Mutha Sheehan is going to hold an anti-war concert on the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.
The concert will be called, "Bring 'Em Home Now!" and will be held at the Hammerstein Ballrom in New York.
It will headline REM, and include Rufus Wainwright and Brighteyes, Steve Earle, Peaches, and Devendra Banhart. Also scheduled is Chuck Fischerspooner.
"It is impossible not react to the current state of affairs through personal action and artistic production," said Casey Spooner of Fischerspooner in a statement.
Sheehan expects that more bands will be added.
Yeah, right. The funniest thing about this is that every single performer she has booked right now are has-beens.
Guess the music industry DID learn something from the Dixie Chicks debacle. Not a single popular band will touch this!
Sheehan will follow the concert with a 15 stop speaking tour featuring her and a few other authors.
Look out, all you college kids!
