Songs for Tom O’Halleran and Kyle Nitschke!

August 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Time to listen to some music! Get ready for equal parts wisdom & willful ignorance plus a dash of inane banter…And we’ll definitely be chatting about how to make this place just a tad better.  This show is to support Tom O’Halleran for US Congress and Kyle Nitschke for the Arizona Senate.

Have a friend who complains? Here’s a chance to keep them sane!  We will listen to some music, hear from Kyle, then discuss ways to help.
Performances from Crys Matthews & Pete Kronowitt.
We’ll have special guests at the event to help you get involved. But you don’t need to wait. If you have time, volunteer. If you don’t have time, donate.
Crys Matthews, hailed as “the next Woody Guthrie,” is among the brightest stars of the new generation of social justice music-makers. A powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she lightheartedly calls “the poster-child for intersectionality.” With the release of her new, hope-fueled, love-filled social justice album Changemakers, she tackles some heavy topics like immigration, the opioid crisis, Black Lives Matter, and gun safety. Matthews cemented her acclaim as the 2017 Grand Prize Winner of the New Song Music Competition at Lincoln Center and recently received the 2021 Folk Alliance International’s Song of the Year Award for “Changemakers.” Matthews also won the People’s Music Network’s Social Justice Songs contest at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance and won the 2022 Folk Alliance International song of the year. https://www.crysmatthews.com
Pete Kronowitt
If Steve Earle and Elvis Costello got pissed enough to write political tunes, they would sound like Pete Kronowitt songs. With 5 albums, Pete combines performing and activism. Pete’s new album, Do Something Now, was released in September 2020.
“Do Something Now … minces no words in telling listeners to “get off your ass,” is downright bouncy with a catchy earworm chorus.” -antiMusic, October 2020
