POOR MAN'S WHISKEY TO PERFORM DARKSIDE OF THE MOONSHINE
AT FILLMORE IN SF ON NOVEMBER 11
Poor Man's Whiskey will perform their incredible bluegrass interpretation of Darkside of the Moon at the Fillmore, San Francisco on Nov. 11, 2011. The band has not performed Darkside of the Moonshine in San Francisco since 2008. This time around, PMW has Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident) sitting in on the fiddle. Michael will add a new dimension to this high energy performance that showcases the bands take on this Pink Floyd classic in its entirety.

This show will be special on a lot of levels. This will be the bands first time headlining the Fillmore and they could not be more excited. In addition, they will have the "West Coast Guitar Wizard", Sean G. Lehe (Izabella and The Bumptet) on guitar for his first Darkside performance. Sean has now officially joined the band for the remainder of the 2011 tour schedule. His broad range of talent bridges the gap between bluegrass and jam band style guitar and will compliment PMW's multi-genre sound seamlessly.
The band released the double disc Darkside of the Moonshine in 2009 and has toured the show only a handful of times in select markets. PMW's arrangement of this cult album by Pink Floyd was performed by Jason Beard (mandolin, guitar) when he realized that the songs would translate nicely to a bluegrass format. The evening will be themed around the Darkside/Wizard of Oz connection, and everyone is encouraged to dress as their favorite character from the Oz.
Poor Man's Whiskey released their fifth album in May, entitled Goodbye California. You can find it on itunes or at cdbaby.com.
