After looking forward to seeing Milk War for several weeks it was really exciting to have such a great turnout! The Rio Theatre was a really perfect place to have the event with a stage for the music as well as popcorn for the hungry.
Our wonderful organizer Noriko, kicked off the event with contagious enthusiasm. As people got settled in, Benjamin Keith pulled out his guitar and started entertaining us. It turns out our scheduled performer David Blair couldn’t make it so Keith had been called in last minute to fill in. We appreciated that and enjoyed his music (cd’s available here). He got a bit of a shock at one point when he asked the crowd how many people owned a cow and nearly everyone put their hand up! Goes to show you how difficult it is for city people to have access to fresh milk.
