Tonight at City Winery:
Join Music for Occupy on May 8th to inspire and celebrate through music the Occupy Wall Street movement and the 99% who've been adversely affected by the economic corruption that has permeated our Democracy, created a near insurmountable disparity in wealth, and hindered life, liberty, justice and the pursuit of an honest living for all.The lineup, listed in full below, includes Michael Moore accompanied by Tom Chapin, Dave Dreiwitz, David Amram, and Kevin Twigg (yes that Michael Moore). Expect them to do their cover of "Times They Are a Changin", which you can also listen to, below...
Music For Occupy is in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, and all proceeds above board attained through the production and distribution of "Occupy This Album: a compilation of music by, for and inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement and the 99%" will go directly towards the needs of sustaining this growing movement. A portion of the proceeds of ticket sales will also go to the Occupy Wall Street movement
