MOUNT TAM JAM FEATURING GALACTIC
TAJ MAHAL TRIO, AND DANNY CLICK AND THE HELL YEAHS!
It's been a while since a proper rock show has taken place on Mount Tamalpais in San Francisco Bay Area's Marin
County, but that is about to change. On Saturday June 22nd, The Taj Mahal Trio, Galactic and Danny Click & The Hell
participate in Mount Tam Jam - A
Benefit For The Mountain. General Admission adult tickets start at $50, and Galactic will also play an after-show at
nearby Sweetwater Music Hall.
The venue, The Mountain Theater, is also putting on a production of The Sound of Music, and back in the 1960's was the site of some major rock concerts from
like The Grateful Dead, and the legendary Fantasy Fair
Magic Mountain Music Festival in 1967.
The Mountain Theater (a.k.a. The Cushing Memorial Theater) in the park was constructed by the Civilian Conservation
Corps in the 1930s. The natural-stone amphitheater seats 3,750 people and features the Mountain Play each spring,
produced every year since 1913.
UPDATE: The festival now has its own website -
added CAKE to its lineup which it describes as "still evolving".
