Good concert, good cause

bfc_image-1„Oh, give me ahome, where the buffalo roam…“

If you want to give a helping hand to your furry bison friends, plan on going to a concert at the Visual Arts Collective, 3638 Osage Street Wednesday. Tatanka 2009 is a benefit for the Buffalo Field Campaign. Along with a presentation from BFC’s co-founder Mike Mease, there will be rip-snortin‘ music from The Netson Family, The Magnetics, La Knots and Urb.

A little more about BFC: It‘s the only group that actually goes out in the field, everyday, to stop the slaughter and harassment of Yellowstone’s wild buffalo. Volunteers from around the world defend buffalo on their traditional winter habitat and advocate for their protection.

BFC daily volunteer patrols stand with the buffalo sunrise to sunset, on the ground the buffalo choose to be on, and document every move made against them. They run patrols from cars, skis and snowshoes to protect buffalo outside the park, communicating via a network of hand-held radios. Tactics range from video documentation to nonviolent civil disobedience.
