Lazlo's Corner

I am proud to announce that 'Rock Against Hate', a 68 song compilation benefiting Planned Parenthood and The Trevor Project is now available for pre-order (and comes out on Friday)!

Please go to to pre-order this collection and help out two amazing non-profit organizations.

Every day between now & January 20th we will make 5 more songs available to stream online.

This compilation came together as a result of a very divisive election, and the unfortunate increase in hate crimes that happened in its wake.

All the songs on this compilation are original songs that in some way showcase activism, social issues, or protest. As that can be left open to individual interpretation, this album is wide ranging in subject matter and styles of music.

The people associated with this compilation probably don't all share the same opinion on many things, but we all agree on this:

1. Hate crimes are not an appropriate response, ever!

2. The organizations this compilation is benefiting, Planned Parenthood and The Trevor Project, are just two of many worthy causes that will be in desperate need of funding over the next four years.
