Raised money for Simon Community in Dublin

Imagine walking down the street on Christmas Eve and seeing this:

On December 24, 2009, Glen Hansard of the Swell Season was joined by fellow Irishmen Bono (U2), Damien Rice and Mundy for a busking session outside Captain America's on Dublin's famed Grafton Street.

The impromptu performance raised money for Simon Community, an organization which serves Ireland's homeless population.

The one hour set included Bob Dylan's "Knocking On Heaven's Door", Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" and Mic Christopher's "Heyday," among others.

Several fans have posted excerpts on YouTube.

Grafton is also the street where Glen Hansard's character performs in the Oscar-winning film 'Once', which co-stars his partner in the Swell Season, Marketa Irglova.

    I saw Neil from Young Astronauts Club busking in the same spot a few years ago. Grafton Street is brilliant!
