Operation Ceasefire

I have been working hard on a promising project with Adam Eidinger, who ran during the last election as D.C.'s delegate to the House of Representatives on the Statehood/Green Party. Operation Ceasefire is an anti-war concert at the Washington Monument on the evening of the September 24th peace mobilization. Local electronica duo Thievery Corporation are fronting half the startup costs. They intend to make a live CD and DVD of the concert, and all proceeds will benefit United for Peace and Justice and the local group I am involved with the D.C. Anti-War Network.

Acts who have signed on to this historical concert:
Thievery Corporation
Le Tigre
Bouncing Souls
Steve Earle
Ted Leo and The Pharmacists
Head-Roc
Wayne Kramer of MC-5
Jello Biafra

We are excited with the potential for this event to grow! We will have a press conference this Wednesday at noon at The National Press Club in downtown D.C.
