Way back on New Year’s Eve 1989, members of Left Hand String Band, Drew Emmitt and Glenn Keefe, joined Vince Herman and members of Herman’s band, The Salmon Heads, for a performance at the Eldo in Crested Butte under the moniker Leftover Salmon. After 20 years of carving their own path to success, the band will celebrate their anniversary with a pair of gigs on December 30 and 31 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, CO.
A limited amount of tickets are available for each show through the band’s fan club, which you can join by signing up for the email list over at the group’s website. Those who sign up will receive a code to participate in the NYE presale and will get access to a free download of LoS’s main stage set at High Sierra. Tickets go on sale to the general public on September 18 through the Boulder Theater.
The founders of the “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass” genre have a busy weekend ahead. On Saturday, the group will headline The Traffic Jam festival on the streets of Baltimore while on Sunday they’ll join Ekoostik Hookah at what has to be the 1,295th installment of Hookahville in Pataskala, OH.
