Weekly Roundup

Signs signs everywhere are signs

I was reading through my feeds sometime yesterday when I caught the coverage that JamBase put up on Jam in the ‘Dam ’08, the festival featuring Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Tea Leaf Green, and Dark Star Orchestra that just finished up mid-March. It got me all reminiscent of my trip to Jam in the ‘Dam ’06. At any rate, the photos look amazing and I’m sure it was a fun time had by all. I can’t wait to see who they announce for next year’s lineup.

Feel free to ponder that while I get all reminiscent of the past week here on LMB…

  • NOLA Jazz Festival | 2008 Lineup and Schedule
    Man, we’ve gotten buried with a such a barrage of non-stop festival announcements that we’ve neglected some our favorite festival mainstays. Case in point, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. This festival — which has pretty much set the…
  • High Sierra Music Festical | 2008 Lineup
    Yet another festival mainstay that we’ve neglected thus far in 2008: the High Sierra Music Festival. Don’t worry HSMF, you still have a place in our hearts. This year, HSMF is slated for July 3 – 6, 2008, in…
  • Lymbyc Systym | Early 2008 Tour Dates

  • SXSW 2008 | South By Southwest’s Most Valuable Player

  • Think Fast, Steely Dan | Summer Tour 2008
    The iconic and all too underrated Steely Dan is embarking on another summer tour that will pass through almost a dozen cities. The highlight of the tour is almost certainly the three night run in New York City’s Beacon…
  • Phish Friday | 7/25/92; Stowe, VT
    For my first effort at a Phish Friday, I dug deep into my binders of discs for something from the earlier years. In the Summer of 1992, Phish was on the cusp of breaking huge. Not yet headlining arena tours…
