Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory -- any idea what these are and why they are doing this? !! 🙂

It looks like they're called Pine Processionary caterpillars (but, like many people have commented, I would just call them "excellent at merging".)

Vicious creatures ! Covered with prickles, v painful reaction. if you touch them , swelling and extremely painful

One line...better for wind resistance when you're travelling at incredible speeds 🙂

Ok I though of something totally different but butterfly mines work too😂

After reading the Wikipedia link, avoid these nasty...nasty critters . UCK !

Anyone know what kind of caterpillar this is and why they are doing this? Amazing!

Proof that caterpillars are better drivers then RI drivers! Look at the orderly merge! beautiful!

Look at that! There's alternate merge in the world of caterpillars, too!

Caterpillars merge more nicely than Memphis drivers.

Wow, even with the zipper merge!?!

Holy caterpillars Batman!! Lol


They even know how to "merge"!

Are you sure? I don't see any lunch buckets!

This is amazing!!!


Well at least caterpillars know how to merge lol

Makes it easier to do the conga!

Wondering what they turn into? Anyone know?

Upstate Rubdown is an acoustic septet drawing inspiration from every corner and decade of America's musical heritage. Based in New York State's Hudson Valley region, the band has spent years cultivating its sound, and continues to grow by the tune. The instrumentation includes Harry D'Agostino on upright bass, Ryan Chappell on mandolin, Dean Mahoney on cajón, and Christian Joao on flute and alto/baritone saxophone. The dynamic rhythm section supports a three part vocal harmony powerhouse of founding members Mary Kenney and Melanie Glenn with recent Nashville-transplant Allison Olender.

Over its five year history, the band has played in more than twenty states, from intimate house concerts to prominent festival stages, including Mountain Jam, Frendly Gathering, and Green River Festival. The band has opened for Cory Henry, Phox, The Felice Brothers, and many others.

Otis Mountain Get Down captures the heart of the matter:

"Pulling from the greatest corners of American music, this group has the power to get feet moving with or without amplification. Like fresh-farmed vegetables, their music is as organic as it is good for you. From foot-stomping bass, highlighted by the slap of a cajon, to the familiar strums of the mandolin over a wailing saxophone – there’s so much going on instrumentally that when the harmonious lead vocalists chime in, the result is nothing short of a homegrown hurricane of sound."

“The Carter Family for the millennial generation...The band coined the term ‘guerrilla roots’ to describe its sound, which draws on early-20th-century Americana/bluegrass music, ‘repurposed for a modern audience.’” (The Boston Globe)
Damn Tall Buildings was born in January of 2013, busking on Newbury Street in Boston, MA. Through street performing, this dynamic quartet formed the foundation for the fully-immersive and truly electrifying performance for which they are known today. Priding themselves on their robust tour schedule, DTB has performed at numerous venues and festivals across the continental U.S. – most recently including GreyFox Bluegrass Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass On The Bogs, Vinegrass, and FreshGrass Festival (where they were awarded 2nd place in the 2016 band competition). During the span of these tours, they've shared the stage with artists such as The California Honeydrops, The Dustbowl Revival, Sierra Hull, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Gangstagrass, and many more.

The Parlor Room

Don't miss roots-rock songwriter Szlachetka this Saturday, April 29 at The Parlor Room. Rolling Stone recently named him to their list of 10 Artists You Need to Know.

Grab your tickets here:

Szlachetka at The Parlor RoomApr 29, 7:30pmThe Parlor Room"SZLACHETKA is constantly able to imbue his music with the exaltation and resilience of a classic Bruce Springsteen record, while also delivering the humanity and warmth of John Prine’s best songwriting." ~ Jackson Truax, Shakedown News

SZLACHETKA (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) draws your gaze back to a simpler time when music was less about stylized production and more about its experiential nature. His songwriting finds inspiration in the threads that connect us, weaving a tapestry of familiar moments that pay homage to the past while leaning into a future that promises both wonder and grace. Now based in Nashville, SZLACHETKA grew up in New England and began his career as the frontman for the acclaimed roots-rock band, The Northstar Session, with whom he recorded five albums and appeared in the second season of TV’s “Parenthood”.

Join us for an intimate evening of storytelling and a preview of SZLACHETKA's sophmore solo album, 'Heart of My Hometown' which Rolling Stone refers to as "a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland... a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he's left behind in the rearview mirror."
