Our annual SoL party is coming up for its fifth year, and this year's party is looking to be the best so far. We've got Deadicace on Saturday and Sunday, and an NRPS covers band (the Blue Devils) coming on before them on the Sunday, plus Nick Harper (son of Roy), Roger Wootton and Glenn Goring from the legendary Comus, Martin Stephenson of the Martin Stephenson and the Daintees, The Higher State, and loads more.
Check out our Summer of Love party (www.solparty.org.uk) if you're in the UK in July. It's the best Deadhead party this side of the Atlantic (and maybe even both sides).
