H2O and Hostage Calm will be performing at a rally in in support of same sex marriage in New Jersey. The event will take place February 25th at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey and is free to the public. Hostage Calm vocalist, Cmar, released the following letter regarding the rally:
Across this country, I've seen crowded rooms of anxious people ready to participate, ready to express themselves, ready to engage. It seems like all of us are always ready to be heard, but this world is so rarely prepared to hear us. Yet every once and a while, a clear opportunity arises. Marriage Equality is a defining social issue of our time, and it is being decided--for good--right now. We need to channel the enthusiasm and the commitment to justice that lies dormant in underground music and use it to bring real change to America.
The letter can be read in it's entirety via Hostage Calm's tumblr.
The rally is in support of a bill that will legalize gay marriage in New Jersey. Governor Chris Christie says he plans to veto the bill as soon as it reaches his desk.
