NO MORE WAR: Maggie May | Chit Holdems | Sista Mista

This is our 2nd annual fundraiser for IRAQ VETERANS AGAINST THE WAR. Please bring money to donate; it goes to support the actions of activist veterans in telling their stories, engaging in anti-war protests, and supporting social justice causes all over the country.


Why, after sixteen years, do our soldiers continue serving in Afghanistan and Iraq with no end in sight?

Why do our representatives in congress and the senate continue to approve unilateral war making powers to the executive branch?

Why, when our military expenses are over half of our national budget, and our military budget is larger than the next ten countries combined (by a large margin), do our representatives continue to increase it?

Why, in a country that always claims to support their troops, are our veterans far too often left without the resources they need after serving in our nation's wars?

Why are we so quick as citizens to claim support for our veterans, but often let their stories, voices, and conviction fall on deaf ears?

Where is the voice for peace, both in congress and in the streets, to protect veterans, future veterans, and the civilians caught in the crossfire in unnecessary wars?

Join us as we speak to these issues and present some incredible talent from the SW Michigan community, including:

MAGGIE MAY (Folk-Punk)

CHIT HOLDEMS (Anti-Fascist Country)

SISTA MISTA (Sci-Fi Political Hip-Hop)

SHOW STARTS at 6:30PM down at the

Halloween Begins: Evil Deauxerz | No Skull | Nekomata | Boron Nuzzle

From the ashes of DS9
Comes thrills and chills sure to combine
Into a ghoulish scene straight from your dreams
Musical performances that shall make you scream

that will shake the core of your mortal soul
A rare house engagement and one can tell
They'll bring fun and raucous from the pits of hell

NO SKULL from Lansing comes yonder here
The PUNK of forty thousand years
SLUDGEY riffs emanating from these ghouls
If you miss it you'd be a fool

NEKOMATA shall seal your DOOM
As their METAL envelops the room
The fog rolls in and brings you terror
Miss this and you'd be in error

And grisly ghouls emerge from their tomb...
Distort reality as they play the room...
And though you fight to stay alive...
Your body starts to shiver...
For all mere mortals shall become quite befuddled...
By the return from the dead of BORON NUZZLE

---Bring money for the traveling skulls.
---Respect the house.
---Dressing in your best HALLOWEEN garb is thoroughly encouraged.
