This year’s Otis Mountain Get Down will have a great lineup including Stop Light Observations, the Dustbowl Revival and Wild Adriatic.
Stop Light Observations is a “transformational rock” group from South Carolina. The Dustbowl Revival is a California-based group that plays old school-sounding Americana, bluegrass, swing and gospel tunes, and they’re releasing a new album this summer. And if you somehow don’t know by now, Wild Adriatic is Albany’s up-and-coming bluesy rock group in the vein of the Black Keys.
Check out this clip from The Dust Bowl Revival:
The initial lineup also includes Saranac Lake’s The Blind Owl Band, always good for a foot-stomping good bluegrassy time; Bella’s Bartok, coming out of Massachusetts with a sound that mixes gypsy music with Modest Mouse-style alternative; Montreal musicians Busty and the Bass; the Suitcase Junket; Madaila, a pop group from across the lake in Burlington, Vt.; The Kids; bluegrass/Americana group Eastbound Jesus out of Greenwich, near Saratoga; Mosaic Foundation, a reggae group from the Finger Lakes; and On the Spot Trio, a funk/soul group from California; among others.
Here’s the full initial lineup:
Organizers made a Spotify playlist to help familiarize potential attendees with the group of artists they have booked.
