I posted a little while back about Feral Conservatives’ gorgeous track on the Friends for Equality compilation, which benefited the Southern Poverty Law Center, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. I wanted to give the cause another quick signal boost, as a Friends for Equality benefit show is being held tonight at Strange Matter.
You’ll find a number of details on the flyer above (music starts at 8, $5-20 suggested donation), as well as the lineup, which includes those very same Feral Conservatives. This time, funds are being raised for Forward Together (“Our mission is to ensure that women, youth and families have the power and resources they need to reach their full potential.”) and SisterSong (“Sistersong’s mission is to strengthen and amplify the collective voices of indigenous women and women of color to achieve reproductive justice by eradicating reproductive oppression and securing human rights.”).
Doors are at 7, but you can start prepping now by clicking play on the 15-minute journey RAIC calls “Penance.”

I know I’m late to the Giving Tuesday party, but it’s not too late to support three great organizations (the Southern Poverty Law Center, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood) via the 42-track Friends for Equality compilation.
This got on my radar thanks to Feral Conservatives’ inclusion, and wow is the track they contributed a winner. “Captivated” is a beautifully harmonized piano ballad about striking out into the great unknown, and the massive size of the song’s sound wonderfully reflects the abyss that lies over an uncertain horizon. Best of all, the lyrics leave lots of room to pour your own experiences in. I’m guessing that, whatever you’re longing for in the near or distant future, “Captivated” will offer a few minutes of inspired reflection, if not some outright motivation.
And that’s just one of the songs on the Friends for Equality comp. 42 previously unreleased tracks for $5, man. Pretty amazing. Click here to check the rest out and make your contribution.
