Everyone is trying to get to the bar … the name of the bar? … the bar is called Targhee!
In an announcement that had been anticipated for weeks, Panic will play July 1-3 at the base of Fred’s Mountain. The shows are one of the highlights of the band’s 25th anniversary tour and come on the heels of a similar stint at Red Rocks.
Tickets will go on sale April 1 for $41 per day or $99 for a weekend pass. Click here for tickets and call (800) TAR-GHEE for lodging reservations and camping passes.
This is the first time Widespread Panic ever has played a three-night run in the Jackson Hole area.
The band first played the Mangy Moose Saloon in 1990 and performed at Snow King, indoors and out, many times from 1993 to 2006. Last summer Panic played the Spud Drive-In in Idaho on the Fourth of July.
Among the artists who may join the band over the weekend are Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons, J-Boogie, The New Mastersounds and Dirty Dozen Brass Band, according to promoter Knitting Factory.
More details for the Targhee fest, including music after the shows, will be posted here in the coming weeks.
In heaven the band plays … our favorite songs … They play ‘em one more time, they play ‘em all night long!
