Mike will perform a free concert on Friday, August 15th in Burlington, VT in Waterfront Park overlooking Lake Champlain. In addition to Mike’s performance, Senator Bernie Sanders will address the crowd. Gordon and Senator Sanders last teamed up in 2006 to put on "Honky Tonk the Vote", a sold-out concert for voter registration at the Higher Ground nightclub in Burlington. Bow Thayer and Perfect Trainwreck will open the show. The concert begins at 7:00 PM and capacity is limited. It’s being sponsored by Progressive Voters of America.
In addition, three new dates have been added to Mike’s 2008 Summer tour. The band will play on August 12th at The State Theatre in Falls Church, VA and August 28th at K-TAOS Solar Center in Taos, New Mexico. Tickets are on sale now.
Mike will stop by Mountain Stage on August 10th for a live performance. Hosted by Larry Groce, this award-winning show is the longest-running radio program of its kind – over 1,200 artists have appeared on the Stage since it premiered nationally in 1985. The show is recorded weekly before an audience at the West Virginia Cultural Center in Charleston.
