Anyone in the pit for this show? JJ GREY, NMA, Marcus King, Los Lobos....
I am liking this one day lineup!
I will be the guy in the baseball hat and sunglasses. Come by and say hello or Merry Wanee!

Wow, that's a solid lineup!

I can't make it. I have to keep myself from looking at the StAugAmph listings... there's always something good going on there, or at the Ponte Vedra hall. But a four hour drive each way... ack!
:D

I'll be in the pit. Been to this place for several concerts and usually in the pit but never for a show this long. Might have to take some breaks and go find a seat somewhere.

I saw this thread and immediately thought of the old Blackwater Fest at SoSMP. Remember that? Did anyone on here ever go? I think the last year was around 2010ish. Lots of electronic acts if I remember right, and in the dead middle of summer. I love SoSMP as much as anyone, but I can’t even imagine a festival there in August.

I found a Relix review, of the 2010 Blackwater Music Fest ... it refers to it being the *first* Blackwater Fest. (more on that below)

Anyways... 2010 had STS9, Particle, Slightly Stoopid, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Tea Leaf Green, Toubab Krewe, JJ Grey, G Love, Rebelution, Disco Biscuits, and some others... the review said it rained like hell. I suppose that kept the heat bearable. I was at the SOSMP when they had the flood benefit... 2011? That one was in August, and it was HELLA hot. We HAD to hit the pool around happy hour to cool off...

Anyways. It looks like Blackwater ran at SOSMP from 2010 through 2014. Some electronica, but a lot of jammy bands, and a bunch of reggae / reggae-ish bands.

The following is strictly from my (faulty) memory banks: It seems they did Blackwater for a year or two at the StAug Amph before that, 2008 and 2009. And also that it was hosted by JJ Grey & Mofro. I distinctly recall the first one had a mess of great roots acts, including Los Lobos. Coulda shoulda! Perhaps JJ gave up on trying to run a fest, and turned it over to others, and then it moved to the Suwannee...

Good info BB! Turns out my timing was a bit off there! I do remember considering going one year and remember Disco Biscuits was one of the big draws for me so it was probably 2010. I didn’t end up pulling the trigger but that 2010 lineup was indeed solid.
