On November 15, Le Poisson Rouge will host "The People's Bailout: A Variety Show and Telethon to Benefit the 99%," a benefit show for Occupy-affiliated organization Strike Debt. The show features a huge (and very impressive) lineup of Jeff Mangum (of Neutral Milk Hotel) (who has played for Occupy Wall Street in the past), Lee Ranaldo (of Sonic Youth) (who has also played for Occupy Wall Street before), Guy Picciotto (of Fugazi), Tunde Adebimpe (of TV on the Radio), Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Max Silvestri, Frances Fox Piven, Hari Kondabolu, David Rees, corproate pranksters The Yes Men, John Cameron Mitchell, Climbing Poetree, The invisible Army of Defaulters, members of Healthcare for the 99%, Occupy Faith, and many more. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, November 2 at 10 AM.

Meanwhile, Lee Ranaldo also plays as one third of Text of Light at 285 Kent on November 13.

Frances Fox Piven! I heard she's great on the glockenspiel.

I'm betting that Janeane Garofalo's snatch made the Occupy gathering smell even worse than they usually do.

NO ONE CARES. The Occupy bullshit is dead. Go home.

And the comics they assembled for this show fuckin suck. Garofalo needs to be catapulted back to the 90s and Lizz Winstead is the most annoying whiny cunt currently doing stand-up.

You idiots that bash occupy are clearly the result of believing corporate propaganda. The occupy movement is the best thing going. Start thinking for yourselves and open your eyes.

Where is that crazy eyes leftie troll picking fights with anyone that disagrees with his regimented narrow doctrine? He's probably still scoring dope for tonight's binge. Oh well.

Do you store your weed where your brain should be?

Wait, there's a member of Fugazi on the bill, and the admission is more than $5? RIP OFF.

2:52: Guessing that most people have lives/careers and don't sit on this site 24 hrs a day furiously refreshing in hopes of responses to anonymous comments. Do you, though.

Occupiers have lives and careers? I suppose that there are professional protesters and agitators, but almost by definition we're talking about part time job monkeys like musicians and assorted unemployed dimwits.

how many hours a day do you honestly spend on this site?

Posted by Anonymous | October 24, 2012 3:27 PM

How long is Jeff mangum playing? Then I'll decide if sitting through this idiocy is worth 25$

If that question is directed at 3:19, above you, I don't spend half an hour here a week.
A couple times a day I scan for posts about bands I like, and I comment when I see fit to do so.

Has anyone actually visited the Strike Debt site? I couldnt believe it. They've abandoned the fight on Wall Street and now are directing all their efforts into why we shouldnt have to pay our student loans or credit card bills. This is what protest has become in this country? This is going to discredit the entire movement even worse...

I saw that site. It exudes disillusioned, entitled children.

[They] "now are directing all their efforts into why we shouldnt have to pay our student loans or credit card bills."

This was always the case for over 50% of participants in OWS. Less than the majority had causes that seemed genuine (i.e. renegged mortgages, etc.)

From Strike Debt:

"As individuals, families, and communities, most of us are drowning in debt to Wall Street for the basic things things we need to live, like housing, education, and health care. Even those of us who do not have personal debt are affected by predatory lending. Our essential public services are cut because our cities and towns are held hostage by the same big banks that have been bailed out by our government in recent years."


hahahah, morons financial literacy isn't just for the 1% or rich people. Maybe, just maybe, you should read and understand the terms of loans BEFORE you agree to them. This whole movement seems to be about trying to protect idiots from themselves. Navigating America is easy if you're not willfully stupid. Fuck all these people, and fuck these show business entertainers for enabling them.
