On Saturday, April 20, a full day music festival will be held here on the Crawford family farm to further fund their legal battle. Appropriately named "Stand Tall," the concert will feature seven bands from across the state. The Octopus Project, the headliner band from Austin, won't start until 9 p.m. So even if you're attending one of the many Earth Day events during the day, you can still take part in this historic concert. Bring a blanket, chairs and a picnic basket and sit on a hill overlooking the farm that the Crawford family is working hard to protect.
Bands - artists have so generously donated their time and talents to help this cause:
The Octopus Project,
The Tambourine Machine,
Freak the Mighty
