Tortugas Appetizer

Comments Off on Mix Tape: Tortugas Appetizer

Next week the Impound takes the highway to its favorite little music festival of them all, Las Tortugas – Dance of the Dead. Set amongst tall, green trees at a delightful lodge near Yosemite, CA, Tortugas isn’t just a reminder of what great music made by real musicians sounds like, it’s a reminder of what’s good about human beings. It’s also a hell of a party, where freak flags lay tattered by weekend’s close but no one is complaining about anything except having to leave this raucous oasis. Las Tortugas V will feature 7 Walkers, The Mother Hips, ALO, Yonder Mountain String Band and close to 30 more acts. See the full lineup here, and if you haven’t made plans for your Halloween weekend, there’s still tickets available.

This mix presents some of the artists playing the fest alongside some road music to give folks headed over Highway 50 (or those wishing they were) a soundtrack as we prepare for another shared adventure October 28-31.

If you experience playback problems, pop over to the 8tracks mix page and it should play fine.
