Epsilona will replace Joseph In The Well for the rescheduled show with  Geographer headlining

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (June 20, 2016) – Concerts in the Park is bringing another Northern California musical talent, Epsilona, to the stage for the August 5 season finale concert, with headliner Geographer. Epsilona will take the place of Joseph In the Well from the original lineup of the May 20 concert that was rescheduled to August 5 because of rain. Joseph In The Well is unable to play the encore show due to scheduling conflicts.

Epsilona is a local favorite, indie-psych groove rock group with a growing fan base, known for their unique psych-pop sound. In November 2015 they played a sold out show at Harlow’s, to release their debut EP, ­­­­­­­­“Thinkers,” and they were the headline performance at First Festival this past Saturday where they announced their CIP concert participation.

“­­­­­Epsilona is a great addition to an already killer lineup this season,” said Sureena Johl, events manager with Downtown Sacramento Partnership. “They were number one on the band waitlist and we couldn’t have asked for a better substitute for our season finale concert.”
