Doing it for Dave: A Tribute to Dave Franklin @ Asbury Park Convention Hall | Asbury Park | New Jersey | United States

Last month, we lost Dave Franklin, the lead singer of the band Vision. The impact that was felt across generations of the hardcore scene was unmeasurable, and he is truly missed. Below is the announcement

Friends…This is the OFFICIAL announcement for the Dave Franklin Tribute Show at the Asbury Park Convention Hall on April 2. Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster at 10:00am TODAY, February 10 (see link on this flyer). Please note that the ticket price for this amazing bill is only $25, and proceeds will benefit two organizations that Dave would have strongly supported – the North Shore Animal League and the Riot Fest Foundation. There will also be a fantastic afterparty/show featuring World Inferno/Friendship Society and Hub City Stompers, with more details provided soon. PLEASE REPOST/SHARE this announcement far and wide! Do it for Dave and come out with us to memorialize him in a way he would truly love on April 2!!’

– Go to this event because it’s the best way for friends to honor the memory of Dave
– Go to this event because proceeds go to GREAT charitable organizations
– Go to this event because the roster of bands playing/showing love to Dave is pretty insane
– Just GO for these reasons and many more!

Now in its 13th year, Left Forum has grown into one the largest annual convergences of the left.

In 2016, over 4000 people – including artists, activists, and great thinkers from around the globe – were drawn to NYC to engage in critical discussions and debates, build coalititions, socialize with new friends and long-time allies, learn, reflect, and strategize for a new future.

Building our collective strength as a movement and as a community committed to social justice is more important than ever. Join us for Left Forum 2017

Allied Media Projects defines media-based organizing as any collaborative process that uses media, art, or technology to address the roots of problems and advances holistic solutions towards a more just and creative world.

The Allied Media Conference is a collaboratively designed event. Conference content is curated with care every year by 100+ volunteer coordinators of tracks, practice spaces, and network gatherings. The conference features over 300 hands-on workshops, panels, film screenings, Detroit tours, art and music events, strategy sessions, karaoke, bowling, collaborative art and more!
