The heavily rumored Dave Matthews Band festival appearances are starting to get some more press. They are rumored to be in Atlantic City at Bader Field on June 24-26th according to

The Electric Forest Festival headlined by String Cheese Incident is taking place in Rothbury, MI. The lineup seems to be a bit all over the place but diversity is a good thing so take it or leave it.

The Rock n Roll Resort festival is kicking off the festival season. This unique festival combines the cost of your hotel (all shows are held on the hotel grounds) with your admission to the festival. Next to a state park this festival offers amazing scenic views and outdoor opportunities while being able to sleep in comfort and style. This festival is also a good way to start into the spring/summer musical spirit as it’s being held April 1-3 in Kerhonkson, NY.

Bisco Inferno is back again this year at Red Rocks. Come get your untz on in one of the nations most scenic parks!

If Bisco Inferno wasn’t enough untz and electronica for you then make sure you check out The Governors Ball Music Festival.

Now that we have all the festival announcements out of the way, save the official Phish announcement of Wakins Glen, let’s get to some other news. has starting tracking and posting Sideshows from the different members of Phish. Basically this will keep track of setlists from the personal projects of the members of Phish. The initiative is still a work in progress but we look forward to it. Thanks to everyone at for all the work you put in, it’s truly appreciated! Also, they have a sweet Cactus contest running right now.

Target has starting selling a womens Phish shirt. Surprisingly enough it appears PT has not yet got wind of this as there are no douchebag comments left on the reviews. Either that or Target regulates their comments and reviews very strictly. In any event happy shopping ladies!

We’ll see you next week on lot!


TWoL 32: After Midnight

After a brief BBQ hiatus Nick returns and when we listen to the voicemails we find out that he has either a fan or a stalker. You’ll have to listen for yourself and decide which on it is.

This week we have Danny as our guest from The Digital Buddhas which is an organization for The Disco Biscuits fans who like to see their shows while remaining drug and alcohol free. He also recently attended Bisco Inferno and gives a great review of the shows and the lot scene in general. Turns out he saw our good friend Neil from the Coventry Music blog, it really is a small world after all.

The clock is ticking as I type this blog post. Right now there is only 1.5 hours left to submit your lot stories to win the Alpine travel package for the Phish shows. So if you’ve been waiting till the last-minute now is the time to get your entry in.

We received over 20 voicemails this weekend from our listeners, thank you everyone who left a message. Due to time restrictions we could only play 1o of them but thank you again to everyone who took the time to leave us a message, keep them coming!

Thank you to CID Entertainment who was our sponsor for this month and is the reason we’re able to give away the Alpine travel package. We’re currently looking for other sponsors, if you’re interested please contact at and we’ll be sure to get back to you right away.
