Do you remember the epic block party at the end of the 1995 cult classic, "Empire Records"?

Well, now it's our turn to "Damn The Man! Save The Empire." -- this Saturday at "All in for the 99%".

Artist, musicians, writers and activists unite at 400 South La Brea to amplify the voices of the 99%, to demand an end to Citizens United and to call for real campaign finance reform. Open to the public from 10:30am to 6:00pm, the day will feature SLAKE Magazine readings, Funny or Die short film screenings, Rebuild the Dream trainings and DJ sets curated by The Embassy.

The gallery space will also highlight art from creatives such as Retna, Gia Coppola, Shepard Fairey, Neck Face, Robbie Conal and HEARTSCHALLENGER, along with many more.

Probably the most exciting event of all will be one done with your help. At 11am Saturday morning, guests are asked to participate in an aerial art project -- an interconnected 99% -- which will be photographed from above.

For more information go to All in for the 99% online or on Facebook.
