[The Audiofiles] The Gem and Jam Festival Set to Rock Tuscon in February


In just a few short weeks, Arizona’s fabled Gem and Jam Festival embarks on their 11th magical, musical journey to a new location – Tucson’s Pima County Fairgrounds – from February 2nd through the 5th with both single day and full weekend passes still available. Happening in parallel with the largest Gem and Mineral show on the West Coast, the Gem and Jam Festival has evolved into a staple of the boutique festival circuit and draws crowds from every corner of West Coast. Facilitated by the move to a new location, Gem and Jam will now be camping festival, so bundle up and get ready to bounce!

Talent for this year’s event includes a veritable artistic cross-section of movers and shakers in the dance music industry – modern musicians, producers, and DJs who prefer to throw it back to when real instruments were the preferred method of choice and jamming out was a soul’s improvisational release in this rigid world. Artists for this year’s Gem and Jam Festival include the funklord Gramatik, Phish bassist Mike Gordon, The Floozies, Lotus, EOTO, G Jones, Thriftworks, The Russ Liquid Test, Poolside, Opiou, Com Truise and so many more.

About missamandapearl

♥ I'm a spunky girl with a big heart and an open mind. I can't ride a bike and dislike capital letters. I'm slightly obsessed with my kitties - Daisy, Stella, Loki, Marley and Lucky - but I bet if they were yours you would be, too. I laugh all the time - loudly and mostly at myself. my favorite things include, but aren't limited to: fabulous people, my fantastic husband, traveling, live music, social media, a good read, working out, furry friends, the Golden State Warriors, photography, and sushi. Everyone, including you, looks like an animal - and I won't hesitate to tell you which one. I was born and raised in the 650, spent some of the best years of my life at UCSB as a gaucho and for over a decade I was a proud angelino; I effing loved└A, but it was ready to fly so I’ve spread my wings to the Pacific North Wonderland and can’t wait to dive into new adventures!
