NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heineken Light stopped traffic in New York City as its "Occasionally Perfect" Billboard had its moment of perfection.


The billboard, on the corner of Great Jones and Lafayette Street, was transformed into a massive stage with a surprise live performance by Brooklyn-based indie-rock superstars TV on the Radio.

Thousands of New Yorkers watched as the band ripped through a blistering set. The band treated the energetic crowd to a collection of songs, including "Young Liars," "Staring at the Sun," "Repetition," and "Wolf Like Me." To check out footage of performance, please visit
