Like your music with a side of activism? Then look no further; we have an event for you!

Vegan songstress spectacular Nellie McKay will join forces with Shane Alexander and actress/musician Persia White on November 4th for a night of music and activism.

Both McKay and White are Ecorazzi favorites not only for their awesome artistic work, but also for their strong commitment to advocacy. The pair are both strong supporters of green causes and have worked with a myriad of eco and animals organizations, including Global Green, Farm Sanctuary, and PETA.

In an exclusive interview with Ecorazzi, McKay discussed the challenges of living a more thoughtful and compassionate life.

“I think it’s hard on everybody because every place you turn there’s something being offered to you that comes from another kind of suffering,” said McKay. “Whether it’s an animal product that comes from a factory farm or a product that comes from a sweatshop or a product based on the raping of the earth, there’s basically no way to avoid hurting others, and that’s kind of a devastating thing. So you just try to hurt as little as possible.”

The concert will take place at The Roxy in Los Angeles, CA, and tickets are available now. Visit TicketMaster.com to snag a pair for yourself!
