ALO - 8x10, The State Theatre - 10/12/2007 & 10/13/2007

Review by Nicole Parisi-Smith. Originally posted to the Surfrider Washington, DC Chapter message board on November 1, 2007 ---

Both of the ALO shows went really well.

The band gave a shout out to Surfrider from the stage on both nights and mentioned one of our campaigns. They were really interested in the plastic marine debris information that I printed out for them off of Captain Charlie Moore's Algalita Marine Research Foundation website.

Zach Gill (keys) stuck a Save Trestles sticker on one of his instrument cases. Their manager, Jenna, took a DC Chapter sticker for her scrapbook:)

I tabled by myself on Friday night at the 8x10. Eli Kiljanek tabled with me on Sat night at the State. In both cases we met a bunch of Surfrider members who haven't come out to an event in a while. We encouraged them to come out to movie night, etc!

We also collected signatures on Surfrider National's BEACH Act petition addressed to US Senators from MD and VA, and also continued to collect signatures on the Save Trestles petition.

We handed out the sustainable seafood guides to fans(which Dan from ALO was very interested in) and info on plastic marine debris.

It was a lot of fun! Thanks again to Eli, and to Jenna, ALO, the 8x10, and the State!
