Columbia breakout, Sony/ATV writer and Texas native Leon Bridges cozies up with some folks from his pubco (including the killer sync team) and reveals that he'll be performing at a benefit for Lone Star State Senate Candidate Beto O'Rourke. "But I thought Ted Cruz said that guy would outlaw BBQ and everybody in Texas would have to eat tofu," queried SVP A&R/Head of Research & Analytics Jake Fain. "I don't eat tofu unless it's been killed in a humane way that's consistent with the laws of Kashrut," declared SVP and Co-Head of West Coast A&R Jennifer Knoepfle. Seen hoping to break their Yom Kippur fast very soon are (l-r) Knoepfle, VP Creative Marketing Film & TV Maggie Martin, Fain, Bridges, SVP Creative Marketing Film & TV Wende Crowley and sync superheroes Christopher Hogenson, Sebastian Platner, Jesse Pinkham and Randy Shefer.

The occasion for the pic was Bridges' sold-out Greek Theatre show in L.A. on 9/11; the O'Rourke benefit, headlined by Willie Nelson, takes place in Austin on 9/29 and is free; more info here.
