Rolling Stone names Merriweather Post Pavilion fourth best amphitheater in the country

June 20, 2013

mppThe folks over at fabled rock mag Rolling Stone deemed Merriweather Post Pavilion, the Frank Gehry-designed outdoor music venue in the woods of Columbia, the fourth best amphitheater in U.S. of A., and that’s okay by us.

Getting close to the band is great and all, but if you can’t work that out, few things are better than plopping down on a blanket on the Merriweather lawn and taking in a show amongst the rustling tress under a starlit sky. In addition to booking everyone from Bob Dylan to D’Angelo, the amphitheater is once again set to host the totally free, totally awesome Virgin Mobile FreeFest, which only adds to its radness.

And, as RS rightly points out, not many venues have a sweet album named after them.
