Occu-Party Concert Series

Liquid Blue intends to present an ongoing monthly concert series to benefit the OSD movement. These events will be held at various local venues and are intended to raise money to keep the movement financially stable. The goals of the OSD Concert series are:

1. To provide funding for OSD and its activities

2. To provide those who cannot "occupy" on a regular basis, a way to contribute to the cause and be part of it.

3. To provide information on the Occupy movement to the attendees and encourage their participation.

4. To showcase the most active and talented speakers from OSD.

5. To celebrate OSD's accomplishments in a safe, off-site location (away from the Civic Center).
