You know how lots of dudes have their "fantasy" sports teams, where they get all crazy about their dream combinations of men with bats and balls? Well I have fantasy concerts, all the time, most of them involving some picturesque outdoor venue--in Big Sur--and a lineup involving the best psych, folksy, and indie acts.

, I don't have to sit around hoping a coach across the country hires my team. To wit: the promoter just announced a show that I'm more excited about than any other this summer. It's a Woodsist Records
showcase with some of my personal faves on the label--Real Estate
, Moon Duo
, Kurt Vile
--playing together with other acts on Saturday, June 12 at the Henry Miller Library. *Just added: The Fresh & Onlys
, The Art Museums
, The Mantles
, & Eat Skull
(((FolkYeah))) points fans towards Henry Miller Library's site
to buy tickets, which are a bargain at $22.50. I imagine this gig's gonna sell out quick.
I can vouch for the acts listed so far as putting on great live shows. I saw Real Estate probably three or four times at SXSW this year, and they never disappointed, while Woods and Vile played a similar all day music picnic at the Library last year, and it was one of the best gigs I hit all year. So yeah, if you can't tell by now, I'm stoked.
One more note: Woods has a great new record
