While Washington DC and the Republican Party are in the final planning phases of their traditional inauguration for Donald Trump, the DC indie music community is taking on the task of putting together an event to show their displeasure with our newly elected President.
As Consequence of Sound reports, these Anti-Inaugural concerts will take place in and around DC at some of the areas most storied music venues. Artists as diverse as Sonic Youth, Common, The National and Solange will play at various organized events at 930 Club, The Rock N Roll Hotel, Songbyrd Music House and Comet Ping Pong. One of the more interesting events will be take place at the 16th Street House, a historic DIY punk rock room that’s hosted thousands of concerts over the years. The 16th Street show will be a four day long event with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood and various other local charities.
While the Trump Inauguration committee has been hard pressed to find relevant acts to perform for the President-Elect (Lee Greenwood anyone?), the Anti-Inauguration bill is gearing up to be an absolute jam packed bill, featuring the who’s who of the underground and indie music scene.
