First of all, the city of Buffalo, NY is offering up free shows this summer at Buffalo Place. Mike Gordon will be one of many artists playing for Thursday at the Square concert series. Also on the slate are... Galactic, Disco Biscuits, Yonder Mountain String Band, Mickey Hart and Tea Leaf Green.
Since we're on a Mike kick today, here's some good news for all you hardcore Cactus fans. Mike Gordon will be releasing a solo album on August 5th. It's called The Green Sparrow and includes Trey and Page (but no Fish!) in addition to Chuck Leavell from the Allman Brothers, Bill Kreutzmann from the Grateful Dead, Ivan Neville from New Orleans and several horn players from Antibalas.
Here's Mike Gordon's tour schedule as he hits the summer festival circuit...
