Last summer, my biggest surprise was SAMAPALOOZA. My old friend Andrew Keating had asked me to play at a festival out on Atherton Dr, in Novato. I agreed, and arrived to find a secluded plot of oak and olive trees, a big pond, and a human scene of debauched bliss. There were 10 bands, lovely food and drink, a big parachute over a big stage…let’s just say these folks go BIG.
This year’s lineup is diverse (and killer), and for the first time people are going to be camping. For my part, I’m bringing a band (of strictly monsters!!) It’ll be good to play with some great musicians, something I’ve missed a lot since the Crymuscles went dormant last fall.
