ELM at THE GATHERING Food Truck Rally Friday, August 1st in Hampdizzle 21211

No Comments

We are beyond excited to play The Gathering food truck rally this coming Friday, August 1st. The last event in Federal Hill was so much fun that we can’t wait to do it again. The food choices are sublime, and the fact that this one’s right on our old stomping grounds (HAMPDEN, 211) makes it even sweeter. If you attend, please drop by and say hello! Maybe even pick up a shirt or a CD. We have lots of them!

Be good to each other, and love your mother…nature.

Mad Tea Party Jam Recap

No Comments

WOW! What a great weekend we had in Hedgesville, West Virginia at The Mad Tea Party Jam. First of all, the place is gorgeous. Rolling hills sprawled out over 300 acres with the Potomac River flowing right through it, 2 large fish filled ponds, and a super steep mountain ridge about 3/4 of a mile beyond the trees that looked surreal under moonlit clouds. Big ups to Taco and Elise Olmstead for their tireless promotion, vision and hard work. They are lovely people, and we were honored to be a part of their festival. ELM (Electric Love Machine) played a 2am late night set on the main stage Thursday night followed by a 4am scorcher Friday night/sat morning. we were so happy to see so many dancing bodies and smiling faces in the crowd; great turnouts at both performances. It was Steve’s first 2 gigs with his new drums, and we felt the thunder for sure!

We’d like to give props to all the new bands/friends we got to know, and some of our old bands, friends and phamily that put on killer performances and created the physical and visual art that made this event so special. Papadosio, Dopapod, Turkuaz, TAUK, DELTAnine, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Moogatu, Jordan August Band, Proper Playground, THE MOON LIFE, Kati Visions Jewelry, Luminary Stage Design, Liz Hu Art, Rene Weber, Harrison Crawford. Great job by everyone. We love ya!

Here are some cool pics from Friday’s late night set on the bus stage by the lovely Megan Wood.
