Margaret Downey to speak at Rock Beyond Belief

Margaret Downey has had a prolific career in secular activism. She has founded, been a board member of, or presided over many of the most influential secular organizations.

Jeffrey Lewis – To Be Objectified

Last week, anti-folk hero Jeffrey Lewis announced his tentative appearance at Rock Beyond Belief. We are proud to have such a talented singer/songwriter come out and play a set for us. Maybe you haven't heard of him, or maybe you only heard of him via association with Kimya Dawson (the musician behind the Juno soundtrack, and half of the Moldy Peaches anti-folk band). His lyrics often function as 'the lead guitar' by virtue of importance.In the spirit of spreading secular music, or just good … [Read more...]
