Eighth Annual moe.down Jams Ryan Adams, Meat Puppets Into Lineup

Perennial heir-apparent to the corroding jamband throne abdicated by Phish, moe. still have their air of hospitality about ‘em and, presumably, their dedicated base of mobile moe.rons (their term, not ours!), ’cause the band has just announced the date for this year’s three-day Bongaroo. The moe.down will go down for three nights (8/31-9/2) at the Snow Ridge Ski area in Turin, NY.

In addition to moe.’s six sets over the weekend, those making the trek will hear from Ryan Adams, Meat Puppets, Amos Lee, The Brakes, and Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood (Aside: Did John join the lineup permanently? MSMW doesn’t have the same ring to it.) Any moe. fans out there? Anyone ever actually hear them? We remember “Rebubula” — with its harmonizing-guitar head sounding like a bpm-boosted Allman’s cut — but beyond that our memory is cashed.

Presale for the moe.down starts 4/1 at moe.org.
