MLC Benefit! with Sammus, Pinkwash, Soul Glo, Likes
<<<SAMMUS>>>
SAMMUS (Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo) is an Ithaca-raised, Philadelphia-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University.  Known as much for her rousing stage presence as she is for her prowess as a beatmaker and lyricist, Sammus has spent the past several years cultivating a strong following of activists, hip hop heads, punks, and self-identified nerds and geeks, among others. As noted by the Los Angeles Times, Sammus has a gift for getting a message across. Having recently made her Don Giovanni debut (while remaining tied to NuBlack Music Group), she is poised to cement herself as an artist who consistently thinks outside boxes and dances across lines (and does other neat things with geometrical figures).

In addition to managing a full-time music career, Enongo has spent the past decade as an educator in both public-school contexts and at the college level. After graduating from Cornell University in 2008 with a double BA in Sociology and Science & Technology Studies, she was accepted into the national teaching program Teach for America and placed in Houston Texas, where she taught elementary math and science between 2008 to 2010. In the fall semester of 2011 she returned to Cornell as a PhD candidate to pursue an interest a wide array of sound studies topics, including sound and gaming as well as the identity politics of community studios. She has also taught courses at NYU in the Science, Technology, and Society Department within the Tandon School of Engineering. As an academic in training and very-vocal feminist, Enongo has produced articles for publications such as Bitch, For Harriet, Sounding Out!, and The Mary Sue related to issues of race, hip-hop, gaming, and feminism.

<<< PINKWASH >>>
PINKWASH is a heavy punk duo based out of West Philadelphia. After an EP and 7-inch released on Sister Polygon, their debut LP for Don Giovanni Records is out now. Splintered rhythms and ultra-loud riffs.

<<< SOUL GLO >>>
Soul Glo are a self described aggressive band from Philadelphia. Aggressive typifies their presence in multiple senses: their first release is an untitled 13track LP of sonically diverse exploration of all of the best themes of extreme music. Covering ground that journeys from hardcore punk to black metal with welcome experiences of powerviolence, screamo, and grindcore, the band applies aggression in a much more direct and urgent sense lyrically, describing the experience of the Black american, as their priority. Aggressive doesnt just apply to their open politics but also the ease with which the message spreads to the ears of anyone who daily walks with the burden of social other on their back. Its a replenishment of the bodys water in a drought, both revealing and satisfying a need for truth that one doesnt know they possess. In the same places they find inspiration, the members of Soul Glo see desperate need for change. They have little interest in simply providing the world with more color-by-numbers hardcore songs, and instead focus on the politics of identity and experience in an increasingly dystopian america.

ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE MASS LIBERATION CAMPAIGN

Reclaim Philadelphia's Mass Liberation Campaign (MLC) mobilizes formerly incarcerated citizens and those directly affected by incarceration to be leaders in the fight to end mass incarceration, with a vision of building issue-based campaigns that target unjust policing and carceral practices in Philadelphia. MLC believes that in order to fight mass incarceration, power must be returned to the people who have been stripped of it by systematic racism and violence. This base will not only develop into leaders within the movement but recruit, empower, and educate others to join the fight in ending the exploitation, oppression, and disenfranchisement of black and brown Philadelphians.

The MLC currently has the capacity to fund only one part-time formerly-incarcerated organizer. This benefit aims to raise funds for hiring additional paid MLC organizers, leadership training for MLC leaders, space for monthly meetings and regular trainings, public transportation and meeting refreshments, and materials for MLC campaigns.
