Fiery Furnaces at Jelly NYC, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Leave it to the Friedlanders to call their shows anything but a rock show, and all for the good of the people. They are anything but conventional, after all.  This month, The Fiery Furnaces will be “re-branding” all of their shows as Pro-Health Care Reform rallies.  More information about why they’re doing this can be found on their website here:

The band insists that now is the time to act and to show the Right Wing conservatives that “Obama Fans” and “young people” haven’t stopped paying attention to politics now that the election has long passed.  The Fiery Furnaces are using their upcoming shows as a platform to try to get other musicians, music fans and media to make a stance, but they need a little help spreading the word.  So please do!
