“THIS NIGHTMARE MUST END: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”
Such was the valiant proclamation of a sign hung above the merch table at the Echo last Friday night. The headliner that night was Shame, a band from London, and though the UK is undergoing its own political turmoil, it was the second band on the bill responsible for the messages of resistance. Egrets on Ergot invited the organization Refuse Fascism LA to table and pass out hand cards that night, having done so for several of their past shows. With the venue already steeped in punk rock aggression, what better time to recruit folks to stop fascism in its tracks.
