Showing your solidarity with everyone protesting at Standing Rock is as easy as heading to the Launchpad this Friday, Oct. 21. The doors of the storied venue swing open at 8pm; soon after the likes of Definition Rare, Innastate, Clara Natonabah and The Riddims, along with other performers and speakers will take the stage. All the cash garnered will go to the Red Owl Legal Collective—a legal defense fund for those arrested while protecting our water. $5 is the ticketed price, but bring more cash to donate if you have it.
