‘Tis been confirmed and reported on Trey’s website:
Medeski, Martin and Wood will play a full set opening for Trey on August 5 at the Festival Pier @ Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA.
It’s fairly safe to assume that Trey’s opening act will make his 70 Volts look like amateurs. As much as I love to Trey-bash as a joke, I’m not kidding about the fact that MMW is the better band performing at Penn’s Landing. Incidentally, I caught the Jam on the River at the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing, and it’s one helluva venue.
