Dancespace Project hosts a live recording of musician and comedic performer Morgan Bassichis‘ first album More Protest Songs! Bassichis and band return for three evenings of music and stories. Says Bassichis, “The songs fall somewhere between adult lullabies and practical spells, and will not include concrete policy recommendations but maybe they should?” More Protest Songs! Morgan Bassichis Live at St. Mark’s Church, recorded October 7, 2017, will be available for purchase.
Album sales will be donated to Survived & Punished--a national network of activists working to defend incarcerated survivors of domestic and sexual violence--and Palestinian organizing for the historic Great Return March in Gaza. Find out more at survivedandpunished.org and #GreatReturnMarch.
