It’s a trio of psychedelic rock, folk and alternative country as The Fatty Acids, Ladders, and Heavy Leaves take the stage in the best kind of benefit show, the kind where you get to kick back with a local brew, check out some live music, and feel good about supporting a vital cause in our community. It’s all to raise funds for Growing Power, a Milwaukee organization designed to foster innovative urban agriculture and promote sustainability in our food system.

If you want to hear more, don’t be late. Growing Power’s CEO Will Allen—recognized as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people—will speak at 8 p.m., introducing the first band around 9 p.m.

We suspect it will be a night to remember. And for less than the price of a movie ticket? That’s music to our ears.
