After the great debate we got going over getting people to take action and actually take a stand, it is awesome to see some artists banding together in DC for a late September rally against the war in Iraq. The Operation Ceasefire Concert is going to take place on September 24th as the centerpiece for the anti-war rally on the Washington Monument grounds. The concert is part of a three-day event put on by the organization United For Peace And Justice.
Artists confirmed to perform so far include Thievery Corporation, Ted Leo, Le Tigre, Bouncing Souls, Jello Biafra, Wayne Kramer of MC5, along with many others. To read more about the concert as well as the rally itself, here are a few links to check out:
