JUNE 26, SUNDAY, SEATTLE PEACE CONCERTS. Join us for an afternoon of fun and music in MAGNUSEN PARK, celebrating 25 years of Seattle Peace Concerts. Music starts about noon, Happy Savage plays early, about 1:15, so get there early! We'll be followed by Little Big Man, Vegitation, and Clinton Fearon.
Magnusen Park is the same as Sandpoint, at the east end of NE 65th St.
Beth Collins will be joining us, and Guido Perla of Little Big Man on drums.
APRIL 22, FRIDAY, EARTH DAY, we will be playing a benefit for the Native Forest Council, at the NECTAR LOUNGE in FREMONT. The show starts at 9:30 with "10 Pound Libido". HAPPY SAVAGE plays at about 11:30. Tell your friends! Come on out and make it a party! Beth Collins will be joining us, and Guido Perla of Little Big Man on drums.
The door charge will be $7, which goes to support the Native Forest Council. Bring a used CD or movie for $2 off. These will be sold by EcoEncore to support the Native Forest Council. The Nectar Lounge is at 412 N. 36th St., phone 206-632-2020.
The Native Forest Council is working to end destructive extraction industries operating in National Forests. Strip-mining and clearcutting cause extensive environmental damage to public lands, and often receive huge subsidies at taxpayer expense. Ending these practices is a good cause to support, and you can have fun at the same time!
