While LOCKN’ wasn’t able to host a full-fledged festival like in year’s past, Pete Shapiro and the organizers were able to pull together three mini-fests on concurrent weekends this August. The first of three weekends on the farm kicked off last night.
This weekend, LOCKN’ superheroes Joe Russo’s Almost Dead are playing three days along with The Slip and a special jam in the evening at Garcia’s Forest featuring John Medeski and Billy Martin. In addition to the Dead sets, JRAD is also playing an extra “JRAD Plays Other Shit” set each of the evenings. Today, JRAD busted out an early Pink Floyd set. The band kicked off the set with a monster “Echoes” followed by “Time,” “Pigs” and back to “Time.”
