2006_07_arts_swoon.jpgIf They Come For You In The Morning: A Benefit Art Show for Daniel McGowan, will be held tonight at ABC No Rio (who now own their building!). The show will raise money for the legal defense of local activist Daniel McGowan, who was arrested last December during Operation Backfire, a multi-state sweep of environmental activists who have now been charged with virtually every unsolved earth and animal liberation case in the Northwest. He is currently facing life plus 335 years in prison on federal charges of arson, property destruction, and conspiracy - he has pled not guilty to all charges.

Featuring over 80 renowned and emerging artists (including: Swoon, Banksy, Borf, David Ellis, Klutch and a whole lot more), the minimum-bid auction will have artwork priced as low as $5, there will also be pieces sold at a flat rate. Selected work is also be available for purchase online at www.visualresistance.org/mcgowan. Donations also accepted.

5 to 10pm // ABC No Rio [156 Rivington Street] // Free
