    Music-Rebellion-Repression: An Evening of Insight & Music w/ Mat Callahan & Aaron Leonard

    7pm – 9pmWooden Shoe 704 South St

    Join us for an evening of presentation, song, and conversation. Author Mat Callahan will discuss his research and experience about the musical explosion of the sixties and the explosive politics that ignited it. From the Sons of Champlin to the Grateful Dead, from the Black Panthers to the Occupation of Alcatraz, Callahan offers a unique, front row seat at the forces seen and unseen that shaped the era. Then author Aaron Leonard -- drawing on unique material gained from Freedom of Information requests -- will head back to the 1940s-1950s, when artists Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, ‘Sis Cunningham, Josh White and other artists seen as partisans of the Communist Party confronted governmental authorities intent of making them renounce their politics or failing that, drive them from the public sphere. Musical savant Dennis O’Neil — steeped in music of both eras -- will frame the event with some of the best selections of both eras.
