Updated: Occupy Denver concert with BLKHRTS, Jonny 5, Sole, Whomp Truck slated for October 22

Update, 11:49 a.m. Saturday: Occupy Denver has released a new version of the poster. Notably, Project Aspect has been added to the musical line-up.

Police may have cleared the State Capitol grounds this morning, but Occupy Denver will live on at least a week longer with a concert slated for Saturday, October 22 at Veterans Memorial Park. Occupy Denver volunteer Michelle Lessans is part of the committee that applied for a permit for the concert/rally. The group applied for a permit in late September and spent about two weeks looking for bands for the show. At first the group had trouble finding acts on such short notice, but eventually they linked up with BLKHRTS, Jonny 5, Sole and more, all whom support the cause of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Denver.
