Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready has announced his first performance since Pearl Jam postponed their 2020 North American tour. Today, Outlaw Partners announced the full lineup including eight acts for this summer’s Peak to Sky music event that will take place in Big Sky, Montana on August 7 and August 8 at the Big Sky Events Arena in Town Center.
Sheryl Crow will headline on Friday, August 7. The nine-time Grammy Award winning artist, accompanied by her band, will bring her well known classics and sounds from her new album, “Threads,” to the stage beneath the backdrop of the iconic Lone Peak.
Headliners for Saturday, August 8 include Wilco and Sleater-Kinney as part of their newly announced “It’s Time” Summer 2020 co-headlining tour. Wilco, a Chicago based powerhouse and Grammy Award winning alternative rock band, has over two decades of musical experience, 10 studio albums, and their own record label among other acclaims. Sleater-Kinney, comprised of Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein, who also starred in Portlandia, formed in the ‘90s in Olympia, Washington. The female rock band has been dubbed ‘punk rock heroes’ by fans and critics alike, including Rolling Stone who noted the fusion as “radical feminism and challenging, fiery punk.”
On Friday, guests will be treated to a comedy and music show by Fred Armisen, actor, comedian, writer, producer and musician best known for his role in Portlandia and as a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 2002 until 2013. Warming up the stage for their Nashville neighbor, Jamie McLean Band will open for Crow with fiery guitar and southern soul vocals.
Saturday’s lineup will also include the desert disco band Kolars, and Peak to Sky curator Mike McCready & Friends who will take the main stage following Wilco and Sleater-Kinney. Earlier in the afternoon, McCready will present Life in Polaroids – a glimpse into his coffee table book, “Of Potato Heads and Polaroids” offering perspective into his world inside and outside of Pearl Jam.
A family friendly show by Caspar Babypants, also known as Chris Ballew, twice Grammy nominated lead singer and songwriter for the Seattle band The Presidents of the United States of America, will take place Saturday morning under the venue’s ‘big top’ tent.
