A Benefit for Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters (BACH) and Earth First!

$10-$15 sliding scale
An annual tradition now entering its second decade, Stomp the Stumps! brings together some of the Bay Area’s most dedicated political rock and dance bands for fundraising concerts to help save what’s left of natural Northern California. Berkeley’s Funky Nixons, who have played in all eleven Stomp the Stumps, are a rocking band with honking sax that uses pointedly political and usually satirical lyrics to rally listeners to the causes of the day. Not as irreverent but just as rocking, the Quilt also donates its music to community causes, playing Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan covers as well as original down-low, rollicking rhythm and blues inspired by the Jerry Garcia Band, Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, and more. Curly, a San Jose-based “playa dust quirk rock band,” opens the show.
Money raised goes to Bay Area Coalition for Headwaters, a project of the Ecology Center, and Earth First! BACH collaborates with grassroots activists on California’s North Coast and organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, working to ensure preservation of the redwood forest ecosystem through real solutions for workers and communities.
