Titus Andronicus and Ted Leo Announce Last-Minute OWS Benefit

Jersey punks Titus Andronicus and Ted Leo, along with Brooklyn punks The So So Glos, have announced a last-minute benefit concert for Occupy Wall Streets' legal defense at the Brooklyn venue Shea Stadium.

Organizers say all the proceeds for Monday's event will go to the National Lawyer's Guild, which is working on behalf of protesters who have been arrested.

Tickets are $15 and will only be available at the Main Drag Bushwick Supply Annex, which is at 285 Meserole St. Tickets go on sale at noon and will not be available at the door.

As is their fashion, Leo and Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles have posted essays about the recent arrests of Occupy Wall Street protesters and why they are organizing the concert. As is Stickles fashion, his entry is long, impassioned and filled with phrases like the following: 

"Because real, sustainable change will only ever begin at home, amongst communities of people who know each other, who trust each other, and who love each other. I like the people who keep, say, the Music Hall of Williamsburg open for business -- I like them very much -- but I do not love them. They are friends, for sure, but real change must be made with family."

As always, you can read NBC New York's continuing coverage of the Occupy movement here.
