As we previously mentioned, surfer turned musician Jack Johnson is donating 100% of the proceeds from his current To The Sea Tour to a variety of community groups. Heading into the second leg of the run the eco-friendly rocker has announced plans to team up with All At Once and plans to donate $70,000 in direct donations and up to $40,000 in matching grants towards their efforts in clean up and recovery in the Gulf Of Mexico as a result of the BP oil spill. Fans headed to any of the upcoming shows that are interested in volunteering or making donations are encouraged to stop by the Village Green area for more information on how to get involved.

Finally, this fall fans of psychedelic rockers Jefferson Airplane will have a lot to get excited about as the band has dug into their vaults and will release four live albums from their mid-’60s heyday. The quartet of releases, all due out on October 26, will feature a trio of hometown gigs at the famed Fillmore Auditorium from Fall 1966, including original lead singer Signe Anderson’s farewell show with the band and Grace Slick’s first official shows with The Airplane the very next night as well as 1968 gig when they made their return to their home away from home – The Matrix – where they originally honed their chops as the venue’s house band.
