Fiona Apple headlined a Standing Rock benefit show last night at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre. As Stereogum points out, her set was highlighted by the live debut of her anti-Donald Trump song, which first surfaced online earlier this month.
The track, a parody of Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song”, notably featured lyrics about the President-elect’s “nuts roasting on an open fire” and an incendiary “Fuck you!” send-off, the latter of which especially got both Apple and the LA crowd fired up.

Additionally, Apple’s set included a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Money Changes Everything”, which laments the negative impacts of greed and money, and Tidal single “Sleep to Dream”.
