The dynamic band Garcia Peoples, featuring guitarists and vocalists Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki, drummer Cesar Arakaki, bassists Andy Cush and Derek Spaldo, and keyboardist P.G. Six., was formed in Rutherford, New Jersey. The group takes inspiration from the improvisational and psychedelic jam bands of the 1960s. With a stash of live recordings accumulating at the Live Music Archive, Garcia Peoples’ music is very much a living entity.

Mountain Movers, an underground rock band from New Haven, Connecticut, opens. The band includes vocalist Dan Greene, guitarist Kryssi Battalene, bassist Rick Omonte, and drummer Ross Menze. The group's music is a blend of Neil Young/Dinosaur Jr. songcraft, with fiery leads provided by Kryssi Battalene, who takes inspiration from Japanese psychedelic rock.

Free. For accessibility concerns, call 413 458 0524. This program is presented in collaboration with Belltower Records, North Adams, Massachusetts. Food from Vegan Pizza Land available for purchase. Rain moves the performance to the auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
