As we’re getting excited about the upcoming Helsing Junction Sleepover (August 15-17, get ready, get set, to go!! – three days of music, films, dancing, food, swimming, camping, all that) we’re profiling some of the bands that are playing here on the K weblog. This week we highlight Alexander’s Real Time Band and Camp Widsom.
Alexander’s Real Time Band is lead by Alan Alexander, known by some as the singer and producer of Dub Squad. Alexander’s Real Time Band they have played every Sleepover since the beginning. Not the same lineup, but the jams have been consistent. A blurb from their website ” What do we sound like? ‘Organic Soul’…’Free Range’… ‘Curtis Mayfield meets Keb Mo at the Oregon Country Fair’…” What the wtf? Could be atomic.
Camp Wisdom have described themselves as a folk’n’roll band. Flock yeah.
It’s the folk’n’roll found in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, c. 1966. Bang that tambourine. Put on your dancing uggs and sing along. Olympia Westside sounds of get down. Party serious and start all over again.
You can hear Camp Wisdom HERE.
