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.
