We just caught wind of the Slow Food Rocks, a small festival in San Francisco the weekend after Outside Lands. I’ll be heading there to see Medeski, Martin & Wood for the first time ever — how is that even possible that I have not seen these guys before — and I hope to get more familiar with some of the other artists on the bill, none of which I spend much time listening to.
