Toubab Krewe in VT this Weekend

Two chances to catch Toubabe Krewe this weekend in Northern Vermont. On Friday, August 4th, they'll be playing the 9:45-11:30 pm slot at the North East Kingdom Music Festival (NEKMF) in East Albany, VT. I caught their set last year (which was followed by the intense and engaging Saul Williams) at this totally hippified event. This was my first foray into the world of summer music festivals since I had become mr america (husband, father, working for the man, house, picket fence, suv, etc, etc). It was startling to realize how far removed I had become from the "fatty veggie burrito" days of yore. It was fun none-the-less. And thankfully my kid didn't end up with lice.

If you aren't too keen on the hippies and don't want to throw down 80 bucks, then head over to Burke Mountain for the 1st Annual Umbrellafest on Sunday, August 6th. Announced just this week, Umbrellafest is a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering communities of strong women, supported families and safe homes (you guessed it, it's called Umbrella). This family oriented event starts around 3 pm with some local music, barbeque, and family activities (Bounce House, Face Painting, and Waterslide - oh my!). Toubab Krewe will perform outside of the Sherburne Base Lodge starting at 7:00 pm. $10 Adults, $5 Children or $25 Family.

The Krewe did a pretty decent interview and live performance a month ago on NPR's World Cafe. Click here for the page with links to the whole session and live studio tracks. The version of Roy Forrester is righteous, brother.

    Did you see that Langdon Street shut down this weekend due to the NEKMF? I don't know if it's because all of the employees are going or all of the patrons are going but it's gone dark this weekend. That cracked me up.

    How many shows a year does TK play? It has to be over a hundred.

    I had no idea what NEKMF even meant. That is incredible that they closed for that.
