“Wave the flag, pop the bag, rock the boat, skin the goat, shine your shoes, light your fuse, can you use them ol’ U.S. Blues?”

For some reason the 4th of July has always been really big with hippies. Is it all those trippy AF colors or just the opportunity to ironically rock Uncle Sam hats? Whatever the case, some stone cold vibey classics have spawned from this most patriotic of holidays, from The Dead’s paranoid, coked-out epic “U.S. Blues” to Moby Grape getting naked in the name of freedom on “Naked If I Want To”. We celebrate them all today at Niche Appeal.

So light one up and have a very hippie 4th.
