Hey there,
Please mark the dates, May 6th & 7th 2017 will be the 39th Annual Human Rights Festival. Also Friday Oct 21st will be our first fundraiser for the festival. It will be at Terrapin Beer Company. I’m looking for a band with a PA system to play that night. Please contact me ASAP if you are interested.
