Join hosts Chris DiGangi and John Francis along with more than 25 bands for the:


8th Annual Post Folk Fest Festers Fest
Saturday, October 13, 2012
12 noon - ??


For a full list of performers see As always there will be beer, wine & a basic bar + good eats! There will be room for tents this year – a couple of campers- please call Chris to save a spot. There is plenty of floor space for whoever wants or needs to stay over. You might want to bring a sleeping bag. Sunday stragglers get scrapple & eggs & Bloody Marys- and more music…

Half of the net proceeds for this PFFFF will go to assist the Sierra Club in their ongoing efforts to keep this amazing big blue marble we call home a planet worth living on! Every man, woman and child in this country breaths cleaner air, drinks cleaner water and can enjoy a less ravaged American wilderness due to the Sierra Club’s many hard fought victories over the polluters who really do threaten our planet. I do have to mention that with Sierra Club's 501(c) 4 status the donation fee ($25) for a ticket is not tax deductible.; they support our effective, citizen-based advocacy and lobbying efforts

The other half of the net proceeds will be donated to the Fox Children’s Fund- for the surviving family of local fallen hero, Plymouth Township Police Officer & decorated Iraq War Vet Brad Fox, who was tragically killed in the line of duty September 13, 2012, the eve of his 35th birthday.

Event Location is:
The Rebel Lounge
223 Rebel Hill Road
Gulph Mills, PA 19428

Bill McKibben Is Coming to Philly to Present "Do the Math"

To My Environmental Friends:

If you haven't already heard there is a big global warming wake-up event coming to Philadelphia 11/17. I'll be attending, and hope you will be able to join me.

The event is called Do The Math, and it's being organized by the organization (as you know the Sierra Club and often are linked together in events), and features author and activist Bill McKibben. At this event, Bill will be laying out the terrifying math of global warming -- and the plan to try and stop it while we still have time.

Here's the story in short: we can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem is that fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we find a way to stop them.

Bill will be giving the full story on this math, and the plan to keep that carbon from being burned.

The Do the Math Tour is visiting 20 cities across America in November to kick off the campaigns to directly take on the fossil fuel industry. I'd like to invite you to join me in Philly on Nov. 17th. I already have my ticket, but you can get yours here:

I hope you'll join me! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Here are the details:
