On Wednesday, September 24, Flashband and the DC Public Library join forces for a special Banned Books Week presentation. “Flash Banned: Freedom Of Speech Showcase” is a multi-event showcase highlighting our freedom of speech, and humanity's natural disdain for censorship.

Musicians will be challenged to perform songs inspired by the concept of censorship and free speech. Each band will be given a 15 minute set, and will be asked to write at least one original song in the theme of the event. Three bands will have the opportunity to perform at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library as a part of the Banned Books Week celebration. Click here to learn more.
