Your New Woodstock
I'll occasionally list contemporary bands that I think would have fit right in at Woodstock in 1969...if we had a time machine. Can't be a HUGE name band and must be GREAT live. In other words, they should be like a Santana was.
There are plenty of jam bands and UM has been around nearly 20 years, but I'd still like them at my Woodstock. Go Irish.
A bit more than a taste…
I heard an interview with Ken Babbs, Merry Prankster and original "hippie." When asked who he listens to today, without hesitation, he said, "Alt+J." Pretty high (pun intended) recommendation.
