Launchpad (618 Central SW) provides a super-cool way to combine political engagement with live, aural activity on Thursday, May 11, when the venue hosts a fundraiser for local K-12 arts education programs. As you may know, La Tejana recently shot down a balanced budget proposed by our state’s legislative body, in the process vetoing many bills that would fund K-12 education efforts. A special session will be needed to sort out our state’s budget and commitment to public education, so it’s no wonder local individuals and businesses are looking into alternative funding. Listeners with a progressive bent can get in on the action by attending a concert that includes local luminaries like space jazzmen Pink Freud and poptastic punk rock purveyors Full Speed Veronica (Malcolm June, Matt Worley and Sarah Meadows). Roadside Dwellers and Quietly Kept open the foray into fine arts funding. Contributing to this worthy cause will only cost a Lincoln. Doors are at 8pm for this 21+ educational event.
