After so much frustration, Gothic rockers Dominion, Experiment Perilous and Readership Hostile  decided to bond together and use their music to raise awareness regarding the Yulin dog and cat eating festival  in China.

What is it?

Last year, independent.co.uk published an article titled Yulin Dog Meat Festival 2016: 10,000 dogs to be killed and eaten at China’s annual food event. 

“An estimated 10,000 dogs and cats are expected to be used for meat during the 10 days of the festival, which takes place at Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region in the south-east of the country.

Campaigners say the practice is cruel and a petition has amassed 2.5 million signatures calling for it to be banned, but local government officials say it is organised by private businesses and they are unable to prevent it.

I think that once you dabble with ‘expressive art’ then you have a responsibility to the world. Because you have the VOICE and I think that people who go out of their way to raise awareness of any kind to make this world a kinder and safer place are part of my community. “

You can read more about it here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/yulin-dog-meat-festival-2016-10000-dogs-set-to-be-killed-and-eaten-at-chinese-food-event-a7093321.html

Just because we can’t prevent it right away doesn’t mean we should never do something. And this is exactly what “Save the Howling Dogs” is all about. To borrow the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

According to Dominion lead vocalist Doi Porras, the audience can expect music with conscience.

“They can expect a great night of music . revelry and connecting with a community of like minded people who support the eradication of animal cruelty particularly the dog meat industry and its disgusting display known as the yearly yulin dog and cat eating festival  in China

.”

They have taken the spirit of strength in unity as they will be joined onstage two bands.

 

“We are honored to share the stage with these awesome bands(Experiment Perilous and Readership Hostile ), we’ve played with experiment perilous in the last Los Angeles Goth Festival by the cool gents in Klub Terminal just this year , will be a first with Readership Hostile , we all share same circle of friends.”

“Unfortunately since time in memorial human beings have a dark side that needs to be contained , a hundred years is not needed but just a few moments of even seconds to make a choice . those who engage and enjoy cruelty either need help , self analyzation , but perhaps they need to understand how it feels to be on the receiving end”

Also on the list are Whore Mouth  and the DJs of the show, DJ Xiola, DJ Malvada , DJ Vertigo and DJ Dimitri Slithers will all be there!

Save the Howling Dogs the anti dog meat event is happening on June 3, Saturday at All Star Lanes LA . gates at 8pm.
