Support Planned Parenthood by Seeing No Rey Sunday at the Sunset

Perhaps the two most undeserving targets of budget hawks during the Great Recession have been schoolteachers and Planned Parenthood. In the minds of conservatives, teachers somehow went from being chronically underpaid and overworked to unreasonably entrenched layabouts, and all the work Planned Parenthood does to assist women and families got reduced to one word: abortion. And not just legal abortion, but supposed misappropriation of taxpayer funds for the act, which led the Pinksploitation gurus at the Komen Foundation to cease contributing to PP until an overwhelming chorus of naysayers swiftly convinced them of the extreme err of their ways.

As long as the radical right holds sway in Congress, PP will likely remain under siege. So they need your help, now more than ever. And can you think of an easier way to lend your support than forking over a modest $6 to hear No Rey rock the Sunset on Sunday night?

Every penny of your $6 admission will go into the coffers of PP's Northwest chapter, which released a benefit compilation CD in November featuring the likes of Star Anna, Choklate, RA Scion, No Rey, Sweet Secrets, and the Volcano Diary (the latter two will join No Rey on Sunday's bill).

But ultimately, any concert flying the "Sex Positive" flag should be sexy. And No Rey is definitely that. Per our preview of their recent Rendezvous gig: "If No Rey existed in Malibu in the '70s, they'd have been the house band at Margot Kidder's pad, covering 'Pusherman' every time Jack Nicholson or James Taylor showed up with a few grams, and passing out on shag carpets and chaise lounges at the end of the night (or morning)."
