Win Butler never met a Canadian celebrity basketball game he didn’t want to take part in, and next month, he’ll share the court with some fellow indie rock heavy hitters at this year’s Pop Vs. Jock charity game. The game is an annual part of the Pop Montreal festival, and both Win and Will Butler will play for the Pop team, as they have in years previous. As Exclaim! reports, Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture, another veteran of the game, will also play, as will Bon Iver’s eternally busy Justin Vernon. Spurs role player and noted indie rock superfan Matt Bonner will coach the Pop team. The game goes down 9/20 at McGill University Sports Centre.
