Earthbound Earthfest @ Avondale Brewery


Watch this video!!!

On Sunday, April 21, 2013, Earthbound will play their highly-anticipated annual outdoor concert called Earthbound’s Earthfest at Avondale Brewery! (201 41st Street South)

Open to all ages (those under 21 must be accompanied by a parent), this family-friendly event’s purpose is to raise awareness for Earth Day and raise funds for Black Warrior Riverkeeper, a citizen based non-profit organization dedicated to improving water quality, habitat, recreation, and public health throughout the Black Warrior River watershed, which provides approximately half of Birmingham’s drinking water.

Throughout the event, Earthbound will play several sets, joined by speeches from Riverkeeper and exhibits from local artists. Optional donations from the audience will support Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s efforts to protect local waterways and the Birmingham area’s drinking water supply.

Avondale Brewery, along with the Forest Park / South Avondale Neighborhood Association, the Birmingham City Council, and numerous other organizations and busineeses, have publicly urged the University of Alabama System’s Trustees to refuse to lease/sell property for the proposed Shepherd Bend Mine, which would discharge pollutants 800 feet from the Birmingham Water Works Board’s Mulberry Fork intake facility. Throughout the event, Black Warrior Riverkeeper will provide information and displays about Shepherd Bend and other issues affecting our water resources.

For more information about the event, or to inquire about volunteering, sponsorship donations, or the Shepherd Bend Mine controversy, please contact Charles Scribner, Executive Director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper, at 205-458-0095 or info@blackwarriorriver.org
