Sunday, 13th December 2009: Carburetor Dung Goes Acoustic @ Amnesty International’s Human Rights Day, The Annexe
Dung will be going acoustic for AI’s International Human Rights Day. Unlike what we’ve been doing before, this time we are hopeful that all in the band will be able to play, instead of just Joe & Alak on two acoustic guitars. Songs we’re planning to do includes The Gibran Song, a tune we wrote back in the mid-90s but never recorded which is about the death of compassion in the plight of the Palestinian struggle and refugees (influenced by the writings of Khalil Gibran).
AI’s website stated thus:
7.00 pm: Solidarity Night : Dari Rakyat Untuk Rakyat.
