To make transportation to the Fairgrounds convenient, a free Shuttle Bus to the event will be available on the half-hour. Pick-up begins at the West entrance of the law school at 7:30 p.m. and will make one downtown stop outside the Hilton Hotel entrance on 7th Avenue before it arrives at the Fairgrounds. The final bus leaves the Fairgrounds at midnight. If cycling is your preferred mode of transportation, bike racks will be available.

All great events have hearty food, drink, and entertainment. At the PIELC Celebration, we will have all three! Enjoy some hors d'oeuvres provided by Wild Duck Catering and drinks from Falling Sky, cider from 2 Towns, and other outstanding local breweries.

PIELC is also very excited for our two entertainers, GrooveTooth and the Alder Street All Stars. GrooveTooth is a one man, one guitar act. Nik Kemmer grew up in Kensington, MD, just north of DC. He has spent much of his time pursuing music in the nations capitol, pines of the south, great north plains, Rocky Mountains, and has landed in Eugene. His original material brushes up on a few styles but mainly leans toward indie-folk. His main influences are Tallest Man on Earth, Fleet Foxes, David Byrne, and Bob Dylan. Visit for more info.

Alder Street All Stars will play the main event. Their sassy violin, thumpin' bass, and chirpy banjo will have you tapping your feet in no time! Based out of the Campbell Club Student Cooperative in Eugene, the Alder Street All Stars came together in late 2006 to play a fundraiser aimed at helping a member of their community facing deportation. Received well by the audience and having a good time playing together, the band kept it up. Radical politics, outlaw culture, and a passion for life are at the core of their work. The All Stars have been noted for their unique brand of honkytonk music which draws on a wide range of influences stemming from the diversity of the members' backgrounds.

We like to reduce waste wherever possible, so please bring your own glass for beer. If you forget, you are welcome to purchase a 2013 PIELC pint glass for $6 at the event! Don't worry though, we'll have stickers so glasses aren't exchanged accidentally! With the help of Pedal Power, cyclists from the crowd will fuel the energy needs of our bands. Check out their website at for details.

So, please come and help us celebrate the 31st annual PIELC, EARTH: Too Big to Fail. Mingle with fellow environmental attorneys, activists, students, and professors. Don't forget your dancing shoes!
