We’re in the midst of serious festival overload here at LMB and we’ve got tons of posts to get up (including our awesome set of photos from Rothbury), but first I wanted to see if I could help out a friend of mine who’s looking for a ride to Northwest String Summit. If you’re going, drop a comment and let me know if you have an extra spot in your car. Gas and goodies to the kind soul that helps my friend out; he’s a good dude, I promise.

Read on for the lineup. This festival is all about the Yonder Mountain String Band, playing all three nights Friday through Sunday; what a fan’s dream. I bet that’ll be awesome. Help my buddy see the awesomeness.
