Femmes & Folx Benefit Show for Tijuana Refugees

If you’re like us, you love live music and poetry. You’re hungry for events that get you out of your cozy house and into a cozy bookstore where people of many walks of life gather. And you’re looking for ways to support the thousands of refugees seeking asylum at the US-Mexico border. Yes? No? Maybe? Read on!

Come out to Old Capitol Books with any of the supplies needed at the border (listed below) OR $10. Direct Action Monterey Network, Revolunas, and Watsonville Brown Berets will be traveling to Tijuana on December 15, loaded with supplies and volunteers. In times of humanitarian crisis, when government agencies fail to take action, the people step up. Come join us in strengthening the cause, enjoying an evening of music and community, and supporting the work of local musicians and artists!

Femmes & Folx is a series of music concerts intended to feature underrepresented performers, specifically women, trans folks, and people of color. Featuring bedrooms, Chelsea Riddle, River Navaille, La Sofa Queen, and Ángel Gonzalez!
