Tune in to The Prison Music Project Sessions: Long Time Gone Album Release Concert featuring Ani DiFranco, Zoe Boekbinder, Terence Higgins, free feral, Launa Reed, and more streaming on LivexLive at 8pm Central on Friday, June 5th. The performance was filmed at Esplanade Studios in New Orleans before an invisible audience and will feature call-in readings by incarcerated poets and break-away videos of some of the Prison Music Project’s other contributing writers. Profits from this event will benefit Sister Hearts Re-entry Program in New Orleans and the Center for Life Without Parole Studies. The concert can be re-streamed immediately after the original airing and through June 7.
The virtual concert is part of the larger Prison Prism Radio Festival on Righteous Babe Radio, a week-long radio festival dedicated to discussions about our criminal justice system, broadcasting from June 1-5.
This free radio festival will explore the reality of our present criminal justice system and visions for alternatives. We will hear from incarcerated poets and lyricists offering their songs and stories and we will hear from some of the artists who helped bring those stories to life as part of the artist collective that created Long Time Gone.
