This weekend marked the third annual MCA Day, which pays tribute to Beastie Boy Adam Yauch. The pioneering musician passed away on May 4, 2012 after a long battle with cancer. But a group of men dressed as Tibetan monks decided not to dwell in such sadness. Instead, they pulled off a pretty epic performance in New York City’s Union Square.

Why robes? As Angry Asian Man explains, Yauch was a practicing Buddhist at the time of his death and was active in the Tibetan Independence Movement.
