David Rovics and Chis Chandler will be at Revolution (211 Main
Street) in downtown Bryan tonight starting at 8 PM. This is a show
not to miss.
David Rovics was last in town approximately a year ago when he
performed for a benefit for Veterans for Peace and the Cost of War
video where he put on a truly fantastic and inspiring
show. According to Amy Goodman, "David Rovics is the musical version
of Democracy Now." David Barsamian, host of Alternative Radio, says,
"If Alternative Radio had a musical voice, it would be David Rovics.
He will tell the people." For more information on David Rovics and
to hear some tunes http://www.davidrovics.com/ .
Poet/singer Chris Chandler has been performing in the area for
several years but it has been a while since he's performed here.
According to the Boston Herald, "Chris Chandler is one of the most
radically Creative acts on the coffee house Circuit." The Washington
Post has written about him, "This Man Is Dangerous". However, I
assure you he's plenty humorous too. For more information on Chris
Chandler see http://www.chrischandler.org/
I have no idea what the cover charge will be ($5 ???) but I'm
certain it will be modest and well-worth it. I place below the email
write-up that Rola, manager of Revolution, sent out earlier.
P.S. An interview with David Rovics will appear in a few weeks on
Touchstone Radio. Be sure to listen if you have a chance.
Thursday 2/16 David Rovics and Chris Chandler will be performing at
8pm at Revolution
A Little Background...
David Rovics has been called the musical voice of the progressive
movement in the US. Amy Goodman has called him "the musical version of
Democracy Now!" Since the mid-90's Rovics has spent most of his time
on the road, playing hundreds of shows every year throughout North
America, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. He and his songs
have been featured on national radio programs in the US, Canada,
Britain, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, Denmark and elsewhere. He has shared
the stage regularly with leading intellectuals (Noam Chomsky, Howard
Zinn), activists (Medea Benjamin, Ralph Nader), politicians (Dennis
Kucinich, George Galloway), musicians (Billy Bragg, the Indigo Girls),
and celebrities (Martin Sheen, Susan Sarandon). He has performed at
dozens of massive rallies throughout North America and Europe and at
thousands of conferences, college campuses and folk clubs throughout
Few musicians can claim "on-the roadisms" the way Chris Chandler can.
He is a true veteran of the road, traveling across The United States
of Generica for many years. His anthology of road tales transforms
into a flock of doves beneath the musical high-wire act.
You can usually find him at demonstrations and protests - large and
small - all across the US and Canada. He was recently seen protesting
the FTAA in Miami, the G-8 in Calgary and the Iraq war (both of them)
in Washington, DC to name a few.
He's played union halls and debutante balls, picket lines and county
fairs, "Prestigious" folk clubs, and skid row laundromats. His
experience as a street performer and rabble rouser shine through every
performance making him a welcome addition to festivals, carnivals,
hayrides and riots, or where ever the rabble need to be roused.
