As previously mentioned, moe. pulled off its annual snoe.down festival up in Lake Placid, NY, this past weekend. The festival included some ‘winter’ activities, a bunch of sets by moe., and plenty of help (and sit-ins) from various bands like the Disco Biscuits, Tea Leaf Green, the Slip, Brothers Past, and Little Feat.

Hot off the band’s successful winter festival, they’ve apparently let the cat out of the bag for their annual summer festival: moe.down. This year, the moe.down is slated for Labor Day weekend in Turin, NY and is already set to include the following bands:

Medeski, Scofield, Martin, & Wood
J.J. Grey & Mofro
Ryan Adams
the Meat Puppets
Amos Lee
Ryan Montbleau Band
the Brakes
….w/ more to be announced

That’s an interesting initial line-up….especially the Meat Puppets! It’ll be cool to see what other bands they add, but anything with MSMW will be solid in my book.
