From Woodstock to Zuccotti Park, on Tuesday afternoon OWS was a "scene," as 50% of legendary, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young showed up for a brief, four-song performance for the occupiers... and of course a swarm of media.
Thanks to the efforts of OWS's press team (which includes a badge-wearing representative on-site daily at Zuccotti Park), virtually every media outlet in the city had been alerted to news that David Crosby and Graham Nash would be in the park for a performance Tuesday afternoon. And the fourth estate did not disappoint.
