Fundraising music night for a future Anarchist Social Space to exist on Coast Salish Territory, Vancouver!!!

A night of music from ok Vancouver ok (acousmatic tape music/experimental pop pop), Lunch Lady (riot grrl feminist witches) and Spesh Pep (a blond, a brunette, and a redhead walk into a bar: that's them).

Expect an update on the space, updates on some local struggles, and paintings, patches, tshirts, and zines for sale/by donation. All proceeds will go towards the up-and-coming anarchist space.

This show will be over right at 10pm, latecomers beware!

Accessibility: The main space is wheelchair accessible, and the gender neutral bathrooms are both on the main floor, but they are small and may not accommodate all folks in wheelchairs. There are washrooms at nearby shops Starbucks and Our Town Coffee (open til 11pm), both of which are larger than Rhizome's.

The following audit of Rhizome Cafe was performed on June 29, 2011 by the Radical Access Mapping Project.

ANTI-OPPPRESSION: This is a pretty solid anti-oppression statement, and is a helpful read for all (here's a tidbit: We recognize that we live in a society full of power imbalances along lines of race, class, gender, sex, sexuality, age, physical ability, size and other diverse identities. Though these differences can feel intimidating, we also affirm that we share common experience that inspires us to fight these norms. As we work towards ending sexism (SMASHING PATRIARCHY) in our society, we feel it is essential to build community and experience each other in new ways, loving and supporting one another.) http://olyladiyfest.wordpress.com/anti-oppression-statement/
