NYCLU
Gimme Tinnitus has been a great booster of the local NYC/Brooklyn music scene for many years. And now, along with Mirror Universe Tapes, they’ve put together a mixtape featuring a slew of great artists, all to benefit the NYCLU. Among those artists are two that recently stopped by BTR for studio sessions, so we’ll hear from them as well as a lot of other artists playing in the NYC area in the latter part of July and the first days of August.
Brandon Holmes of the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) joins the show to discuss the recent proposal to close Rikers Island, difficulties surrounding its closure, New York residents concerns, and de-carceration.
We’ve got a lot of music in this episode… We’ll hear tunes by She Keeps Bees and New Myths, who are playing a benefit show for Planned Parenthood, as well as a song by Dumb Wolves, who are playing Thursdays For The Cause, in support of Our Revolution, at Our Wicked Lady. After that, it’s another group of songs from the King Pizza Records universe, with tracks by The Rizzos and a new one by The Mad Doctors. Then we have great stuff from Allah-Las, Sneaks, Office Culture, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Fred Thomas, Mount Sharp, and Pavo Pavo.
