AADL Freeing John Sinclair Website

. May 17, 2012.

It’s been 40 years since “they gave him ten for two” and John Sinclair hit the national spotlight as the poster boy for the turbulent generational rift between Nixon era government and rock n’ roll rebellion. To mark the 40th anniversary of the legendary 1971 John Sinclair Freedom Rally at Crisler Arena the Ann Arbor District Library is launching a Freeing John Sinclair website on December 9, the eve of the anniversary, and presenting a series of events to commend the occasion. As a part of the celebration on the 9th, there will be a special concert at The Ark by the Commander Cody Band with a guest appearance by John Sinclair & Beatnik Youth. The concert starts at 8pm and is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more Freeing John Sinclair events check www.aadl.org in the weeks to come for updates.
