Phoenix, Arizona, “punkgrass” outfit The Haymarket Squares—all of whose members are vegan or vegetarian—whipped up a toe-tappin’ ditty for the animals and performed it at Kentucky Fried Cruelty.

The song was written by bassist Marc Oxborrow. “He is a big animal lover and he wanted to express his disgust with factory farming practices and peoples’ connection to those practices when they choose to work around, buy, and eat meat,” says guitarist John Norris. “Our song about/against factory farming seemed like a great fit for a fast food restaurant.”

If you live in Arizona, you can catch the band’s next performance in Mesa on July 22. This time, they’ll be performing at a more conventional venue, the Hollywood Alley. :)
