Two hours of light, breezy and dreamy music, an accompaniment to lying in the grass on a summer's day.

Thirty-Nine different acts in this show, here is some information about some of them:

Ed's Redeeming Qualities:

Ed's Redeeming Qualities was an alternative-folk band formed in the late eighties. Members included Dom Leone (until his death in 1989), Carrie Bradley, Dani Leone, Neno Perrotta, and Jonah Winter, who joined later. All the members joined together in New Hampshire and began performing locally and in Boston. Carrie Bradley went on to perform with The Breeders, the same band who probably gave Ed's Redeeming Qualities the most exposure thanks to their cover of their song Drivin' On 9. They have been called the "David Lynch of folk music."

Alice Cooper:

Alice Cooper (first as The Earwigs, then The Spiders, then The Nazz, before settling on their final deceivingly wholesome name) formed in 1964 before disbanding in 1975. (Vincent Furnier would change his name to Alice Cooper after the breakup and perform as a solo act). In that time they released seven albums, including the oft-forgotten first two albums: Pretties For You (1969) and Easy Action (1970). This garage/psychedelic/acid rock band was discovered and signed by Frank Zappa after they emptied a concert hall with their playing. After the first two psychedelic albums, the band changed direction to focus on hard/glam rock while also relocating to Michigan from California.
