  • The Gatehouse Well plays the I Block Party on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 3 around noon.

It's the 33rd annual I Street Block Party in Arcata, with all proceeds from the event going toward our sister city of Camoapa, Nicaragua. With all of the fierce government-led violence and oppression going down in Nicaragua recently I am certain that this is an excellent time to show some support and solidary. It's a free event kicking off around noon and will feature lots of live music from local acts The Gatehouse Well, Kingfoot, Motherlode and The Latin Peppers. This is also one of our most important holidays as Americans, when we celebrate the progress and achievements of workers and social movements here and around the world. To quote The Internationale, "You have nothing if you have no rights." Never forget the multitudes who bled and fell in the name of labor and human rights — they are by far the largest casualty count in human history.
