IN THE SPIRIT OF CRASS …

My friends Jon and Tammy are members of WE R DYING 2 KILL U, the band that will be providing back-up to poet / author / musician Penny Rimbaud (co-founder of the essential UK punk agit-pop band CRASS) and his friend / musical co-conspirator, saxophonist Louise Eliot, at the always-radical Suoni il per Popolo festival in June. Jon and Tammy are organizing a kick-ass fundraiser to help defray the costs of bringing Penny Rimbaud and Louise Eliot over to Montreal. It’s ten bucks at the door, Sala Rossa, a great price for an evening packed with music, dance, video screenings and performance art. There’s also going to be an art auction, featuring some of Canada’s finest artists. I’ll be helping out with between-act MCing and poems suitable to the occasion.
