Today marks the official launch of Occupy Musicians, a resource for musicians who support the Occupy Wall Street movement and its affiliated protests. Among the first signers: Tom Morello, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson, Saul Williams, Talib Kweli, Jello Biafra, Amanda Palmer and Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto of Fugazi.

Organizers of the site will help coordinate performances at protest sites and host creative work by some of the artists. Occupymusicians.com is a companion project to Occupy Writers, Occupy Filmmakers and Occupy Comics, other virtual gathering places for creative-economy workers who wish to express their support of the protest movement.
