Chadwick Stokes (aka Chad Urmston), pictured, lead singer and songwriter for the bands Dispatch and State Radio, will appear at the Strand Theatre in Rockland with The Pintos on Thursday, January 17, at 7:30 p.m. Contemporary folk singer-songwriter Brooke Annibale will open the show. Stokes’ music spans indie folk, roots rock, reggae fusion, and rap rock. Stokes is a co-founder of Calling All Crows, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing bands and fans together to create change through hands-on service and activism. About his Northeast winter tour with The Pintos, Stokes says, “I’ve had a batch of tunes for a while that we’ve been playing but I wanted to get in another live run to make sure the songs are ready to record. Joining me are my mates JR (drums), brother Willy (banjo), and Tommy (bass). We’ll be trying out the songs in different forms to see what works.” Stokes toured around the country this past summer with Dispatch, accompanied by Nahko and Medicine for the People, with Calling All Crows volunteer projects on every stop of the tour, including the Here For The Music campaign, combating sexual harassment in the music industry. A Here For The Music training session will take place at the Strand Theatre from about 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. prior to the performance. It is open to anyone who wants to learn different ways of dealing with sexual harassment (whether you experience it yourself or observe something happening).
