Did you know Nikki Glaspie, drummer for Dumpstaphunk, is putting on her own festival? It’s this weekend kids – and if you are in the Massachusetts area I think you probably should show up. It promises to be more than a funky time – it headlines Dumpsta, and Glaspie’s newest band, The Nth Power, is showing it’s chops. Plus, Skerik (saxophonist extraordinaire) and Nigel Hall are just some of the Artists-at-Large? Yeah. It’s kinda a no brainer.
Oh, and yeah, they are donating 50% of the proceeds and 100% of the silent auction to SEMAP. The Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership (SEMAP) is dedicated to preserving and expanding access to local food and sustainable farming in Southeastern Massachusetts through research and education. They promote local farmer’s markets in the South Coast region, work with public schools to bring healthy food to students, and support local farmers, restaurants, and local food vendors.
I mean, personally, Ms. Glaspie not only has amazing chops on those drums (and all the other multi-instruments she plays, including french horn!), but she promotes amazing things. This is her first festival, with (dare I say) more to come (not confirmed). This woman promotes good music, good times, and good local food.
This sounds like a beautiful day. Make sure you check it out!
