When Relix magazine decided to celebrate its 30th Anniversary by hosting an outdoor concert in New York City, Gov't Mule was the obvious choice. The band personifies Relix's "Music for the Mind" slogan, with its jolting amalgam of improvisational rock, blues and jazz. The Mule will headline the high profile event, which takes place this Friday, June 6th at Rumsey Field in Manhattan's Central Park. It will be Gov't Mule's first appearance in The Big Apple since its two heralded sold-out performances at the Beacon Theater this past December.

Doors are at 4:30pm and showtime is slated for 6pm. Enter Central Park at 72nd Street and 5th Avenue (the concert will be held at 69th Street). Special guests Robert Randolph and the Family Band will also appear. Advance tickets are $30 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.

Fans are still buzzing about Gov't Mule's recent "Deepest End" concert, a marathon show that took place May 3rd at the Saenger Theater in New Orleans [read a show review]. The event featured several of the legendary bass players who appear on Gov't Mule's Deep End albums, including George Porter Jr., Jack Casady and Roger Glover. Portions of the historic night will be showcased on a double live album and DVD to be released this fall.

Established in 1973, Relix was one of the first magazines to cover the jamband and live improvisational music scene. Relix reaches more than 300,000 readers with exclusive interviews, reviews and lifestyle features. The Relix family also includes, and the Jammy Awards.
