BRM Presents: Get Up Stand Up - A Night of Activist Music

Get Up Stand Up | 8:30pm
+ Raga Jam Session | 9:30pm

This is a night to celebrate songs of activism, empowerment and protest. BRM takes no political stance, but we do stand up for basic human and civil rights. We stand for the celebration of diversity and bringing cultures together in music. We stand against any person or group who tries to impede these most fundamental truths. Performing songs from Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Buffy Saint-Marie and more original music. We hope you will stand and sing with us on January 18. A portion of the nights proceeds will go to the ACLU. Come ready to play your own favorite activist songs in the jam session following the featured act.
