"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Talked Up Local Band

The project:
Help spread the word about local musician Jill Knight playing a free gig in an area shopping center.

A few minutes here and there.

Why bother?
I've loved this band since my days sitting by the creek during my lunch breaks and enjoying their tunes. They're fine on covers, but have wonderful original stuff. While there was no admission to attend the performance, the band was selling CDs, their lifeblood.

Worth it?
Yes - plus, one of my daughters and I enjoyed an afternoon at the shopping center browsing, then ultimately settling down with treats and enjoying the music.
