Children of the Revolution: A Tribute to T. Rex Release Party @ The Basement

"Come and celebrate the release of COTR - the songs of T. Rex performed by some of today's greatest bands. Performers include Jawws, Idle Bloom, Don Coyote, The Jag, Steve Lewis, aave, Slick, The Mumzees

"Marc [Bolan] is one of the eternally precocious, fated to live outside the world of adults forever." - Rolling Stone on Electric Warrior, 1972

Children of the Revolution is a celebration of the youthful excess of rock n roll and a tribute to beloved glam icons of the 70s: Marc Bolan and T. Rex. Bringing together 17 up-and-coming indie rock bands from Nashville, Atlanta, and New York -- including Ttotals, Jawws, The Mumzees, Tipper Whore & more -- COTR captures the spirit of Bolan, while creating a sound seemingly unstuck from time somewhere between 1972 and 2015.

A portion of the proceeds from each album sold go to benefit YEAH (Youth Empowerment through Arts and Humanities) -- supporting music education through programs like the Tennessee Teens Rock Camp and raising up a new generation of Children of the Revolution."
