STEAL THIS TICKET: A Musical Tribute to Abbie Hoffman
Featuring Steve Molitz (Phil Lesh & Friends, Particle), Jon Gutwillig (the Disco Biscuits),
Michael Travis and Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident, EOTO), DJ Logic
Join this all-star cast August 24 as they celebrate the anniversary of the day Abbie Hoffman and his faithful hippie following crashed the New York Stock Exchange in 1967, creating a frenzy by throwing dollar bills onto the trading room floor from the viewing deck above. The stunt disrupted the day's trade by sending brokers into a money-hungry scramble, and was also considered one of Hoffman's greatest social commentaries on America's insatiable obsession with excess.
New York City's Spiegelworld Circus Tent (located at the South Street Seaport) will host this counter culture celebration, promising a late night of music, performance art, mischief and mayhem. The festivities kick off with full sets from both EOTO and DJ Logic before Steve Molitz, Jon Gutwillig, Michael Travis, Jason Hann, DJ Logic, and very special guests close the night out. Space is limited in the all-ages tent, so be sure to visit Spiegelworld.com for advance tickets to guarantee your admission to this one-time event.
For its third, expanded season, Spiegelworld will feature two performance tents: The Salon Perdu, the company's vintage Spiegeltent, and The Deluxe, marking the first time U.S. fans have seen two Belgian traveling venues side by side. Spiegelworld will also boast a version of the Bonnaroo staple the Silent Disco, known as the Headphone Disco. Other shows of note include Dresden Dolls visionary Amanda Palmer (8/11), the Yard Dogs Road Show (9/21-22), The Benevento-Russo Duo and Travis Sullivan's Bjorkestra (9/23), The Dodos (9/29), Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra (10/5), Tim Fite & Mike Relm (10/7), Nellie McKay (10/14) and The Felice Brothers (11/2).
Molitz performs next with Phil Lesh & Friends as part of their Summer Jamboree Tour. Phil & Friends dates available here.
