State Radio Returns To The Road; Launches 3rd Annual Holloween 5K
Starting October 29th, State Radio will be touring the east coast with special performances from Massachusetts to DC, encouraging social awareness within the local and global communities.
To kick things off, the band and their fans will walk the Northampton streets in costume. That is, before State Radio's Halloween show at the Calvin Theater, band members and hundreds of fans from throughout the Northeast will participate in the 3rd annual Calling All Crows’ Northampton Halloween 5K. This zany, fun run/walk -- in costume through the streets of Downtown Northampton, Massachusetts -- will help Calling All Crows raise funds to support 50 Afghan women with shelter and education for one year. For more information, please visit: http://callingallcrows.org/2011-nh5k/
Last week, State Radio shared a live performance video of their song, “State of Georgia.” The song is written about death row inmate, Troy Davis, set to be executed by the state of Georgia tomorrow, September 21st. Davis has been on death row for 18 years and has received three stays of execution, twice coming within 24 hours of his death, despite a strong claim of innocence that has never been heard in a court of law. Davis was convicted on the basis of witness testimony - 7 of the 9 original witnesses have since recanted or changed their testimony. Watch it above.
When State Radio rolls into your town this fall, be sure to stop by the Calling All Crows table to lend your voice to “Calling for Maternal Health” campaign, providing shelter for Afghan women.
And like every tour over the last three years, members of State Radio will join local fans at pre-show Calling All Crows service projects in select cities. Check CallingAllCrows.org for the more details.
