A benefit concert supporting Family Resources and victims of sexual violence will be held on Friday, July 9, 2021 from 5-10pm at the Whiskey Stop in East Moline. Conceived by a collective of creatives and local musicians, the concert features live performances on two stages by six bands of diverse genres: Murnau, the Ross Clowser Trio, Mirabilia, Yung Flvy, BN WholAM (featuring Crealot & K1ng Supr3m3) and Alyx Rush.

There is no set ticket price, although admission does require a donation made either online or at the door.

Listen to the conversation here with activist Moselle Singh about the impetus behind the formation of the Solidarity Collaboration, her belief that all people should be able to listen to music safely, and how as a community we can strive to make our entertainment spaces safer.

Trained as an ethnobotanist, Moselle Singh is an artist born and raised in the Quad Cities. She has spent the majority of her life involved in regenerative ecology, addressing the exploitation pervasive in the ways in which humans relate to the land. You can view some of her art on Instagram.

River Music Experience, the Whiskey Stop, and Family Resources have joined forces with the Solidarity Collaboration and WVIK to envision the Quad Cities as a place where all people thrive in mutual protection and respect.

The Whiskey Stop is located at 726 15th Avenue in East Moline, IL and is part of the Rust Belt complex.

Carolyn Martin joined WVIK as a host of Talking Art in September of 2017. A long-time fan of NPR programming with a love of storytelling and all art forms, she is thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with creative people about their work in the Quad Cities region.
