Battle of the Artist Bands (Saddest Song Wins)

The winds were literally howling outside on a frigid windy Sunday before Thanksgiving as The Brooklyn Rail and Clocktower Radio hosted a night of Rock and Roll! at Industry City, part of the Come Together: Surviving Sandy show. Hurricane-affected artists and their musical compatriots joined forces in a jam on November 24, 2013.

The lineup:
Ham, with Steve Dibenedetto, David Humphrey, Michele Segre and Jennifer Coates
Gospel of Barb, with Steve Dibenedetto, David Humphrey, and Jon Kessler
Jeannie Get Around, with Jennifer Coates, Stephen Ellis, David Humphrey and Terry Dignan
Slip n' Slide, with Stephen Ellis, Ron Baron and Scott Williams
Red, with David Ross, Patrick Jones, Scott Williams and Ron Baron.

We cannot confirm who won for saddest song.
