There will be a benefit concert to support organizing against the Chicago G8 and NATO Summits on October 29th at St. Augustine College. David Rovics will be the artist for this show. A snip from David's website bio says
"David lives with his family in Portland, Oregon and tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, he will make the revolution irresistible."
The G8 is an unofficial forum of the heads of the leading industrialized democracies who meet to deal with the major economic and political issues facing member countries and the international community. (Reuters)FACTBOX: The Group of Eight: what is it?
