RNC protest shows gaining traction: Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Atmosphere, et al.
'Take Back Labor Day,' is the St. Paul protest concert (on Harriet Island) orchestrated to coincide with the RNC, about which I posted a while back. The line-up already had some politically charged umph with the likes of Tom Morello and Steve Earle playing hosts. Now the event's official site has confirmed series of additional acts including Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, local heroes Atmosphere, Billy Bragg and Allison Moorer. Tickets go for a mere $10. Who would have ever thought it was a good thing to live in the city of the RNC?
