08-03-2006Wetlands Preserved to screen in Providence; Summer tour details and fall tour additions; Live webcast from Lollapalooza

After playing to a packed house at New York's Green Apple Music Festival back in April, "Wetlands Preserved" is going on the road. Director Dean Budnick has confirmed that the film will screen at Providence's Columbus Theater as part of the Rhode Island Film Festival next Thursday, August 10th at 6:45pm. In addition to attending the 90-minute screening, Budnick will also be appearing as part of a panel discussion immediately following the film, but the guest of honor will be Wetlands founder Larry Bloch. Other guests are expected to attend as well. For more information on the film (including an additional screening next month in Colorado), visit wetlandspreserved.com.

As the summer tour draws to a close - taking with it highlights such as the resurrection of not one, but two fan requests ("Traveler Suite", which was played but once at Red Rocks, and "Make My Way", which has appeared several times since then)- the fall tour continues to take shape. The band has announced several new shows since the last round of announcements, and the early word is that the tour will begin in early October around a date in Lake Havasu City, AZ. After two more dates in mid-October, the theater shows come fast and furious in November - recently-added dates include November 11th at the State Theatre in Falls Church, VA; a November 14th date in Red Bank, NJ that marks their first show there in fifteen years, and a November 21st show in Stamford, CT - one of John's many hometowns.

Finally, if you haven't had the chance to catch the band live yet this year, AT&T will be webcasting hours of free, uninterrupted live streaming coverate from Lollapalooza on August 4th through the 6th. Blues Traveler goes on stage at 7:30 on Sunday the 6th, but there's no telling where John might pop up, so tune in at blueroom.att.com/events/lollapalooza.php to catch all the music.
