Benjamin Gibbard is Throwing a Standing Rock Benefit Concert

ben gibbard is throwing a standing rock benefit concert at the showbox in seattle

Though our coverage is usually of dance music, we can’t pass up supporting local talent giving back. Benjamin Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service is standing up for what he, and many think is right. So he put together a benefit show.

The show will benefit Standing Rock and The Water Protector Legal Collective, and feature special guests Naomi Wachira and a reading by author Sherman Alexie. All proceeds will go to the Water Protector Legal Collective.

Benjamin said he arranged this benefit because he was appalled by Donald Trump’s executive order to reinstate construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline.

“I believe water is more precious than oil and thoroughly support the right of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to defend both their land and sovereign treaty rights. All proceeds from this show will go to the Water Protector Legal Collective who continue to provide legal support for Native activists and their allies throughout this ongoing fight for justice.”

The show will be at The Showbox in Seattle on March 5. This is an all ages show and tickets go on sale Wednesday, February 8 (TODAY) at 10 am. This is an amazing opportunity to see great talent while supporting a good cause. For more information about the the Water Protector Legal Collective, visit their website.
