Jack Johnson is one lean, green, music-playing machine, and he’s about to prove it!

On October 27th, “En Concert” will officially be released — a film chronlocing one leg of Johnson’s 2008 “Sleep Through the Static” tour.

Here are the Razz we were pretty much obsessed with the Static tour, thanks to their use of biodiesel buses, coaches and generators and their above and beyond recycling and composting efforts.  The tour also offset more than 4,000 metric tons of carbon through donations to renewable energy sources and programs that save jungles and forests.

About the film, director Emmett Malloy said:

“Getting a shot of him is kind of similar to getting a shot of the Loch Ness Monster; it’s a rare occurrence. Surprisingly, he let our cameras really join him on this tour. I just knew that I better keep a guitar or surfboard in his hands, because with either of those weapons he seemed to never know we were there.”

Visit Jack Johnson’s website to pre-order a deluxe edition of the film, a CD and a 60-page booklet of photos from the tour. All the proceeds will go to fund the Kokua Hawaii Foundation and the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation — an organization that supports environmental, art, and music education around the globe.

Keep up the great work, Jack!
