Cascadians unite to celebrate their movement for independence.
The Cascadian independence movement is an ongoing project based on the principles of bioregionalism, sustainability, economic independence and social justice. The movement hopes to unite the bio region stretching from British Columbia to the Northern section of California, under the banner of The Doug (the Cascadian flag) and the region's unique cultural and geographic similarities.
Another way of saying, let’s make a new awesome nation in the Pacific Northwest where we can drink microbrews in the woods and be free! The Horned Hand will host an open mic and a lineup of local bands to raise awareness and celebrate Cascadian independence.
Here is a list of questions to ask yourself to decide if the Cascadian Freedom Movement is right for you:
Do you ever feel that America is just too big?
Are you unabashedly in love with the Pacific Northwest and are you passionate about preserving its natural resources and beauty?
Do you feel that your interests are not appropriately represented by a geographically dislocated government?
Are you a free spirited, tree hugging, naturalist who supports alternative rock music, good beer and civil liberties?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then get down to the Horned Hand to celebrate independence in solidarity with your brethren. When We Were Wolves are a multidimensional country-folk group ready to bring their newly formed sound right to your hungry Cascadian ears.
Blending bluegrass and rockabilly punk, Wild Eye Revolver have a knack for being anti-establishment and playing some damn good music. You may have seen these guys busking for cash in the breezeway a while back, but they have polished up their sound and will be rocking your Cascadian asses.
We are the Eastern front of the Cascadian region, let’s celebrate!
First Monthly Cascadia Party
