HEaRD in WNY: Shows for Oct. 5 - 11

This week's featured show is Sunday's "Food Not Bombs" Concert & Vegan Food Drive.

Food Not Bombs shares food as a form of political protest. Sharing food in a public place draws attention to the fact that society fails to provide food and housing for all people, while hundreds of billions of dollars are given to fund wars and state violence.

There is enough food to go around: all the fresh produce, grains, and beans that Food Not Bombs uses would have otherwise gone to waste. Worldwide, roughly one third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted.

There are hundreds of Food Not Bombs groups throughout the world. Each group is autonomous but they share the same core beliefs: cooking without animal products, a consensus decision-making process, and nonviolence.

On October 8th, the legendary Mohawk Place comes alive starting at 2:00pm for a community fundraiser to donate to this great organization's Buffalo chapter! Local bands Buried Beneath Concrete, Kennedy Carpool, Crystal Godzilla, Cardboard Homestead, The Impurity, Arcadia, The Finality Complex, Jaynie Crash & The Tall Men, Crooked Gener8ion, Third Realm, & Super-Tugger will all be taking the stage while Arrow Fitzbiggon, Brianna Battista, & Cat McCarthy will be providing various other entertainment throughout the day as well! Only a $7 donation is asked for at entry, or $5 with a food drive donation!
