Shepard Fairey addresses the crowd while Moby, Michael Stipe, Heather Graham, and Rosario Dawson watch his back...

As if SHEPARD FAIREY's inclusive "Manifest Hope DC" art show honoring still-President Elect BARACK OBAMA's epic inauguration tomorrow needed any more heat, his crew of celeb homies showed up in full force to show their support in frigid DC. Rounding out the nite were rockers MOBY and MICHAEL STIPE, alongside actors JOAQUIN PHOENIX (chugging two beers at a time), HEATHER GRAHAM, CASEY AFFLEK, and ROSARIO DAWSON who all attested to the Big O's greatness before digging on intimate performances by hipster elite SANTOGOLD and OG hip hop legends DE LA SOUL. Of course Supertouch buddy and "Manifest Hope"/Obama Campaign artist TRISTAN EATON was on hand to chronicle the debauchery, the least of which we can show you here. HAVE A LOOK:
