Joe Hill 100 Roadshow, Western Leg

Fellow workers, drifters, hobos, bindlestiffs, etc.,

We will continue the celebration of the life and work of the great Swedish songwriter, cartoonist and labor organizer, Joe Hill, with the western leg of the Joe Hill 100 Roadshow.

There are a whole bunch of great artists involved with each stop on the tour.  (The consistent thing with all of these gigs here on my blog is me and George Mann.)

Please share the itinerary below with people you know on the west coast of the US!

There are Facebook Event pages for each of these gigs, if you want to invite people to come to the gigs via that medium.

One of the ways we're funding this tour is through this online fundraising campaign, so please feel free to support it financially!  There are some cool rewards for donations, too.  (The sold-out show at the end of the tour, with Tom Morello and Joan Baez, is not related to this fundraising campaign, just so you know...)

Yours for the OBU,
David

This is one of the most astonishing venues that I've attended for my numerous experiences. The Chicago venues are spot on with the decorations. The overall experience was amazing! Had a fun and comfortable time here.
