Widespread Panic (#401H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Filling the footsteps of giants such as the Allman Brothers and jamband saints The Grateful Dead, 30-year road veterans Widespread Panic are, unquestionably, one of the most successful jambands of a generation. Melding southern rock, blues-rock, funk and hard rock, the band has risen to elite status among American jam bands. Having embarked on The Wood Tour, their first- ever completely acoustic shows, WP dropped in Underground. An "internet only" ticket, the Bluegrass Underground website survived 50,000 hits per minute; the show sold out in less than 30 seconds! A rare tour from a top band in a fantastically unique venue promises stellar "appointment television. "

Dave Eggar with Amy Lee & Hammerstep (#403H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

One genre-breaking standout performer this season is the ever-amazing virtuoso cellist Dave Eggar. A phenomenal innovator in his own right, Eggar is joined in the Underground by singer Amy Lee (of multi-platinum selling artists Evanescence fame) and the innovative dance troupe Hammerstep ("American Idol"), mixing traditional Irish step dance with hip-hop and tap. The sum is an electrifying, cross-cultural event born in the crucible of the caverns.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit (#404H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Until recently known as a former member of the Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell serves as the point of the Americana spear and one of the country's absolute best young singer-songwriters. Unrepentantly southern, his carefully crafted songs may feel raw, yet are renowned for simultaneously inspiring and intimidating musicians and critics alike. An Americana Music Award Winner, Isbell's new album Southeastern is on NPR radio's 50 Favorite Albums of 2013 - no small feat.
