BABAM! has been less active this year - torn between public health and safety and wanting urgently to use our music to boost messages of Black Lives Matter and housing justice.

As evidence has come in that masks reduce danger brass instruments project sound waves more than aerosolized particles, we've started to join in with socially distanced involvement at protests: at the State House with percussion with All Out Against White Supremacy! to counter alt-right jerks, and then in JP to support City Life/Vida Urbana in "Tenants Rise / Cancel Evictions" - we can't let COVID put people on the street.
