So D bought us tickets to the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Tour in Gutherie, OK the day they released the tickets. I need to see Mumford people! I have been excited for months to see these guys live and I was even more excited when I heard Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros were playing as well as Alabama Shakes. What could be better right?!
Loufest in St. Louis has quickly become a tradition for the city. It brings major acts to the stage in Forest Park. And of course it is the SAME weekend as the stopover tour. I am completely bummed that I can’t attend this awesome festival in my own town!!! Forest Park is a great backdrop for some amazing performers and I know it is going to be an awesome show. This year the festival is bringing to the stage the killers, icona pop, , the mowgli’s, and edward sharpe the magnetic zeros and Alabama shakes (they must be taking a fast bus from OK to STL—maybe I could hop on).
STL has a good music scene that isn’t always recognized so it is pretty awesome that Lou Fest is bringing out some big names for some great publicity. Fun fact: the guy that started Lou Fest lives a street over from me and I met him a couple months ago.
I am going to try to get one of my STL friends who is attending the festival to report back to the jammers. c.
Did Steve Miller die or something?
Get this…I tune in to check out the live stream Bonnaroo has going on because I’m feeling incredibly nostalgic…and maybe a little pathetically lame on a Saturday night…and both Gov’t Mule AND Jack Johnson cover Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker.” Steve Miller, need I remind you, is my main man. Stop sending me mixed messages, Bonnaroo. Stop it right meow.
