41 Strings for Earth Day

May 15, 2011

In the apparent recent theme of 4-0 something years, Earth Day has been celebrated now for 41 years while the Earth has been around for something like 4 Billion and around 4 days ago our friends celebrated the 41st anniversary almost 4 weeks after the fact. But who’s really counting? CINDERS artist Hisham Bharoocha, along with his Soft Circle co-hort Ben Vida and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs lead a 41 stringed orchestra made up of a lot of our friends playing violins, guitars, and cellos. We’re still waiting on some sweet footage of the jams but this is a pretty cute video of some of the people at the show last Wednesday. Spread the love guys!
