Thursday May 2, 7:30PM @ 2640 : in concert: ZOMES release show, with Rod Hamilton
We're thrilled to host ZOMES on the homecoming stop of their tour, celebrating the release of Time Was (Thrill Jockey 2013)! Time Was, the first recordings of Zomes as a duo, is an expansion of the Zomes aesthetic- an open and natural collaboration between Asa Osborne of Baltimore and Swedish vocalist Hanna. The result is a stunningly beautiful, intricate interplay of Asa's electronic textures with Hanna's emotive improvisations. These are the first Zomes recordings laid to tape in a studio and the songs are as immersive on record as they are live. Tonight's show will begin at 8 pm with Baltimore's resident hypnotic mallet percussionist Rod Hamilton. Doors at 7:30, $5 - $10 sliding scale, all ages welcome!
Tuesday May 14, 7PM @ Red Emma's : Support NYC Grand Jury Resistor Jerry Koch
Jerry Koch, a NYC anarchist and legal activist, has been subpoenaed to a grand jury. The state is compelling him to testify, and his refusal to comply will very likely land him in prison for up to 18 months without being charged or convicted of any crime. By resisting this witch hunt investigation of anarchists, Jerry is standing up for all of us. Let’s stand up for him.
The Support Jerry Committee will present information about grand juries, Jerry’s case, and how to support him. We will also be screening “The Wind that Shakes the Barley,” one of Jerry’s favorite films.
Thursday May 16, 7PM @ 2640 : A Night with Daniel Ellsberg to Support Imprisoned Wikileaks Whistle-Blower Bradley Manning!
What do the official US count of civilian and combatant deaths in Iraq, U.S. backing of corporate opposition to minimum wage increases in Haiti, child abuse and trafficking by American DynCorp contractors in Afghanistan, Shell Oil's inserting of its own "shadow government" into all main ministries of the Nigerian government, and the FBI's program of training of Egyptian torturers at Quantico, Virginia all have in common?
WE KNOW ABOUT THEM BECAUSE OF BRADLEY MANNING. He is now facing life in prison for exposing these crimes, in what could be the defining political trial of our generation. And we want you to be present as the court martial begins to help demand his freedom at Fort Meade, MD on June 1st.
Come out Thursday, May 16th to learn more about the case of Bradley Manning as we build towards a mass demonstration for his freedom, June 1st at Fort Meade, MD. Hear about Bradley's contributions to the world through exposing US war crimes and corruption and participate in a special Skype talk and Q&A with "Pentagon Papers" Vietnam whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg. More guests TBA.
Doors open at 7 pm. Free to the public.
