If you haven’t heard yet, read it and weep. The Disco Biscuits have officially sold out the second night of their two day run in Washington DC next month. On July 31st the band will play the 9:30 Club for two back-2-back shows leading up to their headlining performance at Gathering of the Vibes. This also marks the first time they’ve played the venue in two years. According to the fans themselves, this club witnessed some of the most highly regarded performances in the group’s history. From what we’ve heard in the recordings, their shows in New York City last weekend were top notch as well. This band doesn’t tour by themselves like they used to, and it’s not often you get an opportunity to see them outside a festival for an old-fashioned run. After these two shows, they’ll take the stage with Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann of the The Greatful Dead for a collaborative performance. If you have a burning desire to see this band again, you know you don’t want to sleep on those last tickets!
Some Bonus Advice: Seth Troxler will be playing after the show at the U-Street Music Hall on July 31st! Plan your epic night accordingly friends.

Bella Terra Music Festival just announced its lineup for the 5th annual year of the event. What started out as a mediocre concert set on the highway of Route 7 in Massachusetts has turned into a pretty impressive convention of diverse music and art. Located in rural Stephentown, NY for its 4th year running, each year has topped the last. Last year saw super group Suckerpunch(with members of The Disco Biscuits, Brother’s Past, and The New Deal) headline the festival with an attendance of over 4,000 music goers. Unlike some stale festivals in the area, these organizers are bringing in more entertainment, better music, and bigger crowds each consecutive year, forming their own personal brand in a very flooded event category. The season is upon us ladies and gentlemen. Between Camp Bisco, The Big Up, and Bella Terra, upstate New York is taking the limelight with Northeastern festivals in 2013. Bella Terra is located at Gardener’s Farm in Stephentown, NY and runs from August 15-18th. Mark your calendars and ready your camping gear, this summer is going to be HUGE…

Electric Forest Music Festival announced its second round of artists, including exclusive curated events from top acts around the country. Adding some serious flavor to the weekend will be Orchard Lounge, Eskmo, Luke the Knife, Polish Ambassador, and Nigel Hall to name a few. The initial lineup was less than sparkling, but since then the heap of musicians( including super group Suckerpunch) that have found their way to the bill have given it a substantial amount of character. With the heavy addition of 40+ acts, the festival’s lineup is shaping up to be one of the years most diverse. The curated events are especially appealing, particularly the Fools Gold Clubhouse featured at the Tripolee Stage. The Brooklyn based label will be bringing you sets from Danny Brown, OLIVER, Just Blaze, Caze, Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers, Party Supplies and award-winning turntablist A-TRAK.
