Promised I'd mention this in a bit more detail, so here it goes... This coming Saturday, July 18th, a group called The Pure Water Project is throwing a festival/benefit, the Pure Water Music Festival, down in the La Porte 'hood.
It'll run from 1-9:30PM at the Fairmont Park Church (10401 Belfast Rd.), and they've managed to recruit some extremely talented folks, both local and from a bit further afield: listenlisten, B., The Eastern Sea (Austin/Houston), Cedar Boy Bailey (aka Sergio from Buxton, possibly with Anthony from The Western Civ & Hollywood Black), B L A C K I E, Papermoons (Austin/Houston), & Old Coyote (Austin; no clue who the "And More..." might be, sorry).
The festival costs $10, which isn't bad considering the lineup and is well worth it for the cause alone. I'll let the Pure Water folks explain that themselves, though:
The #1 killer in the world today is unsanitary water. Over 30,000 people die everyday from diseases due to contaminated drinking water. Over 1 billion people around the glove lack access to pure drinking water. The overwhelming majority of these victims live in the poverty stricken and wartorn countries of Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Pure Water Project exists to raise awareness and resources for the need in Africa. One well can bring new health and life to an entire community by providing over 600 gallons of safe water a day. The cost for one well is $5,390. You can help by donating or volunteering at a special event.
