You might have seen the various press announcements about our upcoming Rock the Net CD, which features Wilco, Aimee Mann, Bright Eyes, Portastatic, They Might Be Giants, DJ Spooky and more. The disc comes out on July 29 on Thirsty Ear Records.
DJ Spooky, who donated the track "Uganda" to the compilation, is playing a show on June 8 in New York City as part of the nationwide Loving Day events. The free, all-ages concert celebrates the 41st anniversary of Loving v. Virginia — the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized interracial relationships in the United States. To RSVP, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spooky also wanted to use the occasion to raise awareness about net neutrality, so he's offered to make available Rock the Net materials to concertgoers. We thought it was a fine idea.
Here are the details, which you can also find at the Loving Day website:
