The North 41 To Hold #NODAPL Benefit Concert In Chicago

first_imgAs the mainstream media continues to largely ignore the protests going on in North Dakota over the Dakota Access Pipeline, many artists and bands (both big and small) are using their voice to assist the Native Americans, specifically the Sioux people, and other protestors that are currently on-site at Standing Rock, peacefully protesting the the building of a pipeline that will not only threaten sacred burial sites, but could very well pollute the Missouri River, a major water source for millions and millions of Americans with just one potential accidental leak.Chicago-based funk/jamband The North 41 have announced their own benefit show, set to take in their hometown at Schuba’s on Friday, December 16th (purchase tickets here). With protestors being blasted with water cannons, along with being pepper sprayed by militarized police forces in now freezing temperatures, they need all the help they can get. The #NODAPL benefit concert will donate ALL ticket proceeds directly to protestors, who are in dire need of supplies, ranging from blankets, warm clothes, canned food, and more.The event will also feature sit-ins from a number of local musicians, Joey Pettrone & The Scarecrow Army, Katie & Les Bates, several guest speakers that will discuss the issues facing those at Standing Rock, and of course, plenty of positive music. A full list of in-demand items can be found at www.sacredstonecamp.org. Regardless of whether or not you can make the show, any donations and assistance to the protestors would be extremely helpful.last_img read more
