July 14, 2011EASY STAR GOES TO CAMP
"With a swelling crowd and sunny skies, the Easy Star All-Stars took to the Mainstage Friday at the Camp Bisco X in Mariaville Lake, NY. The festival, which was started by and centered around seminal jam band The Disco Biscuits, featured a slew of big-name acts spanning various genres, from the new-school hip-hop of Wiz Khalifa, to the frenetic light-show dance parties of Pretty Lights and Bassnectar, to the trippy Shpongle. The All-Stars were the sole representatives at the festival of the reggae sound, but managed to attract a large audience that grew as the set went on. Busting out new classics, such as "Don't Stop the Music" off of the group's new LP, First Light, to cover favorites spanning all three previous releases, the set was one to remember. With a massive sing-a-long and smiling faces, the Easy Star All-Stars were the perfect way to kick off one heck of a weekend.
Be sure to catch the Easy Star All-Stars on tour this summer in Israel, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales!

July 12, 2011EASY STAR ALL-STARS TAKE GREECE!
"The Easy Star All-Stars are very excited to announce a show for July 25 in Halkidiki, Greece, while also saddened to report that their planned show in Athens the next day is not happening. With a fresh arsenal of classic covers and new cuts off of their original release "First Light," the Easy Star All-Stars are ready to bring their vibes to the Greek isles for the first time. The Athens show appears to be a victim of the recent rioting over austerity packages and economic crisis, but the band hopes to return to that great city again soon. " More info »
