The pre-existing music/entertainment law is no good. It relies on a complicated permit process predicated on denial of application. It has not been enforced actively, and now that it is, businesses and the music
We seek to channel artistic expression and creativity into the Occupy Albany movement.
“For millenia the arts have functioned as an aesthetic, sometime surreptitious way to spread a movement’s message, challenge authority and promote social change. From government criticism and satire in Greek tragedies to the protest songs of the 1960s, from Picasso’s iconic antiwar painting “Guernica” to the underground artists and writers who inspired opposition to oppressive 20th-century regimes in South America, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia, the arts are an intrinsic part of anti-establishment movements.” – Steve Barnes
