Heads up to all involved - this is the preferred vehicle for money donation to OWS according to multiple OWS volunteers at Liberty Park.

The same volunteers have recommended receipts from tonight's show in Brooklyn be transferred to OWS via this method.

russ is right. this needs to go on page 1.

I've got a telecommuting show idea that Tourism has been kicking around. If you're doing a thing, we'd love to video in a collaborative performance with a like minded New York band. Can't make it out to NYC, but we would be down for doing something weird for it.

Absolutely. There's no need to physically be here. In fact, it's better we do it from
all different places across the country. Pretty much the way it should go.

I'm not going to speak for Jim 'Jam' Birch, but the streaming video feed he and Matt had up and running for Auktoberfyst seems like a smart way to do this between cities. We have an album titled VOX that is a community-based a Capella noise record. So far, Joe and I (Tourism) as well as Liz B. and Sowley have all contributed to the piece, and we are looking to find more folks to build it big and sing it loud.

I'll see Joe tomorrow and pow wow. Any idea of a timeframe?

That's perfect, kerble. I love it.

Re: timeframe: Marchish? Earlier if we need to. Let's figure it out. Figuring stuff out is easy.

Wait you think OWS will still be going on in March?! Through the winter at all for that matter?

I don't know, scott. My guess is it's not going to just go away. We'll figure it out. We're smart.

Scott's got a good point, Houlihan. Possibly a good reason to raise mopnies would be doing it earlier for winter provisions for protestors out on the street. I have a couple oddball cards I can pull. Will check in with them and see what can be done. Let's look into mid-late November as phase one. If they're still rolling through by the ides of march, we can double down.

Not disputing anyone's intelligence or ability to make shit happen. Just surprised at the timeframe. Thought you were gonna say a couple weeks from now. If this is still going in March I'll be very much surprised, I guess I don't have much faith in the attention span of people, generally. And there's the whole being outside in winter thing.

Shit dude, good luck. I know y'all can make it happen if there's still an occupation come springtime.

it would be rad to just do PRFBBQZucottiPark. Bring the spirit of the BBQ to them, with delicious food, excellent music, etc. i assume as it gets colder, pretty much anything that will draw people to/keep people in the park is going to be crucial.

i don't know the logistics involved. i know there is no amplification allowed at Zucotti. i assume motherfuckers can't just roll up with some grills and get grillin.

we could send people out to each one around the country. just decend on them like a swarm of insects. rock insects with delicious food.
Has anyone really been far as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

we could set up a series of acoustic shows. every friday night while this thing is happening. prf bands on tour could pop through (i'm just throwing things out there).

if there was a way we could broadcast performances in from across the country, that would be tits. project streaming video from wherever, mixed with some live shit. i don't know how we can reconcile that with no amplification. we need a nyc law savvy PRF'er STAT.

i guess my thought process is in the shorter term. the more i think about it, the more i am convinced that besides raising a bunch of cash, the best thing to do is to try and keep as many things happening at the park as possible. ESPECIALLY as it gets colder, we need to help this thing survive the winter if we want it to be around in march. we all stood outside in the subzero temperatures at secret project robot last year. lets get people to do the same at Zucotti.

There is a noise issue at the park. Sure Ryan's idea of keepin it acoustic helps. I'll chat with my legal savvy buddy tomorrow while we are there. He is a business rep for my union and has a pretty good head on his shoulders for this type of thing.

i don't think this is something a certain band member of mine would be completely behind, but i would love to participate somehow... someone hit me up if you're looking for a noise-making collaborator.

another question is: are projections legal? there is also the obvious issue of power. can you bring a gas generator into the park? any friendly businesses in the area we can run extension cords across lower manhattan from? I'm guessing what we do is going to be pretty much determined by what we CAN do.

I have a projector I can donate, nothing special, but nothing I would feel too bad about losing to the NYPD.

I first read the topic as:
Let's put on a PRF show that OWNS.

I was like, we already did that a bunch of times, brah.

I don't know why I think this, but I feel like deep.btuz could come in here and tell us all the reasons we can't do various things at the park.

c'mon butz, earn your redwings!

Nah... this kind of thing just isn't his scene. when he decides to talk about this stuff he often takes a nigh-libertarian, devil's-advocate kind of position (which can keep me on my toes)...
