Show Preview - Anti-Flag - 11.26.11 - Mr Smalls - Pittsburgh - Concert Preview

Anti-Flag will be making a last minute stop this Thanksgiving weekend at Mr Smalls on Saturday, 11.26. It's the first appearance for the hometown heroes in over 7 months. In honor of the holiday, if you bring a non perishable food item (which will be donated to the Pgh Food Bank) you will receive a special gift from the band. Here is Chris talking about the upcoming show:

Also appearing on this special bill are Cancer Bats (Canucks), The Menzingers, The Holy Mess (Philly) and Mace Ballard. As you are probably aware Anti-Flag are politically active on many fronts including the recent  Occupy Wall Street movement. This is what they had to say:

It has almost been a month since protesters fed up with corporatism first began occupying Zuccotti Park in the financial district of New York City. While many have extended their support to the people there, just as many have expressed their regret that they could not help in the occupation more directly. October 15th (today) marks a special day, in that thousands (perhaps millions) of people in nearly 1000 cities worldwide are planning similar occupations.On October 15th, Occupy Wall Street will demonstrate in concert over 951 cities in 82 countries and counting as people around the globe protest in an international day of solidarity against the greed and corruption of the 1%.

Tickets to the show are $15 and can be found here through Opus One. There is also a special ticket/poster bundle for $25 that can be found here.
