Huichica Hudson happens this weekend (August 24-26) at Chaseholm Farm in Pine Plains, NY with sets from Amen Dunes, Allah-Las, Bettye Lavette, Espers, Vetiver, Ryley Walker, Robyn Hitchcock and more. They've just announced that The Band's Garth Hudson will close out Friday (8/24), with a performance where he'll be joined by his sister, Maud Hudson.
Right before that on Friday, Garth and Maud will both be part of Mercury Rev's improvised live score for classic horror film, Carnival of Souls. Billed as "Mercury Rev & Friends," the group's Jonathan Donahue and Grasshopper will also be joined by Robyn Hitchcock, Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Mimi Goese (Hugo Largo), John Ashton (Psychedelic Furs) and Anthony Thistlewaite (The Waterboys).
