Dave Matthews Band Caravan, Take Two

September 13th, 2011

Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned, so you dust yourself off and get right back up again. That’s what happened when Hurricane Irene rained out the Dave Matthews Band Caravan originally planned for late August on Governors Island. But you can’t keep a good festival down, and so the Caravan is back—this time on Friday, Saturday and Sunday on Randall’s Island. And while the lineup has changed, the bands are still killer. Dave Matthews Band (above, doing “Crush” in Central Park) plays a full set each night, and they’re joined by Dispatch, SOJA and TR3 (featuring Tim Reynolds) on Friday, Dispatch, Warren Haynes and Brandi Carlile on Saturday, and From Good Homes, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band, plus an acoustic performance by Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, on Sunday. Not too shabby, right? Governors Island tickets will be valid for the corresponding date (e.g. Friday tickets valid for Friday only), and three-day passes will be valid for all three rescheduled dates. The weather looks great and as an added bonus for your patience, you can download a free split digital 7″ from the Dave Matthews Band and Dispatch here.
