Benefit Show for Standing Rock (featuring Kill the Vultures, deM atlaS, and More
The fight for Standing Rock is not over! The recent victory of the Army Corps of Engineers denying a permit is good news but it’s hardly a definitive victory. The corporations behind the Dakota Access Pipeline are still convinced that they’ll be able to move ahead with their plans once Trump takes office. The protesters still need support and resources to make sure that doesn’t happen. To that end we’re happy to share with you the following benefit show featuring kill the Vulres, deM atlaS, Kristoff Krane, and Los Nativos. Should be a great night of musis for a great cause! Details below (from the event’s facebook page):
We are pleased to announce a benefit concert for Standing Rock, in order to show solidarity with their fight to protect the water, the land and the people from illegal, exploitative, invading forces.

100% of proceeds from this event are being donated directly to the Sacred Stone Sicangu camp, with an immediate goal of proving support for woman and young children committed to camping through the winter. Donations will be hand-delivered immediately following the event, via instructions from the camp elders.
Parkway Theater will also serve as a donation drop site for Winter Camping Supplies, and select bulk food items.
(Note: the Camp has asked for no more canned or pre-packages foods, as trash and waste management is becoming a challenge)
An up to date donation list is available at: http://
The camp does NOT need any additional winter clothing, or shower supplies/junk that you don’t want anymore. They are asking for:

The leaders and tribal elders have shared that in light of the recent news that the Army Corps of Engineers has denied the easement, the fight is still not over, and there is more work to be done.
