“We believe in the Occupy movement and others like it,” Scott Stephens, manager and vocalist of local pop rock entourage Liquid Blue, told the Reader last month.

“We’ve been an activist group for many years. We’re really hyped to support this movement and provide an ongoing source of income for them.”

Liquid Blue’s second monthly “Occu-party” installation will include their recent Top-10 single “Earth Passport” (a song about world peace which holds a Guinness World Record for “Song Sung in Most [nine] Languages”) and classic protest songs from Dylan, Springsteen, Lennon, and others.

“We believe that the power of an individual voter has greatly diminished and the wealthy (1%) now control the majority of influence and power in the United States,” their website reads. “We advocate a non-violent people's revolution which aims to bring power back to the people.

"Music has always played a significant role in movements of social change and it's our desire to help uplift and unify citizens willing to stand up for their rights and the rights of others.”

A San Diego County certified green business, Liquid Blue has hosted a monthly documentary movie night since 2004.


Stephens list the band's priority issues as follow, with those in bold as in-line with Occupy's goals:

Enforcement of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (No Torture)!

Enforcement of the Geneva Conventions and prosecution of leaders who violate it Establish and fund a U.S. Department of Peace!

Reduce the Federal Military Budget by at least 50%! Prosecute White Collar Crime!

Support True Democracy- Get money out of politics. Every citizen should have an equal voice!

Make protecting the Environment our national priority. It's all we've got!

Fund Higher Education so youth does not have to go into debt to get an education!

Elimination of Government Bailouts. Regulate industries so that no company becomes to big to fail!

Protect Whistleblowers and the Dissemination of Truth!


Named after a form of LSD from the ‘60s (“We believe everyone should ‘turn-on’ at least once or twice”), Liquid Blue has been dubbed the “World’s Most Traveled Band” with performances in over 115 countries.

Liquid Blue founder Stephens, a former member of the L.A. T-Birds Roller Derby team and the former editor in-chief of Raw Power Magazine, uses roller skates as his primary means of transportation and has skated in more than 100 countries while on tour with the band, whose logo is a mandala representing "world unity and world peace.”

This month’s Occu-party at the World Beat Center features Mark Boyce from G. Love and the Special Sauce, The Rootstrickers, Justin Werner & Co., spoken word by Nathan Say and Ernie McCray, guest speakers Cecile Veillard and Occupy San Diego media liaison Ray Lutz.
