moe. To Play Farm Aid

moe. Postpone Hiatus to Play Farm Aid in September

moe.
moe. has announced that they will postpone their planned hiatus to participate in this year's Farm Aid Concert at Mansfield, MA's Comcast Center (Great Woods) on September 20. moe. will join Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp and others. Severe weather and extreme conditions have made this year particularly challenging for our country's independent farmers and moe. looks forward to contributing to this cause.

moe. guitarist/vocalist Al Schnier says, "We still very much look forward to our long awaited time off with our families, thus, will not be playing any other dates until next year. Thanks again for all of your continued support."

moe. will perform at their annual moe.down festival this weekend (8/29-8/31) at Snow Ridge Ski Area in Turin, NY, before their final pre-hiatus gig at Farm Aid.

Bluntsnbisco is a god damn scumbag; full of hate. Don't use him to generalize people that actually like the Disco Biscuits, please.

Im sure their Farm aid set will be a very laid back compared to moedown.

Heady = Its a term stupid kids use when talking to other stupid kids about stupid shit.

Seriously...just ban bluntsnbisco420 for life! He gets to comment and spread his hate, if only for a few minutes before his comment is deleted by JB. I personally reached my limit with this punk kid after his comment on the passing of Rubi. I'm not a violent person, but would love to slap this jerkoff! Anyway...back to the original subject. Take away DMB and John Cougar Mellonball and Farm Aid looks tight!

Seriously Cass, slow down...use some periods, dashes, something! I can't follow your type, much less your thoughts.

But, the good news is that stupid bluntbisco is gone - BANNED - done! Or, at least i hope so. I looked for his old posts, and it looks like his hating arsky is out! FINALLY!

Hey, are you a new blunts or an old blunts? And why does your profile say you're from my town? If you're the same as the old blunts, let me know where you hang so I can shove some good music down your dirty mouth!

Mellonball is funny. But you're a total moron if you really think you should take away one of the co-founders. Farm Aid is totally not about, or for, any of you (or me). It for farmers. Weren't any of you at the Farm Aid in Chitown where Neil Young had to come and play with Phish for about half their set just to keep the TV audience from turning it off!? They got so many complaints for having Phish there but who do you think sold the most tix?

moe. imo is one of the most underrated bands in the scene and hopefully when they get back from hiatus more and more people catch on to why these guys are so amazing. Their also really good down to earth people who care about what happens in the world.

Hey Red, I've been called worse, but never moron. Not saying they should take Mellonball off the ticket, just that his music and voice put me in a coma. Can't imagine having to sit through that live. Also, same opinion of DMB.

I second the Arizona call. Farm Aid sounds rad again this year. As oil and other natural resources run dry we're gonna need local farming more then ever. Wish I could make it once again.

I've been to a farm aid before and it was pretty cool. The doobie brothers were their and about 6 dudes who looked like Willie Nelson. It was fun, got drunk, then danced to John cougar. Never thought I'd do that.

Im thinking moe might not play the main stage at the great woods. There is a stage as soon as you walk into the place on the left, and you may even to be able to hear it from the parking lot if you didnt get tickets. But as I am not affiliated with the venue or the band, its just speculation. Best place to see a show in Massachusetts besides Tanglewood or the Calvin. Go Moe!

oh....and Headies originally referred to HIGH Quality marijuana, like the Northern lights or the Jack Flash! But people start to make up their own terms and heady somehow became a slang term for the slang term "cool" or Rad....YO

WOW. Who knew a laid back band such as Moe. could spark so much anger. For those hatin on moe. right now...what compels you to write hateful comments on a band you claim to not care about? Why take the time and ruin the discussion for people that are EXCITED to see moe.? You just make yourself look like an ass. ASS.

I watched this glass blowing documentary and "Supposely" the term headie derived from head pieces, sick glass. during the phish tours. But either way it is just a word like dank. and all them other slang words. but dont quote me on this.
