It was with delighted surprise that a large cache of Looters video, long 
thought to be lost, was rediscovered in 2010. This included footage shot 
on two separate trips to Nicaragua which has considerable historical 
value, especially for people researching the connections between music, 
the Bay Area and Central America in the 1980?s. The band decided to turn 
this footage over to the Freedom Archives for its preservation and to 
prepare it for public access. In the process of transferring from video 
to hard drive, however, it was discovered that some of the tapes could 
not be played without first being baked. This is a costly process and it 
is for this purpose that the Freedom Archives proposed we do a 
celebratory benefit to raise the required funds.  We hope everyone 
connected with the Looters, Komotion or World Beat will join us in an 
evening of discussion, poetry, film and music. See you there!
- Mat Callahan (founder of the Looters)

Event Details: Please join Mat Callahan, Poet Nina Serrano & surprise 
guests at The Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics located at 
518 Valencia on Friday May 3rd @ 7pm. Sponsored by the Freedom Archives.
