Last night (18 December) in Los Angeles, Fonda Theatre hosted a "We Rock With Standing Rock" benefit concert in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The concert saw performances from TV on the Radio, Sky Ferreira, Devendra Banhart, and Fiona Apple. All proceeds from the show went to the official Oceti Sakowin Camp (Seven Council Fires) Fund, the Seeding Sovereignty Project, GiveLove, and Native Children's Survival.
Fiona Apple isn't exactly known to perform live very often these days, which is why here appearance at the benefit show was particuarly special. To mark the occassion and in response to recent events in America, Fiona Apple gave those in attendance the live debut of her recent anti-Donald Trump Christmas song, "Trump's Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire." When she finished the song, she yelled "Donald Trump, fuck you!" to an enthusiastic response.
The protests in response to the Dakota Access Pipeline resulted in officials looking for alternative building routes, halting construction of the original plans.
