Killer Festival Coming to Danville
So I'm preparing for Summer Camp here in a few weeks, and since it's starting to be festival season I thought I'd share the good word about the inaugural Phases of the Moon Festival coming to Kennekuk Park. There is already quite a bit of buzz about this event, and after one look at the lineup it's not hard to see why: two nights of Widespread Panic (and the rumor on the streets is there's a possibility for three nights of the String Cheese Incident--don't take my word for it, it's just the buzz around town), Bob Weir and Ratdog, the wonderfully delicious enigma that is Railroad Earth, the incredible Tedeschi Trucks Band, masters of soul-infused blues Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds (one of my personal favorite groups of all time), the world-renowned Gov't. Mule, Leftover Salmon with special guest Bill Payne of Little Feat, the extra-funky Galactic, ultimate shredders Kung Fu, bluegrass stalwarts Cornmeal, Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Toubab Krewe....you guys, seriously, I could go on and on about this festival. Complete with next-to-car camping, the $230 seems pretty reasonable for the whole event. You can check out the website here: http://phasesofthemoonfestival.com/. With no dubstep on the lineup, this promises to be one of the funkiest, dirtiest, most jamtastic weekends we've seen in these parts for a long time. Here's a few links to some examples of what you can expect:
That's just a brief sampling. I will have more postings about this festival; as my friends could tell you, I just won't shut up about it. So until next time, keep your ears open.
