David Rovics with guests: Attila the Stockbroker, Ryan Harvey and Folk This!
A Benefit for the Common Ground Collective in New Orleans
$5-10.00 suggested.

David Rovics is from Massachusetts, and incredibly perceptive, intelligent, incisive, angry songs, sung to a supremely accomplished acoustic guitar backing: the heir to the mantle of Pete Seeger and Phil Ochs. He is permanently on tour – in the US, the UK and all over mainland Europe - and recently returned from the occupied territories in Palestine. He sings at political rallies and demonstrations all over the place, and his songs are becoming increasingly heard on the radio, from ‘Democracy Now’ in the US to Andy Kershaw’s national BBC folk music radio show in the UK.

Attila the Stockbroker is from Brighton on the south coast of England and he has just celebrated 25 years traveling the world earning his living as a punk rock poet, political satirist and hard-edged songwriter. Imagine a hyperactive mix of The Clash, Jello Biafra and Monty Python! Attila’s themes are topical, his words hard-hitting, his politics unashamedly radical, but he will make you roar with laughter as well as seethe with anger. He’s released loads of CDs/LPs and 4 books of poetry, done well over 2000 gigs all across Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the East Coast of the US, but this is his first ‘proper’ West Coast tour.
