QuestionCongrats, Paul, on your new fancy rolel! Now how do I get involved in this pizza-based activism? Answer

Chances are you are already a pizza-based activist if you ascribe to the theory that planet earth is a giant pizza floating through space and humans are its toppings. If you’re working to make the world a better place, then you’re a pizza-based activist.

Get to know Paul DeGeorge, our new Executive Director!
Paul’s been there, done that, and got probably designed the t-shirt. We put together this timeline to show you just some of the things he’s done, both within the HPA and outside of it.

Nice infographic. It does fail to mention Paul’s role as the leading Hedwig Lives conspiracy theorist. What are you trying to hide, HPA?  thehpalliance:

@hankgreen and the Perfect Strangers perform by the light of tiki torches as night falls at Vedauwoo. #latergram

This is where our concert was yesterday. 

  1. Camera: iPhone 5s
  2. Aperture: f/2.2
  3. Exposure: 1/1001th
  4. Focal Length: 4mm

OK, so the best idea that was proposed for our tour date on July 8th was for us to play a ROCK SHOW at a ROCK FORMATION. 

So we are excited to announce that we will be playing at Vedauwoo in the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeastern Wyoming (between Laramie and Cheyenne).

The show will be at 6pm on July 8th. It will be free. Here’s all you need to know: 

Take exit 329 off I-80 for Vedauwoo Road. Turn left after you exit and follow Vadauwoo Road until it turns into a dirt road. The park entrance will be on the left. Parking is $5 per car. Enter the park and drive down the hill to the parking lot. We will be meeting at the gazebo and then hiking out to the show location. If you get there late, FOLLOW THE SPIDERS. 

The show will be acoustic and we’re a bit short on instruments. If you have a spare acoustic guitar or a glockenspiel, please bring them to the show. That would be much appreciated. 

Let’s make this a magical night!

Short line for selfies with @hankgreen at the IPRC on Portland earlier today.

Starting soon at the IPRC in Portland. 1001 SE Division St. Benefit show!!!

We currently have an off-day on the Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers tour. On July 8th we will be driving from Salt Lake City, UT to Denver, CO and we are prepared to play a show somewhere between those two cities. 

We want to do something magical. 

If you’ve got an awesome idea for where we can play and are interested in helping us organize a show, then email us at harryandthepotters(at)gmail.com. 

Here are some guidelines:

  1. The show must be magical.
  2. The location must be accessible to the public and able to accommodate at least 100 people.
  3. You have to handle the production of the show. This includes any venue-related expenses, sound production*, decoration, etc. If you will be incurring expenses in the production of the event, let us know your budget and so we can set an appropriate admission or donation price for the show.
  4. The full lineup with be: Hank Green, Driftless Pony Club, Harry and the Potters, Andrew Huang, and Rob Scallon.
  5. Acoustic shows are an option. Outdoor shows are an option. We are willing to play on a pontoon boat, in a cave, or from horseback. EVERYTHING is an option. 

Let’s collaborate and turn this into an amazing night. 

*On sound production: for the full-band experience, a vocal PA system would need to be provided.
