Rebecca Moore is an American musician, actress, and animal rights activist. Notable for her participation at a very young age in performance art and experimental theater productions, and for her own music, she is also known to some as a muse of the singer Jeff Buckley. Moore was also a principle organizer on The Tonic (music venue) Demonstration in 2007, a musical protest to highlight the forced closing of a popular experimental music space in New York. Moore and guitarist Marc Ribot were arrested for refusing to vacate the premises. This is one of only two times in the city's artistic history where artists refused to vacate a cultural venue on ethical grounds and were subjected to arrest (the other incidence being the eviction of artists from Charas El Bohio Community Center.) A press conference followed days later on the steps of City Hall, with then-city councilman Alan Gerson in attendance calling for legislation to protect important cultural spaces with rent relief. Unfortunately, no relief legislation ever resulted, and that club and many others in the neighborhood still closed. Having written several articles for the Musicians Union Local 802 newspaper while working on these actions, Rebecca was awarded the Saul Miller Award in Journalism in 2007 from the AFL-CIO.
