Party for a Media Revolution


The Twin Cities Daily Planet and KFAI Community Radio will host the Party for a Media Revolution on Thursday, June 5, 2008, the eve of the 2008 National Conference for Media Reform in Minneapolis.

The event, to be held at Trocaderos Night Club, will showcase some of the Twin Cities’ top musical talent, including the International Reggae All Stars, Cadillac Kolstad and the Flats, and the funky, political R&B of local legend Willie Murphy and the Angel Headed Hipsters. In the upstairs Acoustic Lounge, and between sets on the main stage, performers will include Dan Newton, Spider John Koerner, and more. All proceeds will benefit KFAI and the Twin Cities Daily Planet.

“It’s a great party for a great cause,” says KFAI Executive Director Janis Lane-Ewart. “Whether you’re passionate about seeing a more diverse and democratic media system or you just love a great party, come out and support our local independent media!”
