Is there any way to see what day each performance is? I want to know if I need to take a day off to see Radiolab!!

That promo shot looks classic Star Trek.

@Tim: Didn't you hear? Neko Case is starring the third re-booted Trek film: Star Trek: I Wish I Was the Moon.

Here is the complete lineup for now. I wouldn't be surprised if they add a couple more artists in the next few months. I'm particularly excited for Medeski Martin and Wood!
