The latest issue focuses on fracking and other environmental concerns. Seth has also painted many banners for Sane Energy Project. Seth will offer a slide show of his comics with music by , Andy Laties, Eric Blitz. and J Gonzalez-Blitz

Fred Gillen Jr has released nine full-length albums, to great critical acclaim, and has toured all over the U.S. and Europe. His songs have been featured on ABC’s “All My Children,” NPR’s “Car Talk,” CMJ’s New Music Marathon Sampler, and in 2012 his version of Woody Guthrie’s “I Ain’t Got No Home” was featured on “Pete Remembers Woody,” a collection of Pete Seeger’s spoken stories about Woody Guthrie. Like Guthrie, his songs often reflect the struggles of the marginalized and forgotten, shining a light on both the despair and hope in the human condition.
