I was just perusing the Galactic (new orleans funk band) website, to see if they may be available to headline the New Orleans Earth Day Festival (Sun. April 5, mark your calendar) and noticed that they had played Conan O’Brien this year. As I checked out the video, I noticed something even cooler, their drummer (and GRN supporter) Stanton Moore was wearing our “Defend New Orleans – Defend the Coast” t-shirt! Stanton’s a big fan of the coast, and wears the shirt a ton, so I’m sure millions have been subliminally recruited to the cause to save nola and save the coast.Stan accompanied us on a coastal flyover just after Voodoo (along with Clint Maedgen of the NOLA Bingo Show and Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and Angelo Moore of Fishbone). We filmed the trip and are putting together a video short, which I’ll be sending along soon. But until that’s done, here’s where to watch/listen to some great music and see the shirt in action: thanks to Jac at Defend NOLA for the design, Alternative for donating the shirts, and Stan for rockin’ the coast (literally).Aaron Viles is GRN’s Campaign Director
