On January 11th, 2014, Marie Mason’s art will be on display alongside hundreds of other prisoners’ art as part of a month long exhibit entitled With Conviction: Art and Letters from Behind Prison Walls.
If you’re near Sacramento, make sure to check this out. Also, the organizers are fundraising to fly out Anthony Rayson and his partner Michael Ploski, who have collected most of the art that will be on display. If fundraised successfully, the two will be on hand for the opening to speak of the art collected and the politics and messages behind much of the work. You can contribute at the Kickstarter page here- http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/238264289/with-conviction-art-and-letters-from-behind-prison
In 1999, Marie Mason put out the powerful neo-folk album , Not for Profit. We’re excited that this is now available for all to hear on soundcloud. You are free to listen and download the album in its entirety here.
If you’d like to make a donation in return for the album, you may do so by visiting her paypal page.
The album features guitarist and Earth First! activist Darryl Cherney, Steve Hesh, Peter Amazing, Che Guevara, Tony Askins, Edie Morris, and Peter Childs.
The Music for Prisoners and Marie Mason in Minneapolis on Nov. 12 went well. A very good, young Native hip-hop act called “Savage Instinct” opened the evening before singer/songwriter David Rovics performed. Many of the organizers of the RNC protests were there, and others who have been involved with direct action protests including the Minnehaha Free State back in the 90′s.
Note: David’s new CD, Meanwhile In Afghanistan
, is now available for purchase at his online store
, along with the 8-CD David Rovics Combo Pack, the 99-song Playbutton MP3 player and more merch!
