moe. has announced that Ryan Adams & the Cardinals will no longer be performing at the 8th annual moe.down, and will be replaced by Perry Farrell's Satellite Party.
The Cardinals have canceled their appearance for personal reasons, and Farrell (Janes Addiction, Porno For Pyros) will be taking the slot.
"We are thrilled to have Perry Farrell's Satellite Party on board for moe.down," says moe.'s Al Schnier. "Jane's Addiction was a huge influence when moe. first got together. Jane's had a unique way of taking heavy alternative music and making it very psychedelic. And of cours, Perry's Lollapalooza was very influential on us. While moe.down is on a different scale & perspective, the vibe is the same – music, camping, vendors, non-profits, a kids tent & parade – all borne out of our experiences as fans of Lollapalooza."
moe.down will be held August 31 through September 2 at the Snow Ridge Ski area in Turin, New York. Along with hosts moe., The Roots, Medeski, Scofield, Martin, & Wood, The Meat Puppets, and many others round out the bill.
