Kicking off the "No Soy El Army" Peace Tour, a number of hip hop artists will Drop Beats Not Bombs on Aug. 26 at Rotture, 315 SE 3rd Ave. in Portland.
Performing will be 2MEX, Mic Crenshaw, Serge Severe, Rose Bent, M4 and the Ubuntu Project.
The show will benefit the Portland Central America Solidarity Committee.
Organizers describe the focus of "No Soy El Army" as such:
"You are invited to attend a stop on the 'No Soy El Army' Tour this Fall in Oregon to, open a dialogue between the traditional peace community and Spanish-speaking and Latino communities about war, peace, racism and liberation in our own towns. As the wars abroad continue and the attacks on the immigrant community increase in brutality and viciousness, this tour is an opportunity to connect these two kinds of wars, interweave them with the reality of the economic crisis and bring a new perspective on peace to your communities."
Doors open at 9 p.m. for the 21+ show. Cover charge is $8.
