Theater , Mutiny Information Cafe , and more – to take a stand for reproductive rights, and
create an event that’s as fun as it is effective!
Headlined by Church Fire , with direct support from post-punk gothic band Married a Dead
Man, rock-duo newcomers Hate Minor, and burlesque-troupe Rebel Girl Productions , this
show promises to deliver some serious punch, while raising some serious funds for a cause that every Denverite can get behind. We are thrilled to do our part to elevate female artistry as we work towards a better future for every woman; with each featured band boasting a strong female presence, from conceptualization to execution.
Music and activism go hand in hand, and BATB is proud to honor Denver’s strong tradition of conscientious songwriting and performance with an event designed to raise awareness and help embattled non-profits like Planned Parenthood to accomplish their missions. As we press into election season, we believe BATB’s goals will resonate with the Denver Music Scene, and help to inspire political activism from musicians and music-fans alike as we fight for what we believe in.Continue reading “CPRA Music News: Bands Against The Ban Announce Show At The Oriental In Support Of Planned Parenthood”
