Watch Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, A-Trak and More Cover “In The Air Tonight”
This weekend up in Montreal, music luminaries gathered for the POP Montreal Festival, which included Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler's third annual POP vs. Jock charity basketball game. On the POP squad this year was Win, his brother Will Butler, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and The Strokes' Nikolai Fraiture, among a couple retired pros like Brian Scalabrine. They faced the Jock side comprising players from Canada's McGill and Concordia college teams.
A-Trak, Kid Koala, and Win's wife Régine Chassagne also provided musical entertainment during the game, and the whole POP gang united at halftime as the POP All Star Band for a cover of Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight." The Butlers, Vernon, and Chassagne traded vocals, with Kid Koala and A-Trak handling percussion.
