we're open to everybody! 21.Jul.2004 22:19

except -- er -- not THOSE people!

Is this really for "everyone who opposes the Bush administration," or is this the usual "anarchists, Sierra Clubbers and political agnostics welcome; commies, socialists etc. stay the fuck home" kind of barely-hidden sectarianism?

Some of that looks promising, but I was dismayed to see this Total Liberation tour is also a straight edge/vegan hardcore tour. Sorry, hearing lots of tirades against drugs & drink sounds quite tedious. Will it be a diverse sampling of radical music or will it be something with the air of a religious revival?

And why hasn't the portland visit been mentioned anywhere other than word of mouth???
(if that is accurate anyway)
