To honor the power of youth to make positive change, Grammy-nominated Boston songwriter Alastair Moock will release a rootsy and inclusive album called Be a Pain: An Album for Young (and Old) Leaders on April 3rd. Moock and his musical friends will celebrate the release with family shows at the Burren in Somerville, MA, the Boston Public Library, and at Kindiecomm in Philadelphia this spring. The album is available for pre-orders now.
Be a Pain is a rallying cry for young (and old) leaders in these turbulent times. It looks to the heroes of our past (Dr. King, Harvey Milk, Billie Jean King, Pete Seeger, Cesar Chavez, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X) and our present (Malala Yousafzai, the Parkland student protesters, climate change marchers) to encourage kids to move the ball forward.
