Widespread Panic coming to Riverbend
Another Riverbend act is announced!
Widespread Panic is taking the Coke stage Saturday, June 7th.
The band started in Athens, GA in the late 80's and has been running wide open since. Widespread Panic is known for their marathon jam sessions, and a very dedicated following. Widespread Panic holds the record for the number of sold out performances at Philips Arena in Atlanta at 20 shows.
Widespread Panic is also know for their philanthropic endeavors which is one reason Friends of the Festival is collaborating with Chattanooga Area Food Bank to help benefit their efforts. The food bank will be kicking off a 'text to give' campaign during the Riverbend Festival as well as other efforts to help families in the Tennessee Valley.
Friends of the Festival say they have been courting the band for at least a decade and are excited the band is finally coming to the Scenic City.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Barbie dolls, Disney princesses -- "Breaking Bad" action figures? A Florida mom had trouble with them all being sold under the same roof -- and now, Toys R Us agrees. The nationwide retailer is pulling its set of four collectible dolls based on characters of AMC's hit series -- which centers on a high school chemistry teacher who mixes and sells crystal meth. The toys have a detachable bag of cash -- and even a bag of make-believe meth. The mom launched an online petition to end the sales -- and a Toys R Us rep says the dolls are on "indefinite sabbatical." Toys R Us notes the Breaking Bad characters are sold in limited quantities and are placed in a part of the store featuring adult action figures.
AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports action figures based on the TV series "Breaking Bad" are coming off the shelves at a major retailer.

Here's a bit of the "Breaking Bad" theme.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An actress who was in "Django Unchained" had said she was racially profiled -- but Los Angeles authorities say she was showing a lot more than her profile when she and her boyfriend were canoodling in their car. Daniele Watts, who is black, and her white boyfriend, are both charged with lewd conduct. The charge carries a potential sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Both are free pending arraignment. Authorities say they had received calls that the couple was having sex in the car. Watts says she and her boyfriend were just kissing -- and were profiled because they are of mixed race.

NEW YORK (AP) -- "Saturday Night Live" is taking another shot at making its cast more diverse. It has added another black woman to the mix. Leslie Jones had been a writer on the show last season. The NBC show has been criticized in recent years for not having a black woman among its regular or featured players -- and for lacking diversity among other minority groups. Jones joins black comedian Sasheer Zamata, who joined the SNL cast in January.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- She has been sentenced to prison. But a star of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" says she'd like to do her time at a halfway house, instead. Teresa Giudice (JOO'-dys) has filed a letter through her lawyer, making the request. She's sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy. The government opposes her request that all but three months of her sentence to be spent at a halfway house. Her husband, Joe, was sentenced to 41 months.
AUBURN, Wash. (AP) -- Police near Seattle say they had been in touch on and off with actress Misty Upham -- before she disappeared and was found dead in a ravine last week. Police in Auburn, Washington say they reached out to Upham four times since July, 2013 -- and each time she agreed to be taken to a hospital for evaluation. Once she told authorities she hurt herself jumping out of a second-story window. Authorities are still trying to determine what caused Upham's death. Medical examiners say she died Oct. 6, the same day her family reported she was missing -- and was suicidal. Upham was in the movies "August: Osage County," "Frozen River" and "Django Unchained."
NEW YORK (AP) -- It's something fans of Barbara Walters will find "fascinating" -- how someone who supposedly retired from TV is still on it so much. Walters said last year that the 2013 edition of the "10 Most Fascinating People" telecast would be her last. But ABC now says she will have another this year. Among those being featured this time: Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler and Scarlett Johansson. The special airs Dec. 14.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Most people would agree it takes a lot of you-know-what to mess with the President of the United States. Yet, that's just what one guy did to the chief executive when he showed up to cast an early ballot in Chicago on Monday. A young woman was voting next to Barack Obama when her boyfriend piped up: "Mr. President, don't touch my girlfriend." Obama played it off, saying: "There's an example of a brother just embarrassing me for no reason." He took it a step further, planting a kiss on the woman and telling her: "Give him something to talk about."
