The festival commemorates the 84th anniversary of 1934’s “Bloody Thursday” when two workers were shot and killed in San Francisco for supporting the longshoremen and maritime workers strike. The incident brought about the San Francisco General Strike.

2018 LaborFest | July 1-31

Mike Stout has spent his life rocking the world with his music. Based in Pittsburgh, he is known as the “World’s Grievance Man” and his music has a powerful punch. In 1977 Stout became a steelworker at Homestead Works, where he was elected the union’s head grievance man. He used his music to rally his co-workers at union meetings and against the closures and de-industrialization by the steel companies who moved plants to non-union areas in the U.S. and around the world.

His music unites all workers and the oppressed. Jimmy Kelly, long time labor educator and musican, will also kick up the beat with Stout and other Bay Area musicians.
