The National, Ted Leo and Sleater-Kinney to Perform at Women’s March After-Party
A day after the inauguration of Donald Trump, a march in support of women's rights will take place in Washington, D.C. That evening (Jan. 21), a concert will take place at the city's 9:30 Club, and will feature music from, among others, Sleater-Kinney, the National, and Ted Leo.
Called "Laugh. Dance... Then Get to Work!," it will be presented by Funny or Die and the 9:30 Club, and will benefit Planned Parenthood. The Women's March is an organized response to the perceived threat of a Trump presidency to human rights, and more specifically women's rights. There will be similar marches in 370 cities throughout the world.
In addition to the music, comedians Tig Notaro and Janeane Garofalo will also perform, and U.S. Senators Al Franken and Cory Booker will make appearances. Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens), Samantha Ronson, Sam Harris (X Ambassadors), Casey Wilson, June Diane Raphael, Morgan Walsh and Ronna & Beverly round out the rest of the bill.
Tickets for the concert, which cost $100, sold out quickly. However, the 9:30 Club has put 10 pairs of tickets up for auction through Charitybuzz. You can bid on them until Jan. 20 at noon.
The after-party will not be the only D.C. stop for the National, who will be appearing with Common at the 9:30 Club's pre-Inauguration concert, dubbed "Show Up: A Concert for Reproductive Health, Freedom & Justice," on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7:30PM. That show, which is free, will also be presented by Planned Parenthood and All Access.
