Proceeds paying for the new improved KEPW signal now reaching throughout Eugene, Springfield and beyond.

Legendary folk musician Chico Schwall and two of Eugene hottest bands: “Soul Vibrator” and “Fortune’s Folly” will perform. The first 25 paying after doors open at 6 PM can choose a free unique t-shirt or button and bumper sticker from the Eugene PeaceWorks collection.

One of America’s most tireless and wide-ranging investigative journalists, David Barsamian has altered the independent media landscape, both with his weekly radio show Alternative Radio-now in its 32th year-and his books with Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Richard Wolff, Arundhati Roy and Edward Said. His forthcoming book with Noam Chomsky is Global Discontents: Conversations on the Rising Threats to Democracy.

Chico Schwall is a folksinger, multi-instrumentalist songwriter and union activist. “Soul Vibrator” plays a groovy fusion of funk-electronica, psychedelic, soul, reggae, rock and jazzy tunes! “Fortune’s Folly” keeps the dream of alt-rock alive with the warm and fuzzy (guitar) feeling of those mid-90s women fronted bands like “The Breeders” and “No Doubt.”
