Rock for Barack
Rock for Barack benefits MoveOn.org, but also those citizens committed to
diversity and the striving black rockers who blazed a trail toward true
liberation, just like presidential hopeful Obama. Black Rock Coalition
founding acts Living Colour and the Family Stand will fly the freaky-deak
electric flag as fiercely as ever. Bringing a fresh wave of excitement and
transformative sonics to this celebration are Earl Greyhound, Viva Mayday,
and Danielia Cotton, who has been touring steadily and earning raves for her
heavy-blues second album, Rare Child. Cotton and her fine three-piece band,
helmed by guitarist Kareem Devlin, will surely Testify and take evrbody
to the electric church. Change never sounded better.
