Dark Star Orchestra
Gathering of the Vibes 2007 has finalized the lineup for the 12th Annual Music, Camping and Arts Festival, taking place August 9-12 at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT. The diverse genres of musicians and bands performing on four stages include Legendary Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir and Ratdog, five time Grammy Award Winner Buddy Guy, Latin Rockers Los Lobos, New Orleans based Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Bass Virtuoso Les Claypool, Roots Reggae Favorites, The Wailers, Southern rock
After another day of great music and great weather, the rain attacked STS9 and once again stopped the headliner's set a little early. Overall, it was a beautiful day of music and dancing on the river. This festival is quietly one of the best small festivals that I have attended in a long while. The food was affordable and delicious. There was variety and quality, even using Philadelphia's own Amoroso rolls for sandwiches. Yum! In addition, the vendors were diverse and special as well.

Where else but at a Dark Star Orchestra show does the cryptical reciting and mind-changing on years and dates in the mid seventies occur with such frequency.
Sometime in the summer.
Each month is cause for consideration as some pattern of songs specific to a fall, a summer, a spring of a given year passes through memory.
