Festival junkies who're lamenting the official close of the summer season can look forward to Sound Summit, a musical night atop Mount Tamalpais, this Saturday, September 19, 2015.
We see a lot of Keep Tahoe Blue bumper stickers rollin' around these parts, but how about raising awareness for a geographical beauty even closer to home? Sound Summit: A Benefit for the Mountain, is a one-day music fest to raise funds for the care of Mt. Tam State Park.
The historic 4,000-seat Sidney B. Cushing Memorial "Mountain" Amphitheatre will stage eclectic acts including the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Dr. John and The Nite Trippers, The Mother Hips, Portland Cello Project, and The Mother Truckers.
Michael Nash, a producer of the festival formerly known as Tam Jam, is taking aim at a vibe that feels in keeping with both Mt. Tam's history and its future: “We feel Sound Summit is a well-wrought, creative and dynamic gesture of support for a very special place in the neighborhood,” he says Nash. “It is as much a community spirit as it is a community event." // Saturday, Sept. 19, 11am to 7pm, at Mountain Theater (Mill Valley), soundsummit.net
