Summertime And The Living Is Easy

Some recent additions to what is shaping up to be one of the most jam-packed summer concert seasons ever:

The Gathering Of The Vibes festival, held July 23-26 in Bridgeport, CT, added Crosby, Stills, and Nash to the already stellar line-up as the closing act on Sunday. If you haven’t been, this festival is deadhead heaven and, in this blogger’s opinon, the highlight of the Northeast festival season.

The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread panic announced a co-headlining tour for August and October of 2009. Thic tour promises to deliver a slew of guest appearances and cross-pollination between the bands. I can only imagine adding Jimmy Herring to the ABB arsenal to form a Haynes-Trucks-Herring trifecta.

The Disco Biscuits announced the first round of artists that will appear at this summer’s Camp Bisco 8, held July 16-18 in Mariaville, NY, including Nas and Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, STS9, Shpongle, Younger Brother, EOTO, OL, and many many more. The electronica-heavy festival continues to diversify its offering and keep things interesting.
