Protest Music

Protest and topical music including comedy. We're interested in the history of protest music, for instance labor songs, civil rights songs, anti war songs. We also feature contemporary protest music and we particularly want to hear your protest songs.

This is an open group. Please join and post your diaries. If you want to help manage the group message me and I'll make you a BlogEditor.

Of course Protest Music is on topic. But it doesn't have to be both. Protest or Music. Protest is on topic. Music is on topic.

NOTE: My title is taken from the song, No Bravery by former British soldier, James Blunt. I think it is sadly appropriate for this terrible moment in our nation's history.

From Solidarity: Announcement for "Joe Hill Edition" of the I. W. W. Songbook

Joe Hill
The December 12th issue of Solidarity brings the announcement of a special "Joe Hill Edition" of the famous I. W. W. songbook. Each songbook will contain an insert "explaining the outrage [the unjust conviction of FW Hill] and calling for action on the part of every purchaser of a copy of the songs."

This is the eighth edition of the songbook. There are four new songs included in this edition (see below), and, although none of the new songs are by Hill, there is a new song by Ralph Chaplin about the imprisoned rebel and the struggle to save him from death at the receiving end of a Utah firing squad.

The second verse warns us:

They’d fill his warrior heart with lead
And gloat to see him safely dead-
His voice forever hushed and still,
Our singing, fighting brave Joe Hill!

The last verse reminds us:

He made them hate him high and low;
They feared his tuneful message so;
He’d fight for us while he had breath-
We’ll save him from the jaws of death!

This poem by Joe Hill can also be found in the newly released songbook:

wooden shoe, sabot
If Freedom's road seems rough and hard,
And strewn with rocks and thorns,
Then put your wooden shoes on, pard,
And you won't hurt your corns.
To organize and teach, no doubt,
Is very good -- that's true,
But still we can't succeed without
The Good Old Wooden Shoe.
 Hairy Larry's Merry Pranksters
 

Hi,

I've got a new band project going and since we're sixties heavy in our repertoire I came up with the name Hairy Larry's Merry Pranksters. Then as I was working on the website I realized that the name fits most of my past musical experience so I am including a variety of other projects including my Three Songs From Astral Weeks performed with strings and pennywhistle at TheArtsAt311.

I'll probably post a piece I wrote for Tuba Euphonium quartet next.

So here's the link.

Please check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Hairy Larry

 Announcing Daily Kos' first Regional Conference — Save the date!
 
Connect! Unite! Act! banner
Our first Regional Daily Kos Conference will be held in
Kansas City on April 25, 2015!

Chris Reeves, who blogs at Daily Kos as tmservo433, is our Connect! Unite! Act! leader for Kansas and Missouri. He's a great example of local organizing and will be directing us regarding the agenda for the conference. He's done an outstanding job of working with other progressive groups in Kansas this past election on registering disenfranchised voters, working to provide that every county has a Democratic headquarters set up and inviting progressives to sign up at Daily Kos. He credits our site with effectively broadcasting his events around the state. We want to duplicate his effort across the nation. The conference will focus on organizing from the ground up and why that's important.

The venue will be announced soon. If you're flying in, plan on arriving the Friday night before because our seminar will start first thing Saturday morning and continue until late afternoon. We'll have a Friday early evening welcoming bash and Saturday evening there'll be a big closing party. Sunday morning will be an opportunity for individual groups to meet on their own before others have to fly out.

Stay tuned to our morning series Connect! Unite! Act! that posts every day at 7:30 AM Pacific. There we'll update information on the venue, local hotel suggestions, agenda specifics and RSVPs. Markos, Meteor Blades, Joan McCarter, David Nir and other staff members will attend. There will likely be an inexpensive registration fee to secure attendance commitment. Scholarships will be available.

Other regional conferences will be announced soon.

Daily Kos will organize locally in every congressional district, including the reddest of them. There is no other progressive forum like Daily Kos. Let's take advantage of our 24/7 conversation and the large population of readers. You can look for a group to join here and if you don't see one, please consider starting one. Kosmail me if you'd like to lead a Daily Kos group.

Let's connect all the like-minded readers here in real life and get some political work done.

 Cue the World's Tiniest Violin
 

NBC News foreign correspondent Richard Engel has been getting an earful from folks at Langley about the Senate Intel Committee's report on torture, and America's spooks are quite the Grumpy Cats this week. Yesterday, he told Ronan Farrow.

“The CIA was asked to do this; was given authorizations to do this. And now many people involved are saying to me privately, ‘Now we’re being held out to dry. You asked us to do this, and now the world is coming down on top of it,” Engel said.
The refrain was similar on Hardball.
"Now they feel like they're being punished for it."

 If There's A War On Christmas (Christmas Is Winning)
 

Just like the swallows returning to Capistrano, or kids returning to school, Fox News is returning to its favorite made-up victimization complaint.  Here's this Jewish mother's musical response:  

 Jazz: Christmas
 

It’s somewhat amazing really, we as a culture have an entire repertoire of songs dedicated to the “Christmas” season.  Heck, multiple cultures have songs only played at this time of year. By the actual Christmas holiday, we’re also all largely sick of every single one of these songs.

So while I want to take this evening to listen to some of my favorites before I get to the point where I want to shoot myself if I hear another Christmas song, I also want to celebrate some of the best known jazz ever recorded. And some great Rock and Roll Xmas tunes as well!

It’s Christmas Time Charlie Brown!
