We present for you an exciting bill of two very different bands who both bring out the compelling rhythms to ease your brain and soul out of the deepfreeze of the daily grind, while imploring you to get up and shake that thing. THIS SHOW IS NOT TO BE MISSED!
Deejay begins at 9. The Murder Elite goes on at 10.
cost: a measly $5. Cheap! refreshments will be available.

This is a concert to benefit Mark Pelletier, a long time community activist with Kaos Puppets and Spontaneous Celebrations facing eviction from his current living situation. Mark has four children (one currently living with him) and is caring for Eric Weinburger, a lifetime peace activist suffering advanced Alzheimers. Eric is cofounder of Food Not Bombs (leaderless volunteers feeding the homeless and poor with 200+ chapters across the country) who took part in the Freedom Marches in the South during the 50's and 60's. Eric was a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and Congress for Racial Equality (CORE). His lifetime dedication to social justice has resulted in his being disowned by his remaining family members. Eric is a legendary figure in the Civil Rights Movement of the 60's who has given his entire life in service to the poor and disenfranchised. Mark, a former Food Not Bomber and close friend, and his teenaged son Glen are Eric's primary caregivers; they chose this path rather than relegate Eric to an isolated demise in some impersonal geriatric home. The money raised tonight will be used to pay a security deposit for a new home.

Spontaneous Celebrations is at 41 Danforth Street, Jamaica Plain

Conveniently located two blocks from the Stonybrook T stop on the Orange Line. Exit from T station and go right onto Boylston, pass one traffic light, and the next immediate right is Danforth street. 41 is the big yellow building on the left. You can't miss it unless you're blind.

Driving directions: South on Jamaicaway, left turn onto Perkins Street, go straight through one set of lights, you come to a rotary (this is Jackson Square, where the Milky Way is), take a right onto Centre Street (don't go through the rotary), then first left onto Paul Gore Street. Follow Paul Gore to the end, take a right onto Lamartine. The next light is Lamartine and Boylston; take a right. first right off Boylston is Danforth. 41 is the big bright yellow building on the left. You've reached Spontaneous Celebrations, a community center that was begun after the JP community fought a proposed interstate extension in the 70's running along the Southwest Corridor.
