Here it is, THE LAST SUMMER CAMP ARTIST SERIES POST. Rocking in at #47 is the always danceable Disco Biscuits. Affectionally referred to as “Bisco” by many fans, the quartet arose in the mid-90’s at the University of Pennsylvania. If you’ve never seen Bisco, be sure to bring your dancin’ feet, since that’s the best [...]

Summer Camp Artist #46 – Garbage Mountain

Summer Camp Artist #46 is Garbage Mountain. They’re a quartet out of Chicago, IL. I like them because the tagline on their MySpace page is “Can I get a beef….dry…with sum hot peppers?” You should like them because they can jam. Check out this show from a couple months ago at Chicago’s own Kinetic Playground, [...]

Summer Camp Artist #43 – Elsinore

Summer Camp Artist #43 is another personal favorite of mine, Champaign-Urbana’s very own Elsinore. A quartet with a new release out last month, they’re easily on of my favorite new music finds this year. I’ve got a few tracks to share with you, and don’t forget to check out their website and befriend them on [...]

Summer Camp Artist #42 – Vince Herman

Summer Camp Artist #42 is Vince Herman (frontman/founder of Leftover Salmon), and he’s also the Master of Ceremonies for Summer Camp 2006. That basically means he’s the MC on the main stage, and might even play a set or two over the course of the weekend. I’ve got a big hint for you though… if [...]

Summer Camp Artist #41 – Alan Vasquez

Summer Camp Artist #41 is kind of me cheating a little, I’ve chosen Alan Vasquez. I have to finish like 5 more regular Summer Camp artists before I can consider moving to the Thursday artists, but I’m making an exception this time because I’m a fan of Alan Vasquez’s music. Alan is a one-man band [...]

Summer Camp Artist #38 – moe.

Here they are. The headliners. The big #38 on the Summer Camp Artist Series is the one and only moe. They probably don’t need much introducing, but they’re a 5-piece act out of New York State, and they’ve been going strong for (I’m guessing here) probably around a decade give or take. I know they [...]
