Widely regarded as one of the greatest live bands of their generation, My Morning Jacket’s spectacle of a live show has become the stuff of legend and brings their “Spontaneous Curation Series” to the Mann August 17th with special guest Band of Horses.

"Curating spontaneously is best achieved by communication within a community because otherwise, curating in a vacuum can lead one to spontaneously combust.  However, a spontaneously curated show is the best way to achieve collective musical combustion.  Concurrently, we are crazed with excitement and curiosity to see how Roll Call and concert goers spontaneously contribute to our eclectic collective curation!" - My Morning Jacket

Fan club members and concert goers are asked to assist in curating each night's set list through Twitter and the Roll Call Forum. The series will continue to comprise of the entire My Morning Jacket album catalogue and rarities, adding to the spontaneity and uniqueness each night. Be sure to use the hashtag #MMJPhilly and @mymorningjacket to participate.
