Assembly of Dust
Assembly of Dust, which plays at the Bearsville Theater on Thursday night, March 31, is a feel-good band: a mix of various musical styles reminiscent of the Dead when they went country, or the Allman Brothers without Greg’s wail or the endless jams. They reflect their beginnings in smart/easy-vibe Ithaca and their touring schedule of the current spate of great, sonically sharp festivals like Bonnaroo, Langerado, Wakarusa, Newport, Gathering of the Vibes and the All Good Music Festival. They send out a sense of fun and have one of those rollicking rhythm sections that gets even white men moving their shoulders, midsections, feet and eventually hips. It’s boogie-riffic and kind of perfect for these weeks when we start to get outside, only to end up back indoors because it’s just a bit too chill to be barefootin’.
Coming up beforehand at Bearsville, though, will be some serious jammin’ in the form of the rescheduled 27th annual Woodstock Tribute to Bob Marley that had to be canceled from its original date at the time of the late great one’s birthday back in February because of…well, do we really need to mention the weather of the past few months again? On the bill will be the likes of Crucial Massive, Squeeky Plus, Jamaica’s Starcade Deejays, Jah Witness and Songs of Solomon.
Both shows start around 8 p.m. Call (845) 679-4406 for further information on the venue, which located in Woodstock, on Route 212 just west of the village itself. Or visit www.bearsvilletheater.com or check it out on Facebook for directions and reservations.
