A classically trained musician since childhood and son of an on-again, off-again jazz trumpeter, young Luck-Ones approach to the music that would grow to be his life’s calling has always been dynamic in it’s approach. The poignant social commentary and positive rhyme schemes he gained from being raised in a studious middle-class Muslim family are balanced out by a biting street perspective derived from real life experiences that caused him to spend over half-a decade in state prison.

The Family Crest is an orchestral indie collective based in San Francisco. Beginning as a collaborative recording project in 2008, the group evolved by 2010 into a six-piece band with over 250 ¬ËœExtended Family Members' who participate in recordings, live performances, and other media and art projects. Infusing rock, classical, folk, and jazz styles, Seismic-Sound states, ¬Å“Their songs can vary quite widely from symphonic, to cabaret, to a flat-out rock and roll ruckus. It is hard to say which place they fall into most often, and given the instrumentation it's easy to think it might be a little too down tempo, but have no doubt when the last note is played it is clear that above all else they are a rock band at heart.¬Â

Stories of Trust: Calling for Climate Recovery
Monday, March 5, 2012
6:30 p.m. | FREE | All Ages
@ Natural Capital Center, 721 NW Ninth Avenue

On Monday, March 5th, the Crag Law Center, Our Children's Trust, and WITNESS will present four short films and the opportunity to meet with an award-winning filmmaker and the youth plaintiffs and attorneys behind the quest to save our home from the current climate catastrophe.

In May, 2011, youth around the world demanded government protect their futures by joining with attorneys to file groundbreaking climate change lawsuits using the Public Trust Doctrine. The films are part of Stories of TRUST: Calling for Climate Recovery, a 10-part series featuring the voices of daring youth from across the country who pursued lawsuits and asked the ruling generation to hear their climate change concerns. Former general counsel at the Environmental Protection Agency, Roger Martella calls the litigation a remarkable legal action and ¬Å“comprehensive strategy¬Â¦to encourage this public action to ultimately reduce greenhouse gases.¬Â

Ecotrust is sponsoring the Portland premier of these films, which will be screened at 6:30 pm at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Building in NW Portland.  Free pizza and complimentary refreshments will be served courtesy of Lucky Lab Brew Pub and Ninkasi Brewing Company.

The films were produced by the international human rights organization WITNESS in partnership with Our Children’s Trust and the iMatter Campaign.

Guest speakers will include youth plaintiffs Kelsey Juliana (Oregon) Nelson Kanuk (Alaska) and John Thiebes (Montana), WITNESS filmmakers Kelly Matheson and Christi Cooper-Kuhn, and attorneys Tanya Sanerib and Julia Olson and meteorologist Shawn Weagle.  In TRUST Alaska 17-year-old Nelson Kanuk speaks about the problems facing his community in the Arctic:  ¬Å“The main problem we are facing in the northern reaches of the world is that winter is coming late.  This causes increased erosion due to permafrost melt, increased flooding due to the warmer temperatures, and intensified storms because the sea ice forms later in the season and is unable to provide a natural barrier for our coastal communities. This affects our communities as we could lose our homes, our culture and our way of life.¬Â
