From the inbox, a great event in NYC, hosted by Brownstar Revolution:


Featuring performances by:
DJ Rekha
The Kominas
Hari Kondabolu
Fair and Kind
Curated by: BROWNSTAR

11pm Saturday, August 14
Joe's Pub (425 Lafayette Street between East 4th Street and Astor Place), New York City

Commencing at 11 pm on Saturday, August 14 (Pakistan's Independence Day) and continuing into the early morning hours of August 15 (India's Independence Day), UNIFICATION 2010 celebrates 63 years of independence and the voices of talented, socially conscious South Asian/American artists. With performances by DJ Rekha, The Kominas, Hari Kondabolu, Fair and Kind, and others, UNIFICATION 2010 will explore the politics of our motherlands, reveal the experiences of being brown outside of it, and question the tensions between us, while fostering a movement towards a more peaceful, unified South Asia. Proceeds from UNIFICATION 2010 will support South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT).

Advanced tickets $20 @ www.joespub.com
Same day tickets $25 @ the door

Co-sponsored by:
Asian American Writers' Workshop
Indo-American Arts Council
Naan Sense Radio

If you are in NYC, you should go - say hi to the Kominas or, more appropriately, yell something obscene at them.
