British Storm & Woodstock Anniversary in August

On consecutive weekends this month, we'll feature a couple of special Acoustic Storms to celebrate the Summer Olympics and the anniversary of Woodstock.
With London as the host city for a record third time since the Olympics began, we'll play all British artists the weekend of 8/11-12 on the "U.K. Storm."  The Rolling Stones will take the honors in the Eye of The Storm, as the Stones commemorate their 50th anniversary as a band.
For the weekend of 8/18-8/19, we'll remember Woodstock with Storm mini-sets consisting of artists who performed at that historic music festival at Yasgur's Farm in upstate New York in August, 1969.  A special double-bill of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin will top the bill in the Eye of The Storm. 
Here's the line-up for August:
8/4-8/5 BILLY JOEL
8/11-8/12 ROLLING STONES (U.K. Storm)
8/18-8/19 JIMI HENDRIX & JANIS JOPLIN (Woodstock Storm)
8/25-8/26 JACKSON BROWNE (Solo & Acoustic)
