Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 7-7:30pm
Join conscious rebel artists, Zro Prophet of X-Vandals, Savage Family, Shining Soul, and Alas for dinner and an evening of sharing our struggles, stories, music and finding strength in one another. We’ll be breaking bread and sharing stories of our struggles for land, water, culture and dignity. As we move into the evening there will be some informal performances from those on the tour. This will be a largely informal affair intended to bring together activists and artists from divergent communities and help build new bonds or strengthen old ones, as we create a more powerful community of resistance in the occupied Duwamish territory called Seattle. The dinner conversation will be lightly moderated and performances will be informal. The next day on May 11th our friends at CHURCH will be hosting the Warrior Hip-Hop tour for an awesome event and show: https://www.facebook.com/events/289553324537971/ We strongly encourage folks to support the Warriors at CHURCH as well as attending this dinner. We hope that both events will help us cross pollinate across cultural and political boundaries and build a stronger and more unified culture of resistance in our City. *A Vegetarian Dinner will be served. The event is part a fundraiser to keep the tour going but noone turned away for lack of funds! All proceeds go to support the Warrior Tour. *Accessibility – The entrance to this event is down a flight of 5 steps. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance accessing the space and we will do our best to accomodate. This event is Family Friendly! From the Warrior Tour Artists: We are revolutionary artists who choose to utilize our creativity to continue to build movement and solidarity across all sectors. Our music is crafted to educate and inform, to fight oppression and stand up for our rights, to inspire and fight back. This is not just a concert tour. It is a way to share our struggles and find strength amongst impacted communities who face similar realities. We do not just make music that fills the air with noise, our songs are stories of how we actively engage in social justice work in our our daily lives. Our messages remember the importance of our planet and water. We understand that is up to us to create a vision for our future. About the Artists: ZroProphet Afro-Taino/Borikwa by way of the Bronx and occupied Puerto Rico, MC and agitator, Not4Prophet, of X-Vandals (X-Vandals.com) and the AGIT Army (Agitarmy.org).

He is from the illegally occupied territory now known as washington. His music is rooted in and influenced by the many lives that he has been touched by. His voice represents that of the oppressed, the have nots, the poor and unfortunate and the unmentionables of society. His gritty lyrical ability was forged in the streets and found further strength in the spiritual/cultural foundations of his ancestors.. He spits in an intelligent and precise manner that is rivaled by few. Ant Loc is mostly unheard of as of yet outside of Indigenous/Native communities but is now prepared to share the music that fulfills the prophecies of his people that will make the cities crumble. https://soundcloud.com/savagefambam Shining Soul Straight outta the desert borough, Arizona’s premier Hip Hop duo Shining Soul, shows that the element of rap still is a conduit for revolutionary change. Fronted by MCs Liaizon of Central Phoenix/Tohono O’odham Nation and Bronze Candidate of South Phoenix, Shining Soul brings to light the social injustices that attack their daily lives, such as the criminalization and militarization of indigenous and immigrant communities, while sharing and maintaining the essence of hip hop culture. Shining Soul’s emphasis on skills, style, and substance, has made them a potent force in the Arizona Hip-Hop community, which is fully exhibited in their explosive live shows. Shining Soul’s latest full-length release “SONIC SMASH” exemplifies their skills, diversity, subject matter, and overall commitment in carrying on the transformative art of Hip Hop through the element of rap. So stay tuned, keep your ears low to the ground, and check for SHINING SOUL in a big city, small town, native reservation, and protest near you…WE GOT THIS. http://shiningsoulmusic.bandcamp.com/ Alas makes music that braids her lived experience as an undocumented mujer subsisting on stolen land with the theories of rebellious decolonization. Her words pump from the raw heart of a living revolutionary to heal with her double hearted mujeres en la lucha while pushing resistance movements to sustain an effective level of militancy. She struggles for a better world on and off the mic – she co-hosts a mobile free zine library, organizes against police brutality, and treads the forest to protect endangered species. Liberation is her life’s goal, brutal truth is her musics vow. https://soundcloud.com/alasmusika
