On Friday, July 31, Oakland indie-artist Moonrun will be hosting a livestream release show for their new single and accompanying music video called “Fantasy Life.” Following the premiere will be a webinar/discussion focusing on defunding the Oakland Police Department and redistributing funds toward community-focused care. Links will be provided throughout the event for attendees to donate both to Critical Resistance Oakland and Anti Police Terror Project.
“As life is now very different for musicians and artists alike, I have been thinking a lot about how to be most effective in both releasing my music and amplifying important social justice issues in the process,” explains Moonrun about the decision to include the discussion along with release.
No stranger to strange, Moonrun takes their idiosyncratic sensibilities to explore the frontiers of a musician’s identity and role in a rapidly changing society.
The video and song “Fantasy Life” challenge our values. In this song Moonrun asks us to question what’s real and what matters.
Format will be as follows:
6-6:15pm: music video screening
6:15-7:00pm: Discussion/webinar with Critical Resistance Oakland
