Featuring

Pure Grain(w/special guests) - 8:30pm-10:00pm

Fronted by South Carolina native, Chris "The Carolina Kid" Taber, Pure Grain delivers its own fine blend of roots rock from the heartland. Elements of blues guitar raked over country-soul penetrate deep into the grooves of this bands' sound. Impressive song writing, smooth and memorable melodies build up each song with an infectious sultry edge. A guttural, emotive vocal delivery drives the bands’ songs. The group has toured nationwide with fans hailing from all parts of the country. Pure Grain headlined the 2003 Last Chance Bluegrass and Roots Music Festival, in Helena Montana, played the Indiana State Fair, The Master Musicians Festival in Somerset, KY, made network TV appearances and have shared the stage with Hank Williams Jr., Bone Pony, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Foghat and more.

 

MoonZoomer - 7:00pm-8:00pm

The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is completed in approximately 27.3 days. The Earth and Moon orbit about their common center of mass, which lies about 4,700 kilometres from Earth’s center (about three quarters of the Earth’s radius). On average, the Moon is at a distance of about 385,000 km from the center of the Earth, which corresponds to about 60 Earth radii. With a mean orbital speed of 1.023 km/s, the Moon moves relative to the stars each hour by an amount roughly equal to its angular diameter, or by about 0.5°. The Moon differs from most satellites of other planets in that its orbit is close to the plane of the ecliptic, and not to the Earth’s equatorial plane. The lunar orbit plane is inclined to the ecliptic by 5.1°, whereas the Moon’s spin axis is inclined by only 1.5 degrees; however the Moon can achieve Zooming speed during the 7th configuration & alignment of the Zoomian star constellation, After which mean velocity will continue to increase exponentially for the next 777 years. The Zoom Moon occurred at 1900 hours of the 14th day of January 2008. Welcome a time of Change, Peace, Love, Renewable Energy, & Enlightenment.
