Media Alert from the HONK! Festival Committee (www.honkfest.org):
This coming Friday October 10th, in the afternoon, activist brass bands from
around the country will descend on Downtown Crossing in Boston (meeting at 3
pm across from Macy's) for a "Day of Action" in the campaign to raise the
minimum wage. 
>From as far away as Seattle, Brooklyn and Montreal, these loud, colorful and
fun-filled bands will "HONK! for $15." They will use their powers of music
and spectacle to bring the national fight for a $15/hour minimum wage to the
doorsteps of local Boston establishments still refusing to pay their workers
a living wage, earn paid sick time, or form a union. Details and updates on
HONK!'s "Day of Action," part of the HONK! Festival weekend activities, can
be found specifically at http://honkfest.org/honkfor15/.
As of this writing, the HONK! bands participating in the "Day of Action"
are: Artesian Rumble Arkestra (from Olympia, WA), Chaotic Insurrection
Ensemble (from Montreal), Chaotic Noise Marching Corps (from Seattle, WA),
Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band (from Somerville, MA), Leftist
Marching Band (from Portsmouth, NH), and Rude Mechanical Orchestra
(Brooklyn, NY).
