in New York on Nov. 15 to raise money for the cause, and the proceeds will be used to buy defaulted debts — such as unpaid student loans and medical bills — and erase them.
