Mountain Jam IV Bound

Tomorrow I'm off to Mountain Jam IV. My first music festival in the new millennium!! I'll be kicking it old school with pen and paper and won't be able to post till the Ratdog grand finale and my descent off the Mountain in the wee hours Monday. Internet and cell phone reception may be spotty at best and I decided not to drag the laptop with me. I will be armed with disposable cameras and notebooks to record the memories and energy. BFF & music teacher, Kim is bringing her drums and we have enough people at our camp to have a real drumming circle. Yes, IG is camping for the first time since I camped on Cape Cod on the eve of a hurricane during the Falmouth Road Race circa August 1993/1994. Normally my idea of camping now is a Holiday Inn.

Check-out the live blog now, and throughout the weekend here. The blog is being brought to us by music journalist, Rich Lieberman.

Tune into Sirius Jam On Channel 17 this weekend for live audio coverage each night.

Friday ~ Umphrey's McGee ~ 8pm

Saturday ~ Gov't Mule ~ 10pm

Sunday ~ Bob Weir & Ratdog ~ 7pm

Iclips will be live streamin the jam too. Check the blog for details.

There is also a live web cam up on the website as well as lots of cool photos.

I'm going to miss the first couple of acts but will definitely be there in time for the first must-see show for me Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
