new protest music (english)
24 Jun 2003
Modified: 03:08:05 PM
Protest singer/songwriter Evan Greer has released his first album, "against the blinking green." With eloquent lyrics and powerful music, Greer takes a stand against war, capitalism, the State, and authoritarianism. This song, "over here and over there," is a sample. In the tradition of David Rovics, much or all of the music will soon be available for free on his website:
www.geocities.com/evangreer2003.
After a long wait, Evan Greer's first album, "against the blinking green" is finally available. The song here is just one sample from the album, but we are trying to post everything if possible on www.geocities.com/evangreer2003
Activist, poet, and protest musician Evan Greer, who first performed at the November 3rd Demonstration on Boston Common and has since played shows at the Middle East, the Cambridge YWCA, the Mugar Center for the Performing Arts, and the Crossroads Coffeehouse, is quickly gaining popularity among the anti-war, anarchist, radical labor, and general leftist populations of Boston.
Greer turned 18 years in May.
"Now I can actually play shows in those clubs legally," he laughed, referring to the numerous times that he'd been snuck into a club in order to play a show that he wasn't old enough to attend.
Greer says that the album reflects his own political changes.
"I like to call myself a recovering liberal," he says, "and some of the songs on the album that I wrote a while ago, last year say, are not as radical as some of my newer ones. But even in my more "liberally" songs there are undertones of my true radical self that were just waiting to come out."
Evan has a fairly free schedule for the summer and is currently looking for gigs. If you or your group would like to host a performance, or you are looking for performers for a protest event, please contact Evan:

Santa Fe Song (english)
24 Jun 2003
When I went to Santa Fe, I met a homeless man there named Tim. I walked up to him, not knowing him at all, and asked him where I could get something to eat cheap. He offered to give me a foodstamp.
I was awed by his selflessness and incredible unconditional love for a fellow human being. It made me truly think about what the heart of anarchy is really all about.
Here's the song.

remembrance #9 (english)
24 Jun 2003
i try to avoid being emo, but this is damn close. except that it's not about my girlfriend dumping me, it's about middle school. and how much it sucked.
okay, so that's not directly political, but bear with me. authoritarianism has a detrimental effect on children. it nearly killed me in middle school, when i completely lost any will to live. so there's a message in there somewhere... and there's a kick-ass guitar solo, so listen.
