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.
