At 2:00 p.m. Saturday May 3, Dan Montgomery (singer/songwriter), Antique Curtains (punk), Giant Bear (roots rock), and The Third Man (post-rock) will all take part in a free outdoor music event near the grounds of the National Civil Rights Museum in downtown Memphis to commemorate the fifth anniversary of George W. Bush's "Mission Accomplished" event on the USS Abraham Lincoln.
Each band will be mixing their own original material--including some songs written specifically for this occasion!--with "classic" protest songs (Dylan, Guthrie, Seeger, even some Springsteen, et al.)
The event is be co-promoted by our friends at the Midsouth Peace and Justice Center (midsouthpeace.org.) This event is FREE and open to the public, so please join us.
