New Yorkers: in a response to the insane Republican white supremacy movement, with its hateful hashtag #gasthesynagogue, Abraham, Inc. are throwing a party, and everyone is invited to join them at Symphony Space THIS SUN, SEPT 24th at 7pm. This concert benefits the NYCLU/American Civil Liberties Union, and features some absolutely brilliant, legendary musicians, including Marc Ribot (of those Tom Waits tracks) and Fred Wesley (of those James Brown and George Clinton tracks).
The New York press has largely ignored this concert, doing little to share the news. I hope that followers of Liquid Ink, especially that loyal constituency in NYC, can help spread the word.
Sunday, September 24th, Sympthony Space, New York City, 7:00 PM
