fair food austin benefit @ music gym, december 4th 2009

the austin music gym is not only about after-parties.
it's also about pre-parties!
& partying while doing some good.
for instance, a benefit for fair food austin.
fair food austin aims to "educate consumers about the human rights crisis farmworkers face and to promote the campaign for fair food. the campaign requires large food corporations -- from taco bell to whole woods -- to demand more humane labor standards from their florida tomato suppliers, to pay a premium price for more fairly produced tomatoes, and to buy only from growers who meet those higher standards."
thanks to frank smith & dj hoodie allen for the fine bouquet of entertainment.
