Lesh, Molitz and Molo=Telstar
Phil Lesh, Steve Molitz and John Molo will play a special trio set as Telstar at Yuri’s Night Bay Area on April 12. The single-day event will take place in a massive hanger at the NASA Ames Research Center on Moffett Field in Mountain View, CA, celebrating both Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, and the launch of the first Space Shuttle exactly twenty years later. In addition to Telstar, Molitz will also perform at the event with Particle (who have expanded their lineup to include guest guitarist Brian Jordan). Other artists scheduled to appear include Amon Tobin, Tipper, Freezepop, BLVD with Souleye and MJ Greenmountain vs. Yossi Fine, among many others. The night will also feature a number of other electronic artists, speakers and interactive performances. At Langerado, Lesh, Molitz and Molo previewed their new groups sound by offering a Telstar interlude between Unbroken Chain and The Golden Road.
