Good Morning (Jacket)

Posted By on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 10:36 AM

What a pleasure to wake up this morning and find this little bundle of press release joy nestled in my inbox. Higher Ground has just announced that My Morning Jacket will rock Champlain Valley Expo's Midway Lawn on Friday August 20. Tix go on sale this Friday at 11 a.m. The announcement comes on the heels of last month's news that Primus, Gogol Bordello and Heloise & the Savoir Faire will play the Fairgrounds on July 29.

Very quietly, the good folks at HG seem to be trying to curate a legitimate, mid-level outdoor venue on the Midway Lawn. Especially as the Concerts on the Green at Shelburne Museum continues to trend a little older — but then, don't we all? — this is an interesting development. Here's hoping the experiment works!

In the meantime, here's a clip of MMJ front man Jim James performing earlier this month with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. (And no, it's not representative of an MMJ show at all. It's just cool.)

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
