Made it to the Final Round of Commune's Contest!

Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me in the first round!!! Click here to vote and to watch the video:
(Just click the pink vote button under my photo.) You can vote once a day until May 5th! Sorry to bother you but it only takes a second. Thank you so much!
Commune is a movement of artists, designers, musicians and folks that take a stand against tobacco corporations and their presence in the scene. Every month they host an event with a local band, DJ, designer and artist at Commune Wednesdays. I got to be their featured artist last Wednesday at Signal Kitchen.

They had Com Truise and other great DJs and a photo booth! So many people came out to this show and boogied down.

This campaign is called “Feed Need Not Greed” and will help raise awareness about world hunger caused by the tobacco industry. They chose 3 local vendors from each of the Commune cities (San Diego, San Francisco and Burlington) and I won for Vermont!
So they flew their video guy, Kevin, out from San Diego to film me in this featurette. We had just gotten back from Costa Rica and I was 2 days into a bad cold, luckily you can't really tell! I got to choose the music: Antibalas N.E.S.T.A (Never Ever Submit to Authority) an appropriately titled song and a fun and funky background sound. Kevin did an amazing job editing it all together.

The potential prizes for the finalist round are: 1st - $750, 2nd - $500, 3rd - $250. Commune will donate $1 per vote up to $1,000 to neverendingfood.org to go towards projects that help alleviate and/or contribute to healthy crops among tobacco growing communities in Malawi, Africa. So please vote!

Thank you! xoxo
