Strike Debt

Telethons, as grand as their causes often are, have a justly earned reputation as endlessly boring televised sadness-holes. But an upcoming web-based telethon from Strike Debt, an Occupy Movement-affiliated nonprofit that works against soul-crushing personal debt, aims to change that. On 11/15, the organization will throw the People’s Bailout, a fundraising event at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge, and a whole lot of music and comedy luminaries have signed on to appear.

The event’s list of performers includes Neutral Milk Hotel demi-god Jeff Mangum, Fugazi’s Guy Piccioto, TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo, Janeane Garofalo, Max Silvestri, Hari Kondabolu, and a whole mess of others. It will start livestreaming at this site at 8PM. More info here.
