Furthur Festival got started with a bang last night with an All-Star Jam featuring (get ready): Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Larry Campbell, Jeff Chimenti, Joe Russo, Mark Karan, Jackie Greene, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, and Teresa Williams. Phew! That cast of characthers definitly deserves ‘All Star Billing’. My one complaint – no John K. aka ‘Faux Jerry’ all night long, and Jackie Greene playing all set on Guitar, Bass, and Keys… In any case, I can’t wait to hear the recording of this one and downloads, vids, pics from the whole weekend will be posted as soon as available. Get ready to go Furthur than you’ve gone before!

Bisco Unplugged

The Disco Biscuits celebrated their arrival in Colorado today with a special stealth acoustic show that officially  kicked off Bisco Inferno 2010 Weekend. This run of shows will be the first time Jon ‘The Barber’ Gutwillig will be back on guitar full time, after his unfortunate self-inflicted wrist injury. Hopefully today’s acoustic set was a good warm up for Barber for tonight’s show at Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO and tomorrow night at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. The big show of course is on Saturday the 29th at Red Rocks, and promises to be an epic Bisco throwdown if they ever was to be one. Inferno’s line-up breaks down like this:

Sat 5/29/10 Red Rocks – Morrison, CO
Doors: 4:00pm
Pnuma Trio: 5:00pm-6:00pm

Story of the World

Phish Festival in Limestone 8/27-8/29?

While completely unconfirmed and unsubstantiated, the following rumor popped up today right here on Welcome To Now. I received this comment from a reader in response to previous rumors posted here about Phish’s 2010 Summer Tour plans:

“Just confirmed permits have been submitted for Loring Airforce Base Limestone ME. Late Aug. 27/28/29. The town is already asking for volunteers from the towns folk for a large 3 day concert. Hummmmm.. I wonder who that could be!”

Any other heads out there here similar rumblings out of Limestone?

IT Festival - Loring Air Force Base, Limestone ME - 2003

While this is certainly late in the season for a summer festival announcement, recent news that Phish will NOT return to Indio in 2010 does make this scenario more likely.
