NOISE FOR NOW is a national initiative that enables performers to connect with, and financially support, grassroots organizations that are dedicated to empowering women and protecting women's health and abortion rights. NOISE FOR NOW is the link between touring musicians, progressive promoters, and local feminist organizations in cities across the country.  

Santa Fe NOW Action Network undertakes charitable work in areas of specific urgency to women in New Mexico, such as reproductive justice, human trafficking, wage equity, immigration, gender identity, domestic and sexual violence, and marriage equality. Additionally, SF NOW Action Network supports organizations that provide vital financial assistance for non-medical expenses like transportation, food, and childcare for low-income women who need to access abortion in New Mexico. 

St. Vincent's latest album, MASSEDUCTION, is a bold, emotional reckoning largely themed around power. Or as Annie Clark specifies, "All the forces that can swallow you whole." 

The album comes at a pivotal point in her life. Clark's last album, St. Vincent, won her breakout acclaim plus performances on the season finale of SNL and with a reconstituted Nirvana for their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The album landed on several album-of-the-year lists (among them, Pitchfork, New York Times, and Rolling Stone), culminating in Clark's first Grammy nomination and win for Best Alternative Music Album. Around the same time her personal life was thrust into tabloids. The mass seduction she writes of includes notoriety and beauty, but it also basks in intoxicating distractions such as pills, sex, and sorrow.

MASSEDUCTION is, most accurately, a mosaic of Clark's experiences. "I have all this source material, because I never really stop writing," she says. "With this record, I had years' worth of notes and voice memos that I'd collected on the road. 'Here's this melody from Amsterdam.' 'Here's this lyric from Latvia,' and so on."

Turning that source material into MASSEDUCTION required monastic discipline. "For months, until I finished the record, I refrained from anything that could be a distraction. I wasn't drinking, and I was celibate," she explains. "I was a tabula-rasa version of myself, the conservation and focus of energy."

Much of Clark's creative process has entailed challenging, then surprising, even herself. "I started playing the guitar when I was 12 and really never stopped," she adds. It's somewhat inevitable that her identity would ultimately entwine with her creations. "Music is still my entire identity. There are so many ways to be creative." 

Andrew Bird  is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler and songwriter who picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear. As a teen Bird became interested in a variety of styles including early jazz, country blues and folk music, synthesizing them into his unique brand of pop.

Since beginning his recording career in 1997 Bird has released 14 albums and performed several hundred concerts worldwide. He has recorded with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, appeared as "Dr. Stringz" on "Jack's Big Music Show," and headlined concerts at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, and festivals worldwide. Mojo Magazine declared him "simply incredible live." In recent years he performed as the Whistling Caruso in Disney's "The Muppets" movie, scored the FX series "Baskets," and collaborated with inventor Ian Schneller on Sonic Arboretum, an installation that exhibited at New York's Guggenheim Museum, Boston's ICA and the MCA Chicago. Bird has been a featured Ted Talk presenter, a New York Times op-ed contributor, and is an advocate for Everytown for Gun Safety. Additionally, Bird hosts an ongoing Facebook Live series of performances called Live From The Great Room, putting the creative process on display for fans as he performs and converses with friends and collaborators in a candid, intimate setting.
