Joan Baez to Perform at #OWS for Veteran’s Day

They must really want to clear the park.

Her politics are bad. Her singing is awful. There’s not enough pot at Camp Poopstock to make Baez sound good.

Warbler Joan Baez is going to perform at the Occupy Wall Street squatters camp for Veteran’s Day.
The New York Daily News reported:

Legendary 1960s protest singer Joan Baez will headline an Occupy Wall Street rally Friday.

“It’s official. Joan Baez will be here tomorrow,” said organizer Aaron Black. “She’s an icon. We are unbelievably excited. In the ‘60s, protests and music went hand and hand.”

The “11/11/11” Veterans Day Rally will be held at at Foley Square from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The slogan for the day: “Honor the Dead, Fight Like Hell For the Living.”

Ignoring the weekday timeslot and the short notice, Black said he expects big crowds – possibly tens of thousands of people.

“It’s going to be our biggest gathering yet. The whole world is watching now,” he said.

“It’s going to be an unbelievable celebration of music and culture.”

Baez, born a New Yorker, is an icon of the 1960s who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Cesar Chavez, dated Bob Dylan and Steve Jobs, and sang about civil rights, human rights and the Vietnam War.
