CA Team on the Road

Conscious Alliance team with the
STS9 West Coast Tour poster!

The first four shows of STS9’s Winter/Spring 2013 Tour were a blast and our ‘Art That Feeds’ Food Drives have been a huge success! So far we have been able to collect and distribute over 4,000 meals! The Conscious Alliance Team is now gearing up for the next four shows in Chico CA, Stateline NV, Oakland CA, and Los Angeles CA.
