I glanced at the schedule for Saturday and I'm pumped about seeing Newton Faulkner > Mike Gordon > Steve Winwood. Everything else is gravy that day.
Sunday's highlight should be Rodrigo y Gabriela > Grace Potter.
The biggest bummer is Tea Leaf Green vs. The New Mastersounds. Why can't they be playing at different times?!??!
And Dave Matthews Band to close? Ummm... no. I'm trying to convince the Joker to start the after party early with a blowout at his house.
We will be covering the event in multiple ways. Stay tuned for Coventry's coverage of the event.
