Joe Stevens and Evan Greer will perform their blend of blues, rock and folk with—Occupy Sac: Diversity Thru Music at the Coffee Garden on Sunday, April 22. Post hip-hop group the Freedom Movement will also perform in an acoustic event featuring an eclectic program organized by Occupy Sacramento.
The concert will start promptly at 7:00 p.m. at 2904 Franklin Boulevard in Curtis Park with The General Assembly of strings, a jam session open to anyone with a stringed instrument. Three microphones and three stands will be ready to accommodate a larger, more inclusive assembly.
Donations of $5 are encouraged for attendees, but no one will be turned away for lack of dinero. Supplemental information on Occupy Sacramento along with a collection jar and drop box will be set up to receive any size of modest donations to either the local Occupy Sac movement or the performers, who have been extremely generous with their time. Special measures are being taken to help our friends living on the street attend the event as true equals.
This will be an opportunity for new occupiers and those interested in Occupy to come out and talk with us without the corporate media filter getting in the way. The relaxed atmosphere will be a place where people can obtain more information, learn from those they meet, and enjoy top-notch music by fascinating performers.
Please see the attachment on the e-mail message for background on our featured performers, as well as links to their work online, which can also be found on our Facebook event page– Occupy Sac: Diversity Through Music.
