No DAPL Benefit starring Ethan Daniel Davidson

Americans have this great way of glossing over the systematic mistreatment of American Indians that’s been going on for, you know, like 400 years. But, thanks to a corrupt government that’s overrun with corporate greed and special interests, we’ve been hearing a little bit more about this consistently marginalized minority group. The proposed Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock has caused warranted outrage among tribe members and people everywhere who have a shred of human decency. Even though there has been a temporary halt to the pipeline expansion, the UFO Factory will still hold a concert and art show to send cash to the Sioux. Kathy Leisen from Soft Location will open the show with lyrically challenging singer-songwriter piano-based jams that will haunt your brain in the best way. Warren Defever from His Name Is Alive will play a rare solo set, which means you have no idea whether he’ll zone out entirely or play song-based stuff. It’s all headlined by singer-songwriter Ethan Daniel Davidson, whose recently recorded album of deft and experimental Americana is nothing short of splendid.
