Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds Added to Gathering of the Vibes Lineup
Mon, 11 Apr 2011 10:00:21
Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds have been added to the lineup of Gathering of the Vibes, the Northeast's premier summer music festival. The nine-piece band is led by powerhouse vocalist Arleigh Kincheloe. Nine piece? Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds have something in common with Slipknot!
The Gathering of the Vibes will feature over 40 bands which will perform on multiple alternating stages at Seaside Park's 370-acre beachfront venue from July 21st through the 24th in Bridgeport, CT, which is not very far from New York City.
Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds will perform at Gathering of the Vibes as part of their first major US tour. Other stops include Camp Jam, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and the Bastille Days Festival in Milwaukee. The tour will close out at the Bear Creek Music Festival in Live Oak, Fl., in November, where the band will share the stage with national acts like Medeski, Martin & Wood.
In the last eight months alone, SSDB have taken the live music scene by storm. They kept an audience of thousands moving and shaking at moe.down, filling the coveted slot between Mike Gordon of Phish and the Black Keys. Separately, they sat in with Mike Gordon in New York City. They tore up the stage along with Dr. John and the Soul Rebels Brass Band at the 5th Annual NOLA Funk Mardi Gras Ball. In between, they supported the Radiators at the Oneonta Theater, a theater that they headlined only a month later. They co-headlined with Orgone in New York City and Syracuse; supported The Rebirth Brass Band at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City and packed the Highline Ballroom along with Rubblebucket. With their impressive Summer/Fall tour schedule, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds are set to fly and spread their brand of "dirt" across the country.
