Night For Nate II
Sunday, August 19th, 2018
Please join us for the second annual A Night for Nate II, featuring music from Lansing's experimental rockers From Big Sur, Lansing power-pop veterans The Stick Arounds, as well as Wentworth and Dave, featuring Wally Pleasant, Lansing's longtime and much beloved singer-songwriter in a somewhat rare appearance! All proceeds will go directly to the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition! Last year, we raised a little over $1,000, and I hope we can match or exceed that amount this year. Suggested donation at the door is $10 dollars. The MDRC will also be on hand selling their "Feisty and Non-Compliant" t-shirts and other wares. This event is in honor of Nate Wardell who passed away in 2016 from complications related to his Spina Bifida and neglect from a local care facility. Nate was a huge fan of music, so this is the most fitting way I could think of to honor his memory. Based in East Lansing, the MDRC cultivates disability pride and strengthens the disability movement by recognizing disability as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity while collaborating to dismantle all forms of oppression.
