Percussionists with Latin bells and Coke-can shakers, including from NY Samba, are planning to attend. As always, RingOut will RING rather than confront: this will be a peaceful event.

The RingOut will be held from 9:30-11:30 PM. Wednesday, Sept. 1 (the "Hispanic event" runs from 10 PM to 2 AM) on W. 34th St. between 11th and 12th Avenues (a/k/a West St. or the West Side Highway)..

RingOut is a new grassroots non-profit dedicated to ringing bells in large-scale ringing events. It wants to "ring out the old, ring in the new; ring out the false, ring in the true." RingOut created the celebrated "World Trade Center/Ground Zero Observance" August 28 with the premiere of a Pauline Oliveros composition played by thousands of bell-ringing participants. RingOut also participates with other groups, including Times Up!, Greene Dragon, Billionaires for Bush, and anti-globalization groups. For more information, please go to our website.
