It was an SRO night for the band TATHATA at Albuquerque's AirDance ArtSpace on March 4th, 2006. The 'House was Rocked for Civil Rights'. This wildly fun musicical extravaganza benefited the ACLU of New Mexico as well as the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice. Fun was had by all in a unique effort to support the ACLU's case representing Laura Berg, the VA Nurse accused of sedition following her writing a Letter to the Editor which was published by Albuquerque's ALIBI weekly.
Music by TATHATA and the LOST TRIBES OF MARDI GRAS (members of) plus a few guests including the NEW PATRIOTS, opened the show. Massage, face painting, amazing FRACTALS & projections by Jonathan Wolfe were also a highlight of the Event.
