So, unless you have been living under a rock (and even then, I bet you would know), you are aware that our next President of the United States is Donald Trump. While I could say that most do not want him as our Leader, the electoral college certainly resulted in a different turn and I definitely have scrolled by my share of Facebook connections who also find this Election a terrific turning point.
Among millions of other concerned people of the nation, I am also appalled and still somewhat in disbelief that Mr. Trump is the best The USA could do for our President. A term that has become popular in the wake of this frightful Election is Love Trumps Hates, or, hash tagging #LoveTrumpsHate.
On January 14th here in Los Angeles, The Bootleg Theatre is proud to present (along with The LA Safety Coalition) Love Trumps Hate. This exciting charity event will benefit Planned Parenthood and The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). And, did I mention the stellar lineup of performances?
Silverlake favorites, Silversun Pickups, will be headlining the night with a full band acoustic set (and, having seen them perform acoustic, I can assure you you’ll be in for a real treat), as well as sets from YACHT, James Supercave, Nick Waterhouse (special 4 piece set), Bloodboy, Expo 86 and a DJ set from Grant Owens (of WFNM).
In addition to these fantastic musical acts, there will also be a silent auction with the opportunity to bid on items autographed by Fitz and The Tantrums, Leon Bridges, Young The Giant, Family of The Year, Mac DeMarco, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Angel Olsen, Børns, YACHT, Run River North, How to Dress Well, Counting Crows as well as a raffle for a gift card from Amoeba Music.
Together, we will stay strong and ensure our voices are heard as we make this unfathomable transition in Washington DC. Music is a mighty tool and brings us together! Get your tickets to Love Trumps Hate with Silversun Pickups, YACHT and more HERE before they sell out! xo
