Saturday, January 7, 7:30 PM Show; 7 door: Foraging and the Rattling Bones, CD Release and Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar Sale (Tickets Now On Sale, sliding scale $10-20; drop by the store or call 541-345-8986 to reserve.)
Foraging and the Rattling Bones is an old time-y string band from the dank woods of the coast range of Oregon, playing frantic fiddle tunes and rowdy sing-alongs with an emphasis on anti-capitalism, environmental justice and gender queering. Their lyrics are radical and new. Their music is infectious! Folks, this will be a concert like we haven’t had in many years here at the Bookbarn. This band is just getting going. Looking forward to watching them grow.
You can check out other recordings and find more information about the band on their social media and our youtube channel:
______________________________________________ Calendars will be available the day of the show, 1/7/2023, for $15 each. All proceeds benefit political prisoners, so get one now and start your new year with these radical dates on your wall.
The Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers across North America and political prisoner Xinachtli (s/n Alvaro Luna Hernandez) in Texas. The calendar has been in production since 2001 and features twelve pieces of art and twelve essays. We were happy to welcome founding members Herman Bell and Robert Seth Hayes (Rest in Power) home from prison in 2018, and founding member David Gilbert home from prison in 2021. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer- and trans-liberationist position.
The 2023 Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners calendar features original art and articles by Zola, Jeff Monaghan and Andy Crosby, Kill joy, Noelle Hanrahan, Juan Hernandez, Dan Baker, Antiproduct, Upping the Anti, Katy Slininger, David Gilbert, Paul Lacombe, Garrett Felber, Oso Blanco, Mark Tilsen, Terra Poirier, Steve McCain, Lawrence Jenkins, Ed Mead, Windigo Army, Dio Cramer, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Scott Parkin, Seize the Mean, and Cindy Barukh Milstein.
