Straight from the source (thanks Ed), RAQ will be hosting a festival next weekend. I’ll be in North Carolina, but there’s no reason that you shouldn’t go.

RAQ Lew-au in August
Vermontband RAQ (who have IT) will hold an Amy’s Farm-like free festival — a two-day party of camping and music in the spirit of a festival on a magnificent farm — August 19-20 in New Woodstock, NY, including Jazz Mandolin Project, DJ Logic, Arianna Claire and Friends, The Joint Chiefs, Trusty, and Optical Delusion.” from

Anyone going? Send us a review when you get back; I’d love to hear how it went. Also, look for some RAQ in an upcoming Jamcast or two. I’m looking to get some high quality soundboards of some of their most recent stuff. From what I’ve heard, I think I might enjoy this band a lot more than I currently know…
