Everything and the Kitchen Sink Grass-Roots-Rhythm-Rock-Chorus Part 2

It’s Feburary 21st and that means yet another Everything and the Kitchen Sink Grass-Roots-Rhythm –Rock-Chorus in support of Strummerfest.ca

Now if you haven’t heard the last show here’s what the big deal is about. Strummerfest: the music festival is coming to Toronto, Ontario and every December it’s hosted in Kitchener Ontario. That’s right this August Strummerfest comes to Toronto for the first time.

So what the hell is Strummerfest? Well is not just about the music. It never was. Their slogan is
“Music, Memory, and Charity.” This spells out their priorities in order from lowest to highest.
The charity we seek to express and support is prevention of suicide. Why? Because nothing is more contrary to the idea of life’s inherent value; and nothing is more terminally undermining of the optimistic hope and faith in humanity that Strummer valued and sought to express in his music. We really believe life matters. We really believe that suicide is an awful tragedy that needs to be stopped. We really mourn over every life lost, so needlessly wasted, and wish that we could have helped someone find the answers they need to hang on, because, as those of us who’ve been through depression, frustration and fear know, things will get better if you can hang on.”
