The Unconventional Tour is on the road to the conventions. This Mini-Fest of political music, film, fun is an "unconventional" event which will bring greater awareness to plight of first responders of 9/11. This being an election year, this tour will also highlight the importance of voting, working to bring together local activist groups from the anti-war movement, 9/11 Truth, and social justice communities.

Electronic duo and multi-media artists “The Away Team” join with other musicians and winners of the "UnConventional Tour" political songwriting contest. Filmmaker Penny Little will show one of her powerful and disturbing documentary films ""9/11 Dust and Deceit" and/or "Electile Dysfunction". Local speakers and special guests will join the tour.

Most of us know the political process is tainted; but the power of your vote is real. The greater the number of voters, the harder it is for someone to steal, cheat, or rig an election. This year, it's important to keep up the momentum, get activated, have fun in our activism, and create the change we want to see and be in the world.

The Unconventional Tour will work in alliance with the 911 Responders Fund and is seeking other endorsers and sponsors, especially groups working to get out the vote, activist organizations working create a greater awareness of the important political issues in the US right now - the preventive wars, torture, the Patriot Act, the treatment of our soldiers and veterans, the loss of our civil liberties, election fraud, the treatment of the heroes of 9/11 and the lies of 9/11...

The Unconventional Tour wants to help cure “Electile Dysfunction” and help find a cure for the ailments we're suffering from institutionalized psychopaths in charge. The inmates truly are running the assylum. Now is the time to activate and agitate. In the tradition of old time barnstorming chautauqua’s, the Unconventional Tour is a Political Bar Camp, a mashup of music, film, politics and fun!

In addition, Penny Little will be interviewing people at the events for her upcoming film.
