Village Voice Union Benefit Tonight at Public Assembly

Tonight Public Assembly will play host to the Village Voice’s Union Benefit— a concert geared toward raising money in the event that they go on strike this weekend.  According to the Voice:

“We have a union at the Village Voice that’s been around since the ’70s. Our three-year contract is up at the end of the month, June 30. After decimating the staff, management is trying to slash our healthcare and retirement benefits. We’re really hoping that it doesn’t come to a strike, but there’s a distinct possibility.”

Things will kick off tonight at 8pm with Alan Watts, an industrially noisey darkwave crew out of Brooklyn.  Local “no goodniks” (as the Voice aptly donned them) K-Holes will play as well followed by the Free Williamsburg approved Fort Lean. Also there will be a special PitchforkReviewsReviews DJ set– a great show for a great cause!  Suggested donation at the door is $10 and you can also donate via pay pal.  Get our there and support writers and print media!
