NC Music Love Army Big Band Show against HB2, benefitting Equality NC, LGBT Center of Raleigh, & Now Or Never NC
The NC Music Love Army was sparked when, late in June of 2013, Old Ceremony frontman Django Haskins posted a video of “We Are Not For Sale,” a straight ahead, sing-along protest song in direct reaction to countless pieces of immoral legislation being handed down by the Republican-led legislature of North Carolina. Inspired by Django’s song, Charlotte musician Jon Lindsay quickly penned, recorded and posted one of his own, “NC GOP You Don’t Know Me.” That same night, songwriter Caitlin Cary, agitated and inspired upon her return from that night’s Moral Monday rally in Raleigh, saw her friend Jon’s video. She placed a call to Jon, and within hours they had set in motion the plan for what would become the NC Music Love Army. What followed were choruses of “yes,” bridges of “how can I help?” and a songbook’s-worth of support and contributions from musicians and their fans from around the state. In the span of only a few weeks, the Love Army has come a very long way
