After playing to a packed house at New York's Green Apple Music
Festival back in April, "Wetlands Preserved" is going on the road.
Director Dean Budnick has confirmed that the film will screen at
Providence's Columbus Theater as part of the Rhode Island Film Festival
next Thursday, August 10th at 6:45pm. In addition to attending the
90-minute screening, Budnick will also be appearing as part of a panel
discussion immediately following the film, but the guest of honor will be
Wetlands founder Larry Bloch. Other guests are expected to attend as well.
For more information on the film (including an additional screening next
month in Colorado), visit wetlandspreserved.com.
As the summer tour draws to a close - taking with it highlights such as
the resurrection of not one, but two fan requests ("Traveler
Suite", which was played but once at Red Rocks, and "Make My Way", which
has appeared several times since then)- the fall tour continues to take
shape. The band has announced several new shows since the last round of
announcements, and the early word is that the tour will begin in early
October around a date in Lake Havasu City, AZ. After two more dates in
mid-October, the theater shows come fast and furious in November -
recently-added dates include November 11th at the State Theatre in Falls
Church, VA; a November 14th date in Red Bank, NJ that marks their first
show there in fifteen years, and a November 21st show in Stamford, CT -
one of John's many hometowns.
Finally, if you haven't had the chance to catch the band live yet this
year, AT&T will be webcasting hours of free, uninterrupted live streaming
coverate from Lollapalooza on August 4th through the 6th. Blues Traveler
goes on stage at 7:30 on Sunday the 6th, but there's no telling where John
might pop up, so tune in at blueroom.att.com/events/lollapalooza.php
to catch all the music.
