did you hear? everyone is talking 'bout pittsburgh, pennsylvania these days. i got many invitations to go there this september 24-25 and protest against the famous g-20: the world's powerful who manage our daily lives.
there will be several city tents or camps in downtown pittsburgh and other nearby towns, but the city has denied them a permit to use public parks, still i hear thousands of people are going, and they should.
i'm passing the word out about the music camp though, where musicians and artists can stay over in pittsburgh from september 18 (11:00am) through 26 (7:00 pm) at the south side riverfront park (end of 18th street, off of east carson street, south side, pittsburgh, pennsylvania), 2 miles from downtown. you can take your sleeping beds and tents and stay for free there, hey, not everyone can pay at hotels or may not want to stay downtown.
on the 19th at 1:00 pm, there'll be an open mike in memory of john lennon for artists and musicians who want to express themselves artistically against g-20 with art and honest camaderie, nothing fancy, just for fun.
the music camp is organized by local poor artists who want to share art from grassroots to punkrock music, spoken word, and other source of creativity, but can only offer a spot for people to use that creativity, they ask for flexibility, personal responsibility, and respect to the park. and what do you know? city park permit pending!
everyone in pittsburgh on september 18th!
go music camp!
(mark your calendars)
