moe.down Swaps Perry Farrell in for Ryan Adams
Though the always erratic Ryan Adams has bowed out of Turin, NYs the eighth annual moe.down., the veteran touring quintet has confirmed that Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party will appear in his place. Not only are the members of the group fans of Farrells work with Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros, but moe. recently played a mainstage set at the alt-rock icons festival, Lollapalooza.
‘We are thrilled to have Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party on board for moe.down,’ moe.‘s Al Schnier said in a statement. ‘Jane’s Addiction was a huge influence when moe. first got together. Jane’s had a unique way of taking heavy alternative music and making it very psychedelic. And of course, Perry’s Lollapalooza was very influential on us. While moe.down is on a different scale & perspective, the vibe is the same – music, camping, vendors, non-profits, a kids tent & parade – all borne out of our experiences as fans of Lollapalooza.’
As previously reported, moe.down will be held from August 31-September 2 at Turin, NYs Snow Ridge Ski area. In addition to several sets from moe., The Roots, Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood, Amos Lee, Meat Puppets, Strangefolk, State Radio, Al and the Transamericans, Rolla, Ryan Montbleau, Lotus, Ra Ra Riot, Ha Ha the Moose, The Brakes, Uncle Earl, VietNam and Acoustic Forum are each scheduled to perform.
