An Evening with Rock Star Supreme Court Plaintiff Simon Tam of The Slants
April 24, 2019 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Wolf's Ridge Brewing
215 North 4th St, Columbus, OH 43215
Simon Tam is a self-proclaimed troublemaker who is perhaps best known as the founder and bassist of The Slants–the world’s first and only all-Asian American dance rock band. Simon is a keynote speaker, performer, and has set a world record by appearing on the TEDx stage 13 times. We are fortunate to have him as our keynote speaker, and are excited to share with you the opportunity to hear from him firsthand.
In 2017, he won his landmark case at the U.S. Supreme Court–Matal v. Tam–with a unanimous ruling in the trademark dispute over his band’s name. His work has been highlighted in more than 3,000 media features across 150 countries, including Rolling Stone, TIME, NPR, BBC, and the New York Times.
You are cordially invited to join The Buckeye Institute, America’s Future Foundation’s Columbus chapter, and the Federalist Society’s Columbus lawyers chapter for a riveting discussion about this important First Amendment case with The Slants’ own Simon Tam, followed by a very special live acoustic performance of some of his band’s hits that you will not want to miss.
Drinks and heavy appetizers are included in the ticket price, so register–before it sells out–for your spot to attend this exclusive event at Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, which was named Columbus Monthly’s 2017 best restaurant runner up winner and Columbus Alive’s 2017 Brewer of the Year! There is plenty of parking in the lot directly across 4th Street.
