Help A Farmer: The Last Drought Benefit Features Mr. Blotto @ The Metro on 8/23

Bob Borchardt makes documentary films and has featured the music of Chicago band Mr. Blotto in a few of them.  His other passion is farming; he owns a certified organic vegetable farm in Southwest Wisconsin, Harvest Moon Farms, with a mission to provide the best fresh produce to retail and restaurants.

Unfortunately, his crop has suffered this year under the extreme weather conditions that has faced the entire country this summer.  He is trying to raise many to provide drought relief and help folks who are committed to balancing out the power and influence of Big Food.

Naturally, he has turned to Blotto -- along with many additional sponsors (and hopefully you) -- to help.  Thursday night, an event, cinematically entitled The Last Drought will take place at Chicago's Metro nighclub in Wrigleyville and feature Mr. Blotto along with other special guests.

If you can't attend the event, please consider making a donation or helping out in any way you can.  Details from his site:
