Farm Aid’s 2013 concert is September 21 in Saratoga Springs! Featuring Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews… a good crew. And support farms! Check it out here, buy tickets here. And come say hey to the greenhorns table!
If you are interested:
Wearing clean, un-ripped clothes without brand-logos, get yourself to the venue (train accessible!) by noon, work the day with us 12-6pm.

Looking forward to hearing from a few of you who want to attend!

WOW! rock concerts.
I think that the lovelies over at Superforest are scheming to help us set up a rock concert of our own.
