Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country (Saturday, June 22)

Ages: 18+ | Doors open at 11 p.m. Tickets start at $29.50


Nashville guitarist, singer-songwriter and band leader Daniel Donato will be celebrating the release of his first all-original album “Reflector,” with a must-see performance at the Bowl. Dubbed Cosmic Country, Donato’s musical style combines organic rock band aesthetics with roadhouse twang.


“I think Cosmic Country is a tale as old as time, really,” Donato explains. “It’s yin and yang in a musical form. It’s three chords and the truth, and then on the other side it’s exploration and bravery. I really went through a lot of years of grinding, and still am, to achieve this sound which is a vehicle for my personality, and the personality is a vehicle for my soul. So (Reflector) is more that than any other record I ever put out.”


Tauk (Thursday, July 4 and Friday, July 5)

Ages: 18+ | Doors open at 11 p.m. | Tickets start at $25


New York-based rock-fusion band TAUK is teaming up with vocalist Kanika Moore in support of the new music they are writing together. After a number of highly energetic and powerful live collaborations including Electric Forest in 2018, Peach Festival, and Resonance Festival in 2021, they decided to jump in the studio and write a song, which turned into Kanika spending two weeks with the band resulting in Moore songs. The tunes conjured up during this session are the basis of the TAUK Moore tour.


Circles Around the Sun (Saturday, July 6)

Ages: 18+ | Doors open at 11 p.m. | Tickets start at $31


Originally formed from an idea that concert impresario Peter Shapiro had about commissioning original set-break music at the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary concerts (“Fare Thee Well”), Circles Around The Sun is a first-of-its-kind band that has continued to trail-blaze the instrumental cosmic disco space for nearly a decade, shapeshifting through several iterations. Not just spiritually but actually and tangibly linked to Grateful Dead history, the band’s music shares shelf space with post-rock, psych-rock, jazz-funk, and good old fashioned psychedelia, while their recorded output has included collaborations with such diverse luminaries as Joe Russo, Billy Strings and Mikaela Davis. Original instrumentals form the bedrock of CATS’ live show, taking fans on a whole different journey every time.

Dark Star Orchestra (Wednesday, July 10)
Ages: 18+ | Doors open at 6:30 p.m. | Tickets start at $35

Drawing on the Grateful Dead’s expansive 30-year catalog, Dark Star Orchestra recreates set lists from the past while breathing new life into them with their own unique improvisations. A true love letter to the Grateful Dead, Dark Star Orchestra has captured the attention of fans all over the world and has performed at some of the most iconic music venues including a sold-out debut at Colorado’s Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater.

Doom Flamingo (Thursday, July 11)
Ages: 18+ | Doors open at 11 p.m. | Tickets start at $35

Doom Flamingo is a six-headed synthwave beast with a Jekyll and Hyde element to the songwriting. Top Gun guitar riffs and Miami Beach poolside lounge vibes are all at once contrasted with eerie darksynth soundscapes reminiscent of old John Carpenter films.

Doom Flamingo came together organically through friendships and past collaborations in their hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. The sextet features dynamic vocalist Kanika Moore, alongside a powerhouse of musicians including bassist Ryan Stasik of prolific rock band Umphrey’s McGee.
