Saint Martin's concert promises to raise a laugh - and social awareness

Feb. 16, 2006

Lacey, Wash. – Musician/songwriter David Rovics, sometimes called “the musical voice of the Progressive Movement,” and English punk rocker/poet Attila the Stockbroker will perform at 7:30 March 2 at Saint Martin’s University’s Student Union Building. The program, sponsored by the university’s Social Action and Democratic Donkey clubs, is free, although donations are encouraged to cover costs.

Both performers have been familiar voices for years on the world’s musical, literary and political circuits.

Rovics, whose social commentary includes many of his own songs also draws from a rich tradition of protest and folk music in his appearances as he challenges audiences to think about existing social and political structures.

Attila, who has earned his living as a poet since 1982, is known among fans for his radical and often humorous views. He has released 14 music/poetry albums in five countries and authored four books of poems including “Goldstone Ghosts,” published in 2001. He also has written for numerous publications.
