ASOBI SEKSU, NORTH HIGHLANDS, LITTLE,BIG, AND SARA BENINCASA PLAY FIFTH ANNUAL ROE ON THE ROCKS BENEFIT FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF NEW YORK CITY
Our Access to Basic Health Care Is Under Attack. We Have a Say.
Stand with Planned Parenthood and Fight Back.
New York, NY – This April 16th, 2012, at a time when our right to basic health care is under attack, New York dream pop band, Asobi Seksu, along with special guests North Highlands and Little,Big, will play the fifth annual Roe on the Rocks benefit concert at The Highline Ballroom. Award-winning comedian and writer, Sara Benincasa, will be the evening’s emcee. All proceeds from the event will go to Planned Parenthood of New York City.
The Roe on the Rocks concert is held every year to recognize Roe v Wade, the historic Supreme Court Case which 39 years ago confirmed women’s right to privacy and thus access to abortion services. The show couldn’t come at a more important time – amidst the worst attacks on not just reproductive rights but access to basic health care. Past acts have included Regina Spektor, Thao with The Get Down Stay Down, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and (others).
