@LMBNOLA: The Original Meters Return Friday Afternoon @SFOutsideLands
For the 2nd time this summer, the four original members of The Meters will share the stage tomorrow and perform at a Superfly Presents-produced mega-festival (after earlier this summer performing at Bonnaroo with Dr. John and Allen Toussaint). At 2:50 p.m., in San Francisco’s historic Golden Gate Park, the seminal NOLA funk band will take the Land’s End stage, and later that evening, Phish will headline that stage, and I’ve gotta think that a collaboration between the two is not entirely out of the realm of possibilities, one can dream right?
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges is now an attorney living amongst THE CALIFORNIANS in West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Pink Floyd, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, Futurebirds, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Monster Rally, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
