Post Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival 2013: 2/21-24
The lineup was FINALLY announced for the 2013 Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival ... this is happening in just a month, folks, right about ten minutes from downtown Miami. Mikey and I went last year; the setting is really gorgeous. Despite the wacky weather [sideways rain! cold!], it was a cool event with some really fine performers. Anyways, to the performer list, which is alphabeticalized for your confusion :P ...

Araka
ArtOfficial
Call 2 Rise
Donna the Buffalo
Driftwood

I mentioned this in another thread, but since this thing is only a couple days off, I thought I'd bump this thread ;)

If any of you are nearby Miami, and on the fence, cheap day tix are available for the VaKey fest on Living Social. Like $15/day cheap. Hard to beat that!

Dig it. Groove on, folks :ugeek:

Donna & Locos por Juana make it well worth a cheap ticket.

Donna the Buffalo? Sure, seen them multiple times. Awesome funky roots zydeco influenced jam. Tara Nivens and Jeb Puryear are great as a duo too. He is a vastly underated song writer.

Or was that not the question?

The Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival is put on by the fine folks that put on Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival here in the Raleigh, NC area and Fingerlakes Grassroots Festival in Trumansburg, NY. The common Denominator? Donna the Buffalo! Shakori is the closest fest to me. They have a spring and a fall fest. I've never been. Ever. Spring fest was always the same weekend as a 2 night Panic run in Raleigh. Or the weather would be really bad or whatever. This year I said I am absolutely going in the spring. Nothing can stop me. Wrong. I got stopped dead in my tracks the minute I bought Wanee tickets for the same weekend. And forget going in the fall. That is always the same weekend as Festy Experience, the Stringdusters fest, in the VA mountains. Oh well, maybe next year.

It would almost be worth going to Dade County for.
