Fresh from 5 months of shows in the U.S. and Europe, Ryan will be sharing stories and perspectives from Occupy encampments around the country and their counterparts in Europe, and helping stir up energy for the Occupy movement's #Spring Offensive!

He is also touring to promote his new album Ordinary Heroes, a collaborative work with violinist/journalist/documentarian Michael Fox. The recording, dedicated to historian and activist Howard Zinn, emphasizes and celebrates social movements as a means of overcoming injustice.

Ryan has been writing and performing hard-hitting political folk songs for over ten years. A part of the Riot-Folk Collective, his music is aimed to support those working for positive change and to educate people about issues of peace and social & economic justice.


Ian Cooke (Denver)
& Shenandoah Davis (Seattle)
& Matador and friends (here, silly)
 Tuesday May 1st, 7pm
$3-5 (NOTAFLOF) 

From a facebook post:  What a treat! Shenandoah Davis and Ian Cooke are on tour together and are stopping in Santa Cruz so we can bask in their sweet sweet music. And what better way to celebrate May Day than by attending a show at SubRosa? It'll be a riot! I mean... a dance party. I mean...nevermind. Peep the deets:

Shenandoah Davis (Seattle)- Growing up immersed in classical music, Shenandoah Davis creates heartbreaking, spine-tingling compositions which seamlessly combine the romantic piano swells of Debussy or Chopin with contemporary influences such as Owen Pallett, Joanna Newsom, and Arthur Russell. It's good, check it out.

Ian Cooke (Denver)- A one-man chamber ensemble, Ian Cooke specialized in forlorn folk built on cello-heavy arrangements and vocals that mimic his instrument's mournful modulations. Kinda freaky, totally complex, you'll be bummed if you miss it.

Matador and friends (here, silly)- We'll be playing a bunch of things you've probably heard before. Maybe some you haven't? With a bunch of our friends.

As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
