"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." -- Mohandas Ghandi

I say "Listen to Pete Seeger" because he says...
"Listen to David Rovics..." - Pete Seeger
David Rovics is a folksinger of the rabble-rousing variety. He has become something of a fixture in the North American protest scene, performing at demonstrations throughout the continent, including A20 (April 20th, 2002 anti-war protest in DC), A16 (April 16th, 2000 protest against the IMF/World Bank), the School of the Americas, as well as Prague, Quebec City and many others. David also performs regularly throughout North America, Europe and occasionally elsewhere at festivals, folk clubs, college campuses, and at conferences organized by groups such as SEAC, Veterans for Peace, the Green Party, Independent Progressive Politics Network, and many others. David has shared the stage with the likes of Pete Seeger, Michael Moore, Billy Bragg, Howard Zinn, John McCutcheon, and Ralph Nader. He is a regular guest on Democracy Now! as well as on other radio stations around the world, including BBC, and a community radio station near you.
"David Rovics is the musical version of Democracy
David sings original songs about the various struggles of the day, combining accomplished bluegrass-style flat-picking with incisive lyrics. His fifth CD, Living In These Times, was recorded in September, 2001, most of it done live at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, New York. It includes songs about the September 11th tragedy in New York City as well as many songs focusing on the evils of US foreign policy such as the sanctions and bombing of Iraq, songs about the media, shutting down international financial institutions, and songs promoting polyamory and strange bicycles.
"Rovics ... has his fist tight on the pulse of
intervention through music."
"David Rovics' music gives life and hope in the
struggle for peace and justice. He is an inspiration."
"Inspiring, and inspired... For anyone despairing of
finding the next generation, worry no more!"
I saw "AMEN!" to that. If you proclaim to be interested in social justice issues and don't know David Rovics, you no longer have an excuse. Check out his thoughts and music at www.DavidRovics.com now! This is just one example of his lyrics here:
From Kabul to Khartoum
In the beginning there was the Plan. And then came the Assumptions. And the Assumptions were without form. And the Plan was without substance. And darkness was upon the face of the Workers. And they spoke among themselves, saying, "It is a crock of shit and it stinks." And the Workers went unto their Supervisors and said, "It is a pail of dung, and we can't live with the smell." And the Supervisors went unto their Managers saying, "It is a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it." And the Managers went unto their Directors, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength." And the Directors spoke among themselves, saying to one another, "It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong." And the Directors went to the Vice Presidents saying unto them, "It promotes growth and it is very powerful." And the Vice Presidents went to the President saying unto him "This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the company with very powerful effects." And the President looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good. And the Plan became Policy. And this, my friends, is how shit happens.
