Dream Crusher leads Concert to Defeat the Marriage Amendment lineup
A stellar group of local musicians have put together a show at Hell's Kitchen on March 30 to help raise money and awareness for Minnesotans United For All Families, a wide-ranging alliance of community and business leaders throughout the state who are working to defeat an amendment on the ballot November 6 banning same-sex marriages in Minnesota.
The Concert to Defeat the Marriage Amendment lineup features Dream Crusher, the Bruce Springsteen cover band Tramps Like Us (comprised of members of Gospel Gossip), the Pinsch (a new group featuring members of Short Fuses, Divebomb Honey, and the Deaf), and Teenage Moods, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the $8 door charge going directly to the Minnesotans United coalition to further their significant cause.
The show promises a strong collection of local bands who are certainly doing their part to make sure their unified voices are heard loud and clear. And this will surely will be one of many events scheduled throughout the Twin Cities music scene to help rally support and understanding about what is truly at stake on Election Day. Hopefully, the open-minded music and arts community throughout the state rises up as one to help defeat this truly prejudicial, detrimental amendment.
If anything, you should go just to check out how exactly the sprawling Dream Crusher collective are going to try and fit on the small Hell's Kitchen stage, and to sing along loudly to the boisterous songs of Springsteen with Tramps Like Us (who seem to be contractually bound to play "Born To Run" given their band name, right?).
It should prove to be a exhilarating, enlightening evening filled with spirited music, both new and old, and all for a good cause as well. For more information on the bands, the concert, and the cause, here's a link to the event's Facebook page.
