Raise Up MN, State Fair Performance, Art/Activism Intersections

The busiest summer of my life continues.
This Friday, I will be performing at the MN State Fair. The show is part of a full day of workshops, direct action and performances organized by the MN AFL-CIO Young Workers group, in collaboration with the Summer of Solidarity Tour. All of the workshop, direct action and concert info is at THIS LINK; they are asking people to register, but registering also has certain perks. And the workshops should be very cool. You can, of course, just show up and watch too. The concert starts at 6pm at the MN AFL-CIO Labor Pavillion. See More Perspective, Lioness, Lydia Liza and more will also be playing.

Related to that, my Opine Season column this week is about trying to put our heads together and come up with some ideas for stronger, healthier, more effective artist/activist partnerships. I have some ideas, and I hope you have some too-- leave a comment over there.

I'm looking forward to taking a break. I mean, there are no breaks scheduled, but I'm still looking forward to the IDEA of taking a break. In case you missed them, be sure to check out my new video, "A Visit from the PC Police," as well as my new album, SIFU HOTMAN (available for free download),
