Get your 4th of July fireworks fix, but rest up becuase we're keeping the party going on July 5th. Here's the Stones Throw Picnic run down for Saturday.
Update: We regret to inform you that Madlib will not be performing at Stones Throw Picnic due to a family illness. This was a matter that could not be foreseen, and our support and understanding go out to him and his family.
From Stones Throw Picnic curator Wyatt Closs: "As his broader family of fans, Stones Throw Picnic will miss Madlib's presence and talent tremendously. Our time together will honor him, as it will be one filled with good people and great music. With their sets, The Lions, DaM-FunK and Peanut Butter Wolf of the Stones Throw Records label will bring to life an ambitious, chocked-full day. And don't rule out a special guest or two."
