EARLY ALERT: Tamms Year Ten Benefit Show August 12

Posted on July 24, 2012

Tamms Year Ten is a coalition of prisoners, ex-prisoners, families, attorneys and other concerned citizens who are working to permanently shut down Tamms supermax prison.  At Tamms, every man is held in permanent solitary confinement. The expected consequences of long-term isolation are observed at Tamms: men scream uncontrollably, compulsively attempt suicide, mutilate themselves and do other unspeakable acts. Please help us end psychological torture in Illinois.

Their benefit will be Sunday, August 12th, from 3:00pm – 6:00pm at Reggie’s, 2105 S. State St.  Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.  Info about the show and the place to buy tickets is right here: http://www.reggieslive.com/show/kool-a-d/.

The main act is Kool A.D. (of Das Racist), and he will be supported by Fat Tony, BBU, Tray & Puzzle, and Stacks. This is a highly diverse roster of both national and local rap/hip hop acts that are ready to rock the mic for a great cause.
