Inauguration Day Punk Show

In the new Mr President's inaugural address today, he laid the wood to the Bushies' wild transgressions in a call for Direct Action to reclaim our cultural legitimacy. Here is bit what he said:
As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our Founding Fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake. And so to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman, and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and that we are ready to lead once more.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Alright, the fervor is not exactly revolutionary and it remains a constant that Talk minus Action equals Zero, Mr. President. So what can you, dear reader do for your country? Don't ask -- just continue the diatribe and rouse the rabble a bit tonight. If in New York City take your dazzle to the show at The Market Hotel. Some of our favs, Fucked Up and 80's Hardcore will be pushing buttons and throwing sticks in cages and since we've turned the corner to a new era of inclusiveness Pissed Jeans and Vivian Girls will surely be lovely as well.

It's a punk show and politics should be favored over trendy tattoos (fingers crossed) but regardless come out and Make This Scene Mean Something - it's the American Way.
