The FreeSpook Movement invites you to join us for an afternoon of hip-hop, poetry, food, and live art. This is a benefit show to raise money for Michael ‘Esé Spook’ Armendariz and his family to cover legal fees for Spook’s upcoming habeas case. Our growing list of talented performers includes Asliani, Running With Arrows, Government Cheese, Manuel Gonzalez, Robert Wilson, Kindra Aryana, Tom Peterson (The Zone), Charles Powell and Jimi B from Street Beat!

$5 suggested donation at the door. Frito pie and tamales for sale. All donations and proceeds will go to the FreeSpook Legal Defense Fund. If you would like to donate now, click here. If you would like to help organize this event, please contact us by sending us an email here.



We will be drawing the winner of the FreeSpook raffle at the event. The raffle prize consists of a framed US postage stamp collection featuring the Black Heritage Series, generously donated by a friend of the FreeSpook Movement. To buy tickets for the raffle, sending us an email here or contact us on Facebook.


Please download, print and distribute these flyers in your communities.
