The Occuponics greatly enjoyed providing musical entertainment for Occupy Town Square’s “pop up” Occupation, which occurred on Sunday, March 25th, 2012. Although it rained a bit, the inclement weather could not damp the spirit of the peaceful demonstrators, and a fine time was had by all.
The band performed many songs at Occupy Fort Greene, both original, parodies, and traditional folk songs. Other musicians were also on hand, including Dave Lippman, and the irrepressible Rude Mechanical Orchestra.
The Occuponics performed with The People Staged this past Saturday night, providing music for an original play entitled “FATHER$ OF LIES.” The performance was streamed live to the world as part of the international broadcast ‘Low Lives: Occupy!’ on March 3, 2012. The music performed was “I Don’t Know But I’ve Been Told,” an original composition by the Occuponics’ Stephen Carl Baldwin.
Heather J. Chin, of the Sunset Park Home Reporter and the Brooklyn Spectator, recently profiled the Occuponics’ Paul Stein and Stephen C. Baldwin for the paper’s “Brooklyn Buzz” section, and the band very much appreciates the coverage.

The Occuponics were glad to play in Brooklyn at the 83rd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday on January 16, 2012. This event was part of Occupy Sunset Park (OSP), and involved a march up Fourth Avenue. You can read more about this event on the site of the Home Reporter and Sunset News.
