Musicians for Civil Liberties Benefit Concert for ACLU/NYCLU Set for 9/24

Table Pounding Music is proud to present a benefit concert for the New York Civil Liberties Union/American Civil Liberties Union, produced by Grammy-nominated clarinetist David Krakauer, pianist-composer Kathleen Tagg and Table Pounding Music on Sunday, September 24th at 7pm.

Abraham Inc. is co-led by David Krakauer, Fred Wesley (of James Brown/Parliament Funkadelic fame) and Montreal based producer and beat architect Socalled. They will be joined by an all-star group of boundary-pushing musicians who share two common traits: a quest for pushing outside the box in their genres, and a desire to use their artistic voices to raise funds for the protection of civil liberties. One hundred percent of the artist fees will be donated to the ACLU.

This is the second ALCU benefit concert Table Pounding Music has produced. In April, the highly attended concert raised a significant amount of money and created a tremendous presence online. Selection of tracks will be available to download for purchase and these revenues will also benefit the ACLU.
