Rapper and activist Talib Kweli will join the Seattle stop of Rock Against the TPP, an upcoming protest tour looking to halt the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the trade deal that organizers -- including Tom Morello -- call the "biggest corporate power grab in history."
The free tour kicks off at Denver's Summit Music Hall on July 23 with a lineup that includes Morello, Anti-Flag, Downtown Boys, Taina Asili and others. The protest continues a week later (July 30) in San Diego with performances by Las Cafeteras, Bonfire Madigan and others. On Aug. 19, Kweli will headline at the Showbox SoDo in Seattle alongside Asili and Bell's Roar, and a day later the tour moves to Portland's Director Park with a headliner to be named soon. A fifth stop, planned for Sept. 24, is being ironed out.
