Just between you and me, I’ve been digging the cold lately. Sure, I’ve spent most of it stowing away indoors, but I can’t help but dream of little invasive species dying away when it is twenty below zero. Plus, I’ve got the warm thoughts of two nights of Trampled by Turtles concerts to look foward to and I am hoping that you’ll join me there.
I’ve been enjoying the non-traditional bluegrass sounds of the Turtles for a while now, so I was happy to learn they had a new CD in the works, now titled Trouble. I was all the more excited when they invited MEP and a number of our member groups to join them at the two-night CD release party happening at First Ave. On each night, they have created space for ten organizations to be able to reach out to their fans and talk about the work that we do. And I think that’s just downright good of them to do.
So, won’t you join me for one or both nights at the show? Here are the details:
What: Red Alert: Trouble Ahead,
Help the Planet, Help the People
When: Friday, February 16 and Saturday, February 17
Where: First Ave, in Minneapolis
What Else: Doors open at 8 p.m. each night. Both are 18+ shows. Tickets are $12 ahead of time or $14 at the door.
Come on down. MEP will be there, along with our members Land Stewardship Project, Fresh Energy, Sierra Club, Eco Education, Windustry, and Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy. There will be some fine social justice organizations to boot.
If you’d like a musical taste of the Turtles before hand, you can check out their website. They will also be appearing on Radio K, Cities 97, Zone 105, and KARE 11 between now and then. See you at the show.
