Contrary to their name, the Apathetix are actually very involved in several community based projects within the Las Vegas area, including Food Not Bombs, Las Vegas and Nevada Cop Block and also regular attendees at the Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe, from which both the latter projects derived. The members of Apathetix are also personal friends of mine and they happen to be a very kick ass band. Other songs by Apethetix can be found here, here, or here on SoundCloud or here on their lead singer’s Youtube channel. There’s also this video that I personally took during one of their shows at a local bar back in April.
If you have a video, personal story involving police misconduct and/or abuse, or commentary about a law enforcement related news story, we would be happy to have you submit it. You can find some advice on how to get your submission published on the CopBlock Network within this post.
IN A BAND?
Also, for any readers out there who are musicians or involved in the music industry on some level, we have a page here on CopBlock.org dedicated to like-minded people that make music.
As Pete Eyre has stated previously on that page:
In keeping with the decentralization so key to the free exchange of ideas – inform others about your band, your motivations and a track that you think especially relevant via the form at CopBlock.org/Submit
Related posts will be added to this page – CopBlock.org/Music – which seeks to be a go-to for musicians and bands of all stripes that share one commonality – the recognition that badges don’t grant extra rights.
A secondary goal for this page is that it may act as motivation for other musicians to become active in this conversation.
So send us your music and if it’s not shitty we’ll post it.
