The 23rd edition of the High Sierra Music Festival is just over two months away (63 days, 8 hours…) and today the organizers rolled out their always-important late night schedule to go along with the impressive headliners (Robert Plant, Thievery Corporation, Primus) slated for July 4th weekend. Late night shows are the cornerstone of any festival and High Sierra is no different. Some of my most cherished memories in Quincy have occurred inside the Music Hall between midnight and 4am, including My Morning Jacket’s half-empty gig in 2006 and Dr. Dog’s late-night in 2009 when the band was just hitting their stride in the Funk n’ Jamhouse.
This year attendees will be treated to late nights by Leftover Salmon, moe., Infamous Stringdusters, Gramatik, Papadosio, Emancipator, Pimps of Joytime, The Melodic, Orgone and more. Check out the late-night schedule and final artist additions after the jump.
