Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Dean & Britta, Titus Andronicus & more for D17 Occupy Event today
"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."
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.
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?).
