MSK/Y2K (Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP), formerly known as MSKROQ of the 80's, will rock for MHAS (Mental Health Advocacy Services.
Mental Health Advocacy Services is a nonprofit organization providing free legal services to children and adults with mental disabilities in Los Angeles County.
In 1997, Radiohead released OK Computer, one of the great rock records of all time, steeped in end of millennium paranoia and a distrust of the burgeoning electronic age. Two years later, we all waited with bated breath at midnight on New Year’s Eve, scared that the Y2K bug would bring all of modernity to a grinding halt. It didn’t. Instead, a new optimism took hold, and rock again found its strut, with bands like The Strokes and The White Stripes bringing back garage rock attitude, while Franz Ferdinand just wanted us to dance. A few years later, by 2003, that optimism had cracked under the weight of intervening events, when The Arcade Fire exhorted the masses, “Children, Wake Up!”
After donning full makeup and 80’s gear to bring you Cure, Smiths, and New Order covers last year, in their first Law Rocks appearance, the folks from Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp (MSK) will bring you back to the turn of the millennium, playing hits by those bands that came out within a few years of the year 2000 (Y2K) – hence, MSK/Y2K. The band is made up of three attorneys and a paralegal MSK, helped by a couple of friends.
MSK/Y2K will again be playing to support Mental Health Advocacy Services (MHAS), an organization dedicated to providing free legal services to those with mental health disabilities. It’s a truly inspiring organization, led by a man who has devoted his entire legal career to helping the most vulnerable in our society. They deserve your support.
Please get your dancing (and moping) shoes on, be prepared to sing along, and come out and support MHAS.
