sander hicks |
This Saturday, there's a concert here and it means a lot to me.

His songs have made me weep, have filled me with rage, with validation, with inspiration.

David Rovics sings for us all: the activists, the oppressed, the truth seekers, the secrecy smashers, the murdered, the martyred, the resistance fated to suffer and triumph. He's a revolutionary, he's a historical figure of the future, right now he's just a punk folk troubador travelling the entire globe playing every protest every demo every teach in he can for the people, for the movement.

OK, you better get over here. Saturday, 8 PM. $10 if you have a job, less if no. with Randy Nerve and a promising new voice in live music: Laura Seiverling

1/2 price Michelob Amber Bock all night: $7 pitchers * $2.50 pints!

Look at the nice poster:

also: FRIDAY, it's the next VOX POP Free Speak Out

so let's freak out and get together.

this time's theme: The War, the Truth, and the Lies.

Dinner, drinks, and open mike for political rants...with climactic and spontaneous live music at the end.

A new tradition, at Vox Pop. A happening every 2 weeks:

in January: 1/12/07 & 1/26/07

6 PM

Here’s how it works: it's a free speech open mike for political expression for one hour and a half, while the audience listens, speaks out, eats, and drinks. Then, 3 songwriters spontaneously compose a new song, and perform it on the spot, about what they heard. The audience applause meter votes, the winner gets a free pitcher of Sixpoint Microbrew, or a free 1/2 pound of fair-trade coffee beans.

David Rovics returns to VOx POp on 1/13/07 backed up by local punk and folk solo artists. Media activist sander hicks will be behind the bar serving silly cheap beer. Revolution starts at 8 PM, Saturday, 1/13.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: NYC Grassroots Media Conference - Feb 24, 2007 at New School University

NYC Grassroots Media Coalition | This year, the NYC Grassroots Media Conference seeks to ask: What are the common threads inherent in our global struggles for social change and how does media contribute to our understanding of the root causes of injustice faced by world communities? From educating ourselves and our government leaders to spreading our messages and recruiting broader and more diverse constituencies into our campaigns, media is central to the struggle for social justice. Therefore, the fight for better access to and representation in the media is essential for advancing peace and justice both at home and abroad.
