"We’re out here doing this because many of these tributaries drain into the ocean. This is the Haines Canyon Channel and it’s a major tributary that drains into the L.A. River. This drains into the Tujunga Wash and the wash is a 13 mile long tributary that goes into the L.A. River. It goes through Hansen Dam and passed Valley College where the Judith Baca’s “Great Wall of Los Angeles” mural is painted and then it meets the L.A. River. If we don’t clean this trash up before it hits the ocean it all becomes a part of that giant floating island of plastic. We want to make a dent in that. I think the biggest thing is educating people that it’s your street and it’s your river. So whatever is on your street is going to end up in your river. We want people to know that when you clean up your street, you’re cleaning up your river. You don’t even have to come out to the river cleanup. You can just cleanup your front yard and it makes a difference."

"Any opportunity to play music outside for people is always a joy especially to be a part of the community beyond music and entertainment. I’m closer to something deeper which is that we need to be mindful and take care of our community and the impact we have; The footprint that we leave behind. I think in a city like Los Angeles - I live in Koreatown - it’s very hard to get people to realize every little bit counts. I think we feel a lot of times among the millions of people we don’t matter or that our causes are lost amidst the fray and the busyness of life and the challenges we face day-to-day to live and thrive in a city. And sometimes picking up trash and caring for the beauty of our space seems like a luxury or like something that isn’t worth our time. So to get out in the public, in public view to be visible, to let people know that there are those of us who do care and are willing to spend the time, take the time, to make sure that our city is able to be beautiful; That’s what I think we are seeking in life. That’s what we are seeking when we play music. We are seeking beauty and if we can help by not leaving our junk behind then I think we’ve done our job."
