NEWS FROM “EVOLUTION OF ORGANIC”
A reminder about upcoming shows. On 6/02, this coming Saturday, from 1-4pm, is our event at Paicines Ranch. It is an emerging center of regenerative ranching and an extraordinarily beautiful place. I urge you to come tour the ranch, see the film and hear John Wick talk about carbon farming, “the best news on the planet.” Paicines Ranch is in San Benito County, south of Hollister, about a half-hour beyond Gilroy for those of you coming south on Hwy 101 & 25. Reservations are required, so we can give you directions. Only $10. Here’s the link: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3399995

Other June shows include: Cinemapolis in Ithaca NY on 6/12; Marmalade Library in Salt Lake City on 6/25; and CalEPA headquarters in Sacramento on 6/26. Those of you in Mendocino please mark your calendars for 7/03 at the Arena Theater in Point Arena. We just booked an engagement at the Bijou in Eugene, sponsored by Mountain Rose Herbs and Organically Grown Company. Thanks! So we have a mini-tour of Oregon: 7/16 in Ashland at the Varsity; 7/17 in Grants Pass at Southgate Cinemas; and 7/18 in Eugene at Bijou Cinemas. I’m very pleased to say that the film’s Sonoma premiere will be 7/26 at The Shed in Healdsburg. David Katz, one of the original gangsters from Farallones Institute, and his son Jacob Katz, founder of the Nigiri Project (raising salmon in rice fields), will appear with others. Thanks very much to Cindy Daniels and Doug Lipton of The Shed, as well as Evan Wiig of CAFF.

Just added are two new shows, at both of which I will appear:

  • Pothole Pictures in Shelburne Falls, MA on August 17th
  • Los Angeles Public Library, the Mark Taper Auditorium at the Main, 10:30am on September 29th

BUY US A SONG, our crowdfunding campaign to raise $20K for licensing five pieces of music, launches next Monday, June 4th. This is the last call, a final opportunity to support “Evolution of Organic” and bring the film home! We figure that a collective approach is the best way to buy a Grateful Dead song. We decided to home-brew the crowdfunding campaign, so you will find it on our website:

Check out the new appeal video, with me looking like a lunatic at the prospect of being done. Thanks to everyone who got the film this far. We hope you’ll contribute again at the end. And we’ll be reaching out to those who have not yet had a chance to contribute. Let’s all join Uncle John’s Band!
