    CD Release Concert A Call to Unite Mike Stout and the Human Union 7:30 PM Sunday October 7, 2012 Frick Fine Arts Auditorium Frick Fine Arts Building Schenely Drive in Oakland by the Carnegie Library Pittsburgh, Pa. Mike Stout will release his 13th CD entitled "A Call To Action" in October. The CD highlights the environmental and economic struggles of our day with rousing new songs. The rock anthems Stop the Frack Attack and In Your Face call on citizens to join the environmental justice and anti-fracking movements spreading across Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia. We Will Occupy. is Stout's salute to the anti-capitalist/big bank movement. Mike continues his tradition of honoring the forgotten heroes of both past and present who struggled and sacrificed for workplace safety, health, and economic justice. In the song The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire he honors the women and men whose tragic deaths led to worker safety laws that we take for granted today. Mike calls attention to the need to continue the fight to protect workers around the world in his song We Came to Work Not To Die. Both songs inspire with feet stomping beats. Mike honors the working class heroes Woody Guthrie in America’s Favorite Son (ode to Woody Guthrie) and in the song Old Warrior he pays tribute to Youngstown writer and activist, Staughton Lynd. He remembers Frankie Domagala in song as one of the many unsung union activists at the Homestead Steel Mill and Local 1397 during the heyday of the plant shutdown struggle in the 1970’s and 80’s. We Are Alive, is Mike's ode to the courageous citizens who fought the shutdown of Braddock Hospital. To support Pittsburgh’s progressive movements, Mike will donate the proceeds of his CD Release Party to the Thomas Merton Center and PUSH (Pennsylvanians United For Single-Payer Healthcare. As he’s stated on numerous occasions, “the kind of ‘change’ I’m interested in ain’t coins or money, but social movements.” For more information or ticket reservations for his October 7th Concert at the Frick Fine Arts Auditorium in Oakland, 650 Schenley Avenue, contact: The Thomas Merton Center, 412-361-3022. Suggested donation $15 or $10 Low Income Funds raised benefit the TMC & Pennsylvanians United for Single Payer Healthcare
