I was home with my parents in New Jersey when I heard of the shooting at the nightclub in Florida. Hate, violence, and intolerance has always upset me, but I haven’t been this overwhelmed with sadness and disbelief in a long time. The victims were only trying to be themselves and be comfortable and safe in their surroundings. That safety was violated out of fear and with a gun.
I originally wanted to raise money for the victims and their families, but I knew the issue was bigger than this. I wrote “Not Myself” for the victims of this horrific event, but I chose to support the research and awareness work of Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund: a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.
In the memory of those trying to be safe and be themselves, I hope we can all come together to help prevent another massacre like this and end gun violence.
Louisville’s seven member rock symphony In Lightning is set to release their new album “In Joy”, and 91.9 WFPK Presents In Lightning Album Release Show at Headliners Music HallFriday, August 26th. As the band’s bassist and composer Ben Short says, “The record has moments of tension, angst, or melancholy, for the purpose of highlighting those magical musical moments that are energizing or inspiring! All in all, we are making fun, lively, positive sounding music.” Check out one of the album’s tracks: “Turn It Wild”.
Todd Snider demands you step up to the dance floor on his newest single, “The Funky Tomato,” our first look into his newest LP, Eastside Bulldog. Recalling classic dances like the shag, shake, shuffle, and the mash potato, one of Americana’s greatest lyricists has devised his own dance. Of course, this is Todd Snider we’re talking about, so it may be at least a bit unconventional, but absolutely fun.
