”We forget that the water cycle and the Life cycle are ONE” ~Jacques Cousteau
I’m sure by now most of you know how passionate I am about Barton Springs. . . I – like many otherfolks in Austin including my dear friend, Dave Madden – feel as though it’s the HEART & SOUL of Austin. . . It’s literally a wellspring of inspiration. . . I’ve traveled far and wide and there’s nothing like it anywhere else on earth. . . Where I grew up in Lake Charles, we couldn’t even get in the natural waters (though they are a plenty) because of extreme pollution. . . So many folks grow up like me, not knowing the blessing and pleasure of clean, clear, cool natural waters spilling up from the earth. . . so I never take Barton Springs for granted. And neither do the folks at the Save Our Springs Alliance.
The Save Our Springs Alliance works to protect the Edwards Aquifer, its springs and contributing streams, and the natural and cultural heritage of the Hill Country region and its watersheds, with special emphasis on Barton Springs.
So- Dave and I decided to pull together a big & badass team of band members & string and horn players to put together a summer show that would both celebrate and benefit the SOS Alliance and all they do for our beloved Springs!!!
The event starts at 9pm Saturday July 30th at Momo’s.
Our set starts at 9pm. Dave’s at 10:30pm. we’re both performing with the OMGorchestra & We will be doing never-before-performed arrangements!!! Special Special Magic night!
10% of the cover for the evening will go directly to Save our Springs & It is sponsored by Deep Eddy Vodka which will be providing Special $3 Deep Eddy Vodka summer cocktails as well as providing 1 free drink for the first 50 people through the door!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve tables or for more information on the event.
