In a recent interview with Adrian Grenier and Andrew Vladeck of the Honey Brothers, the two musicians discussed what green means to them and the band as a whole. Grenier talked about the importance of community in the green movement, as well as standing up and getting involved. Check out the interview as well as the band's festival tour debut at the Wanderlust Festival.
This year's Wanderlust Festival in Lake Tahoe marked a number of firsts, including the inaugural festival performance of Adrian Grenier and the Honey Brothers. Between belly aching laughs and a discussion of the carbon footprint of Martians, I was able to get a true sense of Grenier's and the Honey Brothers' approach to personal environmental responsibility.
As the star of Planet Green's Alter Eco, Grenier has taken the lead in sending his fellow band members down a more responsible path. Grenier expressed optimism for the future and spoke of establishing a relationship with family, friends, and the planet. It's about "protecting the things that you love," he said.
Under the snow capped Squaw Valley mountains and a soaring cliff speckled skyline, the Honey Brothers jammed the afternoon away with some tunes from their new album Songs for Your Sister. I felt privileged just to be in attendance because, before this weekend, no music had bellowed from this mountain top stage since the Grateful Dead visited twenty years ago.
