Description

Roots Hoot House Concerts is pleased to once again present our 12th annual summer extravaganza we call SWAMP STOMP! Swamp Stomp 12 will happen on Saturday, July 20 at our usual West Kingston, R.I. location near the entrance to The Great Swamp. Headlining SS12 will be The mekons in their only New England appearance. Also appearing will be Jon Langford's Four Lost Souls & friends, Ruby Boots, and two additional to-be-announced acts. Gates will open at 1 pm and music starting at 2 pm and continuing until about 9:30 or so.

Event photo of mekons is by Ricky Malpas.

We will also welcome back poster artist extraordinaire Pete Cardoso from Ghost-Town Design (www.ghost-town.net) who will once again be creating a commemorative poster for the event. Also back on board will be Tilly's Cheesesteaks of West Kingston providing swift food delivery service to the Swamp Stomp site.

Swamp Stomp is a BYO-everything event from beverages to food to whatever turns you on and enjoy what promises to a hot day of rock & roll at a beautiful property situated in the swampy, backwoods of West Kingston, RI. Grounds will open at 1:00 PM on the day of the event with music beginning at 2 pm and continuing until 9 pm or so. Additional information for Swamp Stomp 11 can be obtained by contacting Roots Hoot House Concerts via email at rootshoot@cox.net or by phone at 401-965-0833.

HISTORY of SWAMP SWAMP:

Begun in 2008, Swamp Stomp has brought the likes of The Sadies, The Waco Brothers, Bottle Rockets, Marah, Valerie June, Lydia Loveless, Ha Ha Tonka, The Yawpers, Water Liars, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, T-Model Ford, JP Harris & The Tough Choices, Laura Cantrell, Kevin Gordon, Amy LaVere, Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3, Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons, The Silks, Toy Soldiers, Eric Ambel, Patrick Sweany, Paul Burch, Girls on Grass, Cordero, Al Scorch, Mark Cutler, Girls Guns & Glory, Dollar Store, Smith & Weeden, and Shacklehands to its beautiful locale in the wilds of West Kingston. Put simply, a GREAT and VERY COOL event.

SWAMP STOMP is an 18-and-over event and please, no pets. It will again be a BYOB/picnic event (i.e., bring whatever youd like to eat or drink). All we ask is that you carry out whatever you brought in.

EVENT DO's & DON'T's:

First off, the location is a fairly large and sprawling yard.

DO bring your own chairs & blankets if you prefer to sit in the yard & listen to the bands. People will most likely be standing in the stage area.

DO bring your own provisions: food & drink and whatever cups, utensils, plates, etc. you may need. We are not supplying anything.

DO bring something to cart your garbage & bottles/cans out at the end of the event.

Absolutely DO bring your own mosquito repellent. It gets VERY buggy late in the day.

We recommend a flashlight as the road will be pretty dark when the show ends.

If possible, DO carpool as parking is on the road only.
