Week 8 started off with an amazing announcement, as has every week before this week!

This week’s additions to the lineup are:

Lake Street Dive – YES!!!  I have been dying to see this band (I’ve waited too long to buy tickets for each local show for the past two years), especially since seeing the documentary about the New York concert of the music of “Inside Llewyn Davis”.

Leif Vollebekk – a Canadian singer-songwriter with whom I am not familiar but look forward to hearing him

Deer Tick – this is another Americana band that I’ve been very interested to see and now I’ll get my chance

The Lonesome Trio – a bluegrass group of which the banjo-playing actor Ed Helms is a member (I’ve seen Ed play and think he’s fabulous)

The lineup, so far, includes:

Friday:  The Devil Makes Three, Band of Horses, Death Vessel, Jenny Lewis, Phox, Robert Hunter, Reignwolf, Jimmy Cliff, Lake Street Dive

Saturday:  Shakey Graves, The Oh Hellos, Benjamin Booker, Nickel Creek, Shovels and Rope, Houndmouth, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, The Milk Carton Kids, Aoife O’Donovan, Willie Watson, Puss n Boots, Lucius, Deer Tick

Sunday:  Hurray for the Riff Raff, Mavis Staples, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Trampled by Turtles, Gregory Alan Isakov, Lucero, Caitlin Rose, Conor Oberst, Dawes, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Leif Vollebekk, The Lonesome Trio
