Information Is Strength. Knowledge Is Power.
I have been an avid reader of The Shadow newspaper forever since the beginning of time as a former squatter and now a rent paying wage slave tenant in the Lower East Side which is now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe. Their paper is great for everything superpolitics and saving the world. And while I am on the topic of writing about summer msic festivals as in the previous post, here is another cool music concert to check out if you are in the neighborhood. The shadow press and other groups have been the organizers of the first annual Squatter Mayday concerts and now the Blackkat concerts. Here is a MySpace email I received from them. Their concerts always rock. Happy summer music festivals again.
TSP SHOW 7/29
Here's a sponorship letter we're sending out for our show. I've sent this letter in person to lotsa places around the E. Village, and I want to hit up more places -- if you can steer me to any people or places I can pursue and/or if you can pass the letter on, I'd appreciate it.
Please spread the word about this show wherever you can....
Also, you're welcome to set up a table there!!
SPONSORS SOUGHT FOR CONCERT IN TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK:
The SHADOW, New York's only underground newspaper, has been publishing on the Lower East Side since 1989. Since 2005, we have been producing concerts in Tompkins Square Park celebrating homegrown NYC counter-culture, with bands, artists, speakers and information dissemination. More than just presenting music and talent from our area, we are emphasizing political awareness and community support of residents, local businesses and alternative venues in the face of rising rents and rampant gentrification.
Our next show will take place in Tompkins Square Park on the site of the bandshell on Sunday, July 29, 2007, from 2:00-6:00pm.
Featured bands will include:
> Reagan Youth
> False Prophets
> The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black
In order for us to continue to produce shows of the highest quality, we are looking for community-based sponsors. We have three levels of suggested sponsorship, all of which are sliding scale, depending on what you can afford (we can work out whatever arrangement works for you):
> $100.00: Your logo and/or business name on our concert posters, leaflets and on our web sites: (http://shadowpress.org) (http://tsplive.org)
> $200.00: Same as the $100.00 level, plus your table in the park during the show from which you can sell or give out items and we'll give you a shout out from the stage
> $300.00: Same as the $200.00 level, plus a free ad in the next issue of the SHADOW
If you cannot sponsor, your donation in any amount would be greatly appreciated – we can accept checks made payable to: "SHADOW Press."
We thank you for your support!
