Coldplay Donate Items For '911 Power to the Peaceful Festival' Fundraiser
Jack Johnson, Queens of the Stone Age and Coldplay all donated items to be auctioned off Thursday at 12 Galaxies for a fundraiser for the 911 Power to the Peaceful Festival.
Michael Franti and Spearhead's annual, daylong call for peace is Sept. 9 at Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park and will feature Franti, Blackalicious, Los Mocosos and New Monsoon. Thursday's fundraiser will feature beatboxer extraordinaire RadioActive and the JP Cutler Band.
Go to powertothepeaceful.org for details.
On August 24, beatbox wizard RadioActive, psycho-delicrock ensemble JP Cutler Band, Women In Rock founder Bernadette & Friends and Making Dinner perform for a fundraiser for Michael Franti & Spearhead’s
“Power to the Peaceful Festival.”
Long-time Spearhead collaborator RadioActive headlines the fundraiser on August 24th. His long-awaited debut full-length recording effort BMMNM Vol 1. Breakbox highlights his prodigious vocal beats, rhymes and scratches. An emcee, beatboxer, writer, painter and B Boy, RadioActive is a pioneering musical force on the San Francisco scene, a genuine innovator taking the human voice to ambitious heights. The JP Cutler Band shares the bill with their Rock/Americana tunes drenched in Indian classical psychodelic soundscapes. Berndatte & Friends will perform original soulful tunes, and Making Dinner open up the night with their folk influenced repertoire.
While the state of the world is so quickly changing overnight, with wars abroad violently ripping apart long-standing cultures and people, it’s often the duty of musicians and artists to raise awareness of the most pressing injustices and world issues. Come join us for a special evening of fundraising for Michael Franti’s “Power to the Peaceful Festival.”
RadioActive w/ Mike D + Johnny Downer (Free Peoples) & Kevin Carnes (Broun Fellinis)
