HONK! Festival: 2 Days, 13 Activist Brass Bands
Featuring Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, Stick & Rag Village Orchestra, Hungry March Band, & more!
Saturday, October 7 @ 9:00AM
The first-ever HONK! Festival (www.honkfest.org) is a Fall gathering of activist brass bands from across North America. Acoustic and mobile, these street bands all support the actions and aspirations of the progressive community, providing the soundtrack for peace rallies, social forums, relief benefits, community fundraisers and joyous reclamations of public space. All of these bands honk their horns -- or beat their drums or wave their flags -- for the same reasons motorists honk theirs: to arouse fellow travelers, to warn of danger, to celebrate special occasions, and to just plain have fun. From Saturday-Sunday, October 7-8.
