The free show is a component of the "Weekend of Resistance" slated for the next three days, a part of the larger "Ferguson October" protest movement.

According to Fubar owner Bob Fancher, the event will be a peace rally with performances as well. It was booked through Mike Judy of Judy Productions and announced late Thursday afternoon.
