LOVE State Radio and Calling All Crows!

I did a community service project with members of State Radio, Calling All Crows, and the band's fans as a representative of the HeadCount San Francisco Team earlier this year, and then set up a HeadCount outreach table at the band's Fillmore Auditorium show that night.

Then I got to work with them again on behalf of Surfrider, regarding a stream cleanup with the Washington, DC Surfrider Chapter.

Then when the band was in DC again for the Save My Oceans Tour they again joined Surfrider DC for a cleanup, and Surfrider had an outreach booth at the concert.
The latest is that they are joining the Surfrider San Francisco Chapter for a beach cleanup on May 23. LOVE THEM!
So I am very excited about the band's newest announcement - Alternative Break Tour II: Northeast Corridor! - saw it on Facebook this AM. Sounds like this will be a really good time:)
From Calling All Crows:
When we decided to host Calling All Crows' first ever Alternative Break Tour this past March, we weren't really sure what to expect. But with an incredible crew of volunteers, awesome service partners, delicious food, local flavor, some great rock shows in truly historic venues, and an unforgettable experience for all involved, we decided we just had to do it again!
But why wait until next spring?!
We don't want to wait either, which is why it is our pleasure to announce...
Alternative Break Tour II: Northeast Corridor!
Over June 14-20, 2010, a dozen service-minded State Radio fans will have the opportunity to devote a week of summer vacation to volunteer with environmental service organizations up and down the Northeast Corridor, experience the region’s Revolutionary history, make new friends from across the country, and enjoy some of State Radio's largest shows of the year!
