08/17/05: Jello Biafra and Others Rock for West Memphis Three
August 04, 2005: San Francisco, Calif. On July 23, 2005 Jello Biafra and other artists came together at The Swedish American Music Hall in San Francisco for the local version of West Memphis Three World Awareness Day, organized by Anje/Vele Entertainment and musician Chuck Prophet. The event raised more than $6,000 for the defense fund of Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr., and Jason Baldwin. The three Arkansas men, dubbed the West Memphis Three, were convicted of the 1993 murders of three elementary school children. Since their trials were chronicled by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky in the HBO documentary "Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills", a groundswell of support has formed around the Echols, Misskelley, and Baldwin support that includes a wide array of artists such as Metallica, Henry Rollins, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Tom Waits, Winona Ryder, South Park creator Trey Parker, and Art Alexakis of Everclear.
