After the massive Women’s March in Washington, the Planned Parenthood organisation hosted an afterparty at the city’s 9:30 Club.
It was no ordinary afterparty though, and as well as sets from comedians Janeane Garofalo, Tig Notaro and Cameron Esposito, Sleater-Kinney and The National also performed. Matt Berninger joined Sleater-Kinney for a touching version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Fortunate Son’, where backup vocals were provided by Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors and Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood. Talk about a supergroup!
Through ticket sales alone, more than $100,000 was raised for Planned Parenthood on the night.
Watch them perform ‘Fortunate Son’ below.
