My recent civic action has centered around TheArts@311, an artists collective that my friend Carl has started in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I am on the board so I get to sponsor shows like Jazz Thursday and the recent Keith Sykes show. These songs were recorded at Knock Off Friday, an acoustic/roots jam session we have each month.

Hairy Larry and George Live at TheArts@311

A Hairy Larry original, "Ride Me To Heaven" sandwiched between two classics from the sixties. Mike "Zif" Lovell on pedal steel, Hairy Larry acoustic guitar and vocals, George on bass and vocals with guest guitarists David Shade and Bluescaster, Paul Nunis. Video production by Mike Lovell, video post by Hairy Larry. This set was recorded on August 10, 2012, part of a roots/acoustic jam session at TheArts@311 in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Keith Sykes is an amazing performer, producer, and songwriter. He's so cool that he'll come and play in your living room. And at the end of his tour he was nice enough to stop in Jonesboro and play for us at TheArts@311. Here's a living room show he did.

Well it's not too protesty so far except for the Dylan and the Van but I'm gonna fix that now by pimping these diaries from the Protest Music Group. I mean this stuff is serious.

Springsteen, Pink Floyd, and Michael Jackson had more to do with tearing down the wall than Reagan

The 1% and the republican party have been declining for a long time!

For Rebel Songwriters: We Got the Shaft

If you are interested in joining Protest Music just send a request and I'll see you get an invitation.

I am also calling out all musicians on DailyKos to get in touch with me, whatever your favorite genre, we always like to feature kossacks on Protest Tuesday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
