Rock Band Lake Street Dive Tackles Tax Policy at Shows

Posted on April 13, 2016

Rachel Price is the lead singer of Lake Street Dive.

Brooklyn-based rock/pop band, Lake Street Dive, recently encouraged the crowd during a show to learn about high-income earners using offshore tax havens to avoid taxes.

Lake Street Dive, whose most recent album is in the top 100 most downloaded on iTunes, has partnered with Oxfam America, a nonprofit organization that works on poverty, hunger and injustice issues to help promote its anti-tax haven campaign.

Musicians have always been involved in the fight for social justice, but tax policy has never been a popular topic, especially among rock bands.  By partnering with Oxfam, Lake Street Dive is attempting to inspire change with a social shift in consciousness about tax issues that affect our society.

Rock bands talking about tax policy during a show is certainly a unique development in both rock history and tax history.
