"Join artists, musicians, and local community members for an all-day performance event in support of Occupy Wall Street's re-occupation of space in downtown Manhattan."

Occupy

Lou Reed & Patti Smith scheduled to play on Saturday, December 17th - the THREE MONTH ANNIVERSARY of Occupy Wall St., the birthday of Bradley Manning, and the 1 year anniversary of the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi - the act that sparked the Arab Spring.

WBAI will broadcast the event that starts at 12 noon EDT. See D17 Re-occupy for the official event. [Occupy Wall Street]

Head over to Sixth Avenue and Canal St. and tune in to WBAI. Here's what to wear.

Dean & Britta, Titus Andronicus and others will be performing in the WBAI studios - creating a soundtrack for the protesters to listen to on radios. Full performance schedule below. It's unclear who will actually be performing/speaking at the actual event (Lou Reed at both? Patti Smith at just the actual event?).

" a noon concert"

it's not a concert, it's a protest

Love BAI, but they don't know who's playing and the microphone on the band malfunctions when the band is introducing itself. Ugh. Anyone know who's playing right now?

Never mind, it was Luke Rathborne.

@506 yea bc we all love not being able to get to work since our public parks are being occupied by protestors who essentially won't stop protesting until world peace is achieved.

Leftists totally design the best posters.

It was pretty hilarious actually. right after Lou Reed finished chatting w WBAI panelists the protesters faked out the cops by marching north on 6th ave. Then suddenly a flash mob of anarchists appeared at the north side of Duarte Pk and set up ladders for people to climb over the fence --one of the first guys over was a Episcopal bishop attired in a purple tunic!-- who was later arrested w said anarchists along w Santa Claus + his sexy wife.

Man, these Occupy fuckers are positively addicted to feeling like they're significant.

11:18 PM - missing the irony in posting anonymously on websites about other people needing to feel they're significant (while judging them to not be) since 2009.

@5:28 But you have no prob w shoppers blocking Church St + lower Bdwy making pedestrian traffic drag to a crawl?

And I suppose you have no prob w the hordes of Africans and Chinese selling tons of counterfeit shit on Canal St which is virtually impassable on any given day?

And I guess you have no prob w Bloomberg spending millions in overtime on OWS but doing almost nothing to stop the sale of counterfeit goods which has been going on for years?

Ha! 8:42: seeing irony in insignificant and anonymous blog comments making fun of insignificant protest movements since late 2011.
