Gigs For The Gulf
Avatar by Jeff Taylor of Neil Young Tribute
Here's the new avatar logo for Gigs For The Gulf, a Facebook group for band listings of gigs to benefit the Gulf of Mexico oil gusher disaster.
The avatar logo has been designed and created by Jeff Taylor, of The Neil Young Tribute. You may recall that Jeff recently caught up with Neil just before he walked on stage which resulted in a nice story. Terrific job, Jeff! Thanks so much.
Already there are about a dozen benefit gigs listed from all over the country. So if your band has a gig planned to benefit the Gulf of Mexico, head over to Gigs For The Gulf and post details.
As an aside, there's been some speculation on whether Neil Young's upcoming tour of the Gulf states will be as benefits. We can't say for certain, but it would seem that some of the potential setlist hints indicate the Gulf catastrophe will be very much on Neil's mind. At the least, he will undoubtedly be bringing awareness to the issue.
We just can't begin to tell you how hard this tragedy is hitting us.
While we don't live on the Gulf itself -- or feel immediate, direct impacts -- our hearts just break for the wildlife, fishermen, the habitat, and all the others who are suffering because of this sheer insane stupidity.
Simply, this is the environmental 9-11 of our times. Ecological terrorism, if you will. Quite strangely, this event seems to be hitting us almost even harder than 9-11 itself. While we live only a few miles from the Pentagon and were basically sitting at the end of one of the airport runways (in a cubicle) that a highjacked plane took off from on 9-11, the tragic event itself was over pretty instantly. However, this oil gusher disaster is now going on 70+ days with no end in sight.
Literally, Mother Nature On The Run In The 21st Century.

This is the time for action. This our moment to finally connect all the dots. It is time to be the rain.
