From Neil Young Jams with Arcade Fire, Mumford Sons, Beck, Others for Bridge School Benefit | Music News | Rolling Stone By Benjy Eisen:
While the night's more poignant moments were almost exclusively connected to the Bridge School cause, Arcade Fire did introduce their political track, "Intervention," by dedicating it to "all those people camped out in front of our hotel, hoping that in some way this country can change, somehow." A peaceful warrior himself, Young would've almost certainly approved of the nod to the Occupy movement, despite the deviated message. Talking of deviations, Arcade Fire seemed nearly uncomfortable performing in an all-acoustic setup. "Sorry if we're playing too loud," frontman Win Butler said, apologetically, after a foot-stomping run through "Wake Up" provided one of the more energetic – and, hence, energizing – moments of the day. Nobody was complaining.
