Occupy Edmonton is celebrating the Christmas season with an Occupy music show!
9535 Jasper Avenue
Doors open @ 7:00 PM
Friday December 16, 2011
By donation, at the door!
Guests Scott Cook, Quetzala Carson, the Key of H, the Tom Roschkov Implosion and the Raging Grannies are occupying the stage to usher in the Christmas season.
Let’s gather together some great musicians, invite our friends
and head on down to the Artery to drive off winter’s gloom, chase
away the chills and enjoy some camaraderie and yuletide cheer.
A one man groove revival, this travelling minstrel, is to quote Fish Griwkowski, “warm like a campfire, familiar like the lake down the road.” He can one moment make you think and the next having you dancing, carefree and joyful.
The Tom Roschkov Implosion
A power trio that forms the nucleus of Edmonton’s excellent long loved Stone Merchants. They are not strangers to bringing joy and Yuletide cheer to folk’s hearts with two of the members having large roles in the much loved Christmas Carol Project. They are looking forward to rocking out for you at the Occupy Yuletide Party!
Now, according to Quetzala Carson’s business card, she is an activist, composer, musician, and vocalist. What it does not say is what a powerful vocalist she is. Quetzala uses her voice to good effect in activism here in Canada and for the youth in her home country of Nicaragua.
The Key of H
They promise some fine rock and roll to shake your tail feathers to (they also showed up at the camp with donations of food and work, yay!).
The Raging Grannies
Keeping the evening on an even keel will be the Raging Grannies
acting as Masters of Ceremonies. The Grannies have cut their
teeth on union picket lines, rallies and protests but they are happy
for the chance to help you get down and funky at the Occupy
Come one, come all to occupy the dancefloor!
