Rock Out of Iraq

“One great rock show can change the world!” -- Jack Black, School of Rock

From the
Daily Herald (my links):
Peace concert planned Saturday

Bands Not Bombs, a free outdoor concert for peace [link to .pdf flyer] sponsored by a coalition of area peace groups, will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Old Town Park, 111 Third St., Bloomingdale.

Featured bands will be: Agents of Change, Expendable Youth, La Armada, and Phillip Morris. A special collection will be taken to support Midwest Homeless Vets Shelter in Aurora.

From 3:30 to 4:40 p.m., there will be a peace walk and street vigil march to Congressman Peter Roskam's Bloomingdale office four blocks away, and attendees are invited to bring their own signs expressing support for the troops by bringing them home from Iraq.

For details, call Kevin Lindemann at (630) 690-4031.
I don't know if this will change the world, but I sure wish something like this had transpired in my neck of the woods when I was a youngster.

As a kid I had to drive 360 miles -- one way! -- to see Metallica's "Damaged Justice Tour".

And yes, that was before Metallica sucked.
