It's all happening this Wednesday, August 1st at 7:00pm local time.

Jam band juggernauts Phish are in the midst of the West Coast leg of their extensive Summer 2018 tour. Fans have been wowed by the sheer diversity of setlists, unexpected arrangements, and intriguing chemistry. After the triumphant Bakers Dozen run at Madison Square Garden last summer, the quartet demonstrated their desire to explore far-off realms and keep their repertoire both expansive and tight.

Moon Hooch's new EP 'Light It Up,’ released earlier this year, features three tracks ("Acid Mountain," "Light It Up" and "Growing Up") that quickly became staples of the Brooklyn-based trio’s live shows. The band has now announced plans to release all three songs each on a different color limited edition 7-inch vinyl. Due August 24 via Hornblow Recordings, the A-side will present the studio version, while the B-side will be a corresponding live recording of the song.

The Japandroids, the two-man band from Vancouver, Canada consisting of Brian King on guitar and vocals and David Prowse on drums and vocals, wowed an appreciative crowd on Sunday night at the Pitchfork Music Festival.  I hope you were there to see their amazing performance.  If you closed your eyes, you thought you were hearing a six-piece band.  The intensity and pure noise of the Japandroids are overwhelming.

Texas-native Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears return with a new trio of gritty, punked-up blues and rock influenced tracks in anticipation of an extensive North American tour. Recorded in their hometown of Austin, with Grammy award winning producer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse), the group have unfolded lead single “Culture Vulture” plus “Face In The Scene” and “Girls on Bikes” which are now available through all major streaming services.

Bill and The Belles announce their first full-length studio album, DreamSongs, Etc . From the foothills of Blue Ridge in Johnson City, Tennessee, Bill and The Belles captivate fans with rich vocal harmonies and simple catchy melodies, built on a strong foundation of love for early American music. The forthcoming album, recorded in just two days inside a beautiful old farmhouse in the rolling hills of Southeast Virginia, is set for release on August 24, 2018 on Jalopy Records .

When Australian Alex Cameron began his late afternoon set at the Pitchfork Music Festival on Sunday if you didn't know anything about him and his band, you may have thought it was curious that a "lounge singer" was playing at Pitchfork.  You should have known that Cameron is best known for taking on the personality of a failed entertainer, both as part of his live performance and in the music that he has released.

The Guess Who is responsible for countless rock classics, which still retain a major presence on rock radio - “American Woman,” “No Time,” “These Eyes,” etc. The band is set to return on September 14th with their latest album, ‘The Future IS What It Used To Be’, released via Cleopatra Records (available in CD, Vinyl, and Digital formats).

Produced as an annual celebration of and fundraiser for Mount Tamalpais State Park by Roots & Branches Conservancy, the annual one-day festival has raised $175,000 for Mount Tam in just its first three years. Last year, San Francisco Magazine named Sound Summit as Best Festival of the North Bay in its annual Best of the Bay issue, citing its quality and intimacy.
