The WFMU Fundraising Marathon packs a lifetime of memories into two paltry weeks, and for seven years now has been capped off with a party that's oft spoken of in hushed tones of reverence. Lead fearlessly by WFMU's Scott Williams, the Hoof & Mouth Sinfonia comprises the station's arsenal of secret weapon musician-types. Axe wielders, skin pounders, and bass-thumpers alike -- this annual celebration brings them out from behind the DJ mic to either deliver the hits musically or vocally. And deliver they do! Here's the video evidence from this years' performance. (Click each image to stream the video from this page, or download the videos in MP4 format). There are 30 more videos beyond the jump.
