Two powerhouse bands in one night made for an incredible evening of music at the Park West Chicago on 2/17/2018. Night two of the 2-night run was a packed house filled with gawking jaws agape at the Grammy-winning Infamous Stringdusters together with the loveable Leftover Salmon. It was one of those shows that leaves you knowing what music should look and sound like.
Americana originals Leftover Salmon announce their new album, Something Higher, coming May 4, 2018. With the bands newer members taking more of a lead on songwriting, and Leftover Salmon's continued focus on groove-based song building, the new album has new sounds, new ideas, and a fresh take on the genre.
Two progressive bluegrass titans shared a co-billing last weekend at The UC Theatre in Berkeley, California. Infamous Stringdusters hosted a diverse two-night run beginning last Thursday with Keller Williams and Grateful Gospel. Fans that evening were treated to an array of Grateful Dead classics augmented by a joint group of Keller and the Dusters.
Leftover Salmon released a song from their forthcoming album several weeks ahead of the anticipated release in response to the terrorist attack at protests in Charlottesville, VA. Aptly titled "House of Cards," the song is a reaction to the recent political climate and the direct impact of the nation's leaders on actions of unsatisfied civilians. They also released an accompanying video that shows powerful footage from the last several months in the mainstream political media.
Today, Leftover Salmon announced a July 31st public on-sale for their 3rd annual Stanley Hotel 3-day event March 9-11, 2018. This coming Monday at NOON MST tickets and reservations at the Stanley will become available to public, though past ticket buys have been able to secure their spots for over a week. There are several other area hotels besides the Stanley available for lodging during our event that are taking reservations now.
Special guests, activities, contests and more to be announced soon!
