Boston Calling Creates Energetic Weekend

Boston Calling, the bi-annual Boston, MA, music festival, closed out its three-day September line-up with a lunar eclipse to top off a fantastic weekend of music.  Each day featured clear skies, abundant sunshine, and crisp fall weather.  Crowds were vast and the energy seemed to grow with each act, producing a crowd so thick it became hard to move between the two stages.   Committed music fans waited for hours in the same spot in the crowd just to get

Riot Fest - Denver - 2015 | Review & Photos

Riot Fest is a festival of extremes. It is not for the faint of heart. It is a three day multi-genre music festival incorporating metal, hip-hop, punk, rock, and alternative music. A decade ago, it started in Chicago, and thankfully has moved to Denver and Toronto as well. It has an old school carnival feel to it with vendors and sideshow performances. This year, it took place at the National Western Complex grounds where they usually host one of the largest stock shows and rodeos in the world.

Lockn' Festival 2015 | Day 4 in Virginia

“Wake up. Time to go to church,” urges Bill to his partner Jody the Jedi, my next door neighbors at camp. “I missed the show last year and it’s not happening again.”

Lockn' Festival 2015 | Day 3 in Virginia

The rain started early Saturday morning, just after the Umphrey‘s McGee set closed up shop. That dope encore was legit. The intermittent downpours left over 5 inches of rain in their wake on the fields of Oakridge. Personally, my tent was soaked. The air mattress was now officially a floatation device in the wonderfully glassy sea that previously was the tent floor.

Russian River Festival | Review and Photos

Neighborhood Hero Saves The Day Again

In the wake of an awful set of circumstances, faced with the possibility of a non-existent fall music extravaganza, the fabulous folk of Deadhead Productions have again stepped up to the plate with their announcement of Hillberry 2: The Harvest Moon Festival.  Earlier this year we told you all about the 1stHillberry Music Festival that occurred this August on the Farm outside

Lockn' Festival 2015 | Day 2 in Virginia

I awoke Friday to the sounds of car horns honking at 6 o’clock sharp, as the initial Lockn’ Festival attendees were allowed entrance. We all understand excitement and the urge to share it with the world, but stealing the rarest and most desirable of festival resources is just uncompassionate. A little rudeness will not keep me from “Feeling Alright.” Internal monologue starts, “And so Lockn’ begins. Get up@!

ARISE Music Festival 2015 | Review/Photos

Of all the events that I have covered and shows that I have attended, none sparks or enlightens the soul more than ARISE. Creators and producers Tierro Lee and Paul Bassis have worked extremely hard to craft a festival that has something for everyone. This festival just feels good, like the energy in Maui. The music lineup is extremely diverse, the activities are plentiful, and the vibe is second to none.
