This is my second post about The Concert in Support of Occupy Wall Street. The first post was here.
This post and the comments will focus on selecting venues for The Concert in Support of OWS. My thinking is that we should have a concert in each and every city/town/hamlet that is holding an OWS solidarity event.
Thus, we need to identify potential venues in each city. And we need your help!
New York is pretty easy because there are so many venues. I think many of them will be sympathetic to the cause and should agree to hold shows on one night or over a weekend. Also in NYC I believe CMJ is coming to town shortly so this idea could get legs pretty quickly and we might soon see a series of acts performing solidarity concerts at a number of different venues.
Nontheless, I will begin to list the venues here for New York as an example of the type of list I would like to generate for each city. If you could leave suggestions for venues, venue size, and contact information for the venue or promoter in the comments, then I will add it to the list in the main diary or in future posts. I will also add cities and towns as they become available or as you list them.

You get the idea. Post the info and I'll post it. I'll also begin adding more cities and towns.
