The electronica jamband Lotus kicked off a blazing two night run at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, Pa last Friday night. These shows were rescheduled from December 2021 because of complications with covid-19, and were originally part of their year end run. The Philadelphia based squad brought a clever mix of new and old songs, as well as a bust out, much to the crowd's delight.

The Westville Music Bowl in New Haven, CT was once again the hot spot in the Northeast for outstanding jam bands, as Pigeons Playing Ping Pong delivered a fiery evening of their signature psychedelic funk. Connecticut’s finest were on hand to elevate the festivities, including supporting artist Eggy and guitar virtuoso Tim Palmeri.
