Hangout Fest ’15: Good Gulf

It’s not like we needed another reason to love My Morning Jacket. But they decided to give us one anyway.

In conjunction with the release of their new album, “The Waterfall,” the band has announced a long-term philanthropy effort called The Waterfall Project. Beneficiaries of the project are Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, Climate Justice Alliance and Gulf Restoration Network.

If that last group doesn’t ring a bell and you live on the Gulf Coast, shame on you.

Gulf Restoration Network is committed to uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the natural resources of this vital region we call home. They get how closely our quality of life is tied the Gulf of Mexico and you should too. In fact, Hangout Fest in general probably wouldn’t exist without a healthy Gulf. So it’s only fitting that MMJ are playing one of their first shows after the release of “The Waterfall” in a place they know matters.
