On Saturday February 3rd, at 7pm, at the Art In on East Washington Avenue in Madison Wisconsin, the Free The 350 Bail Fund held its first ever benefit concert. It was a huge success! $965 was raised by attendees who donated $10 each to the bail fund, despite the concert being held in the middle of one of the cities biggest snow storms this season. Fun was had, bars were dropped, bass lines were felt by all and abolitionist messages were spread.
Big shout out to DJ/Producer, Matt Cousin, who’s impromptu donation of time and dj abilities was a much needed reprieve for the over worked performance director and sound person, lil guillotine and president long boi, respectively. The emcee and performer, The Profit aka John Denver, tore up the mic and threw down bars like lead anvils, respectively.
Huge shout out to our starring performers, Dequadray, TG, Rambunxious, Willie Wright, Tha Catalyst, Evaridae, Hanks and Kilo! If you haven’t checked out, subscribed, followed, shared and liked their social medias you should definitely click the links in each of their names and do that now, these are great talented Madison artists who just threw down for the cause and deserve mad props!
