On Thursday, Jack Antonoff held his annual benefit show for LGBTQ-focused charity The Ally Coalition, and it featured a handful of memorable all-star collaborations. Among those who took the stage at New York’s Town Hall: Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, pop phenom Carly Rae Jepsen, Blood Orange genius Dev Hynes, and country star Jason Isbell.

Koenig, Hynes, and Isbell all formed a makeshift band to perform “Married in a Gold Rush”, a track off Vampire Weekend’s year-end-list-worthy Father of the Bride. Koenig also did 2008 throwback hit “A-Punk with assistance from the night’s host, Antonoff.
