    Ray Wylie Hubbard is a hoot! I have seen him a few times.

    Also, FIONN REGAN! in addition to a bunch of other great artists.

    There is sooo much great music to be seen at HSB, going to be very tired, but very pleased. It’s great to see that one of the BEST eastcoast bands – Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams – will be gracing the westcoast with their unique sound and contagious likableness…YEAH!
