Greensky Bluegrass announces the addition of more than two dozen dates to their Fall Tour. The boys from Kalamazoo will be busy criss-crossing the country performing numerous festivals this Summer and the upcoming tour will once again see the band trekking from coast to coast. The dates include three multi-night stands in Portland, OR, Telluride, CO and Kalamazoo, MI, the latter being an annual tradition of performing in the band’s hometown on Thanksgiving weekend.
Leave Austin at 4:45 a.m. Having never been up before the sun, I’m only semi-lucid and aware that it is dark outside as we drive to the airport. Land in D.C. at 11 a.m. Get picked up by friends, short reunion on the sidewalk, and then it’s time to put on the Festival Game Face. Caravan to Dover, Delaware including multiple stops for food and water, then food and Gatorade, then to look for a bathroom. Bathroom is a single Port-a-Potty behind gas station… not ready to resort to that camping life yet. Pee on grass by fence. Get yelled at by woman for peeing on her property.
Since 2009, Dubbest has been forging its own path through the heavily forested reggae landscape, expertly infusing roots traditionalism with a refreshing improvisational savvy that calls to mind not only the studio experimentation of pioneering dub producers Osbourne “King Tubby” Ruddock and Lee “Scratch” Perry but also the real-time exploration of jam bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish.
In the midst of the “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead”, Grateful Web talks to Roger McNamee of Moonalice.

GW: Hello Roger. Where are you at?

Electric Forest is amazing. It inspires plenty to say but I am going to keep it short. This festival is unapologetically immature. Nanny Nanny Boo Boo. This is the festival of the future with freaks, geeks, and oh my! Kids. Or Kidz as we used to call em in my day. They are lude, crude, young, and full of piss and vinegar. Yes.
