Legendary Chicago Hardcore Punk band Los Crudos and hardcore punk locals Gay Kiss played a late night after show at 51 West Coffee in Tempe, Az – which coincided with the King of the Monsters 20th anniversary. Los Crudos are a very conscience band singing on many issues that many of us can relate to because they are happening in our own communities. Martin Sorrondeguy, vocalist for Los Crudos said “The money that you paid tonight, we are not taking a dollar. It’s all going to local S**t to benefit any charities/issues that are going on here in Arizona – stuff just so you know. This is just an idea that got brought up last night and I just thought we can’t leave here without leaving something behind”. So they donated the funds made to A.O.Y.C. We are extremely thankful! We struggle to keep up with supplies for screen printing, banner making, zines, spaces, helping provide food/water for gatherings, so this money is very much appreciated!

We give very special thanks to Los Crudos, Gay Kiss and 51 West Coffee for putting on an amazing night.

About Akimel O'odham Youth Collective

We are a youth based group of the Gila River Indian Community outreaching, organizing, and informing youth about the issues going on in their community. An example includes the proposed South Mountain Loop 202 freeway extension, going on the reservation or off the reservation. We strongly oppose this project and will be working with all O’odham to stop this freeway. Youth today are always given false information, we hear so many sides of a story, yet most don’t hear all of the information. The AOYC is here to change that, we want to give the correct information to the youth so we may grow stronger as a group as well as a community. We will outreach to youth in the community so that they may become involved in the issues that will affect their future. We want youth to know of the issues that will directly affect not only themselves, but as well as their O’odham Himdag (traditional way of life). AOYC will organize gatherings and rallies so that youth have a say and are heard. In our previous experiences, we have not seen many youth out in the public participating in rallies or demonstrations. We want to empower youth so that the community knows how important these issues are to us. In near future expect more youth actively speaking and doing what is right for our community SO GET INFORMED AND TAKE ACTION!!!!
