This weekend just got a little bit better, this Saturday Haiti will be celebrating their independence and also a group of music lovers will be celebrating the life of Adam “MCA’” Yauch. On May 11th a Twitter and Facebook page were set up for MCA Day, which will honor the late Adam “MCA” Yauch. The event will take place this Saturday May 19th in Union Square, and will give fans of the Beastie Boy a place to memorialize him as a group.
On the Facebook page, organizer Michael Kearney has written: “Picture an NYC Subway car full of all types and walks of life… singing Beastie Boys songs in unison. That’s my vision for MCA DAY NYC. I’m going to build that. Thanks for your support. That trains a coming…” We’ve contacted Kearney for more information on the event, and will update as more details come in.
MCA Day will start at 11 a.m. in Union Square. Everyone attending is encouraged to bring songs, memories, and anything else that will help pay tribute to Yauch and his life.
