Lockn' Festival 2013 | Day 4 in Arrington, VA

Aaaaaah.  You have gotten three great nights of music under your belt.  You have had time to have your campsite functioning well and made friends with your neighbors.  You have made it through three days of having very little need to be fiddling around with your cell phone and spent lots of time with the human beings right beside you. You are familiar with the layout of the venue and accepted the fact that you have to walk, literally miles for some depending on where you camped, your @$$ off at times to get were you wanted to be.

Furthur | Red Rocks Ampitheatre | Morrison, CO | 9/21/13 | Review

After kicking off what some are calling the Fare Thee Well Tour with two nights at Red Rocks, it was clear walking up the ramps that there was a sustained energy ready to boil over on Saturday night. After three consecutive late summers on the rocks, Furthur brought out all of the tricks on this run, and finally decided to not only give us the best of, like they had in previous years, but also lots of songs they’d never dusted off in Colorado.

The Dead's Sunshine Daydream is Available Now!

The visual and sonic glory of Sunshine Daydream  hits the small screen and airwaves today. Was it worth the wait? Heck ya!!! There's a 110% chance you will be entranced by Jerry's incredible finger-picking and the mythopoetic imagery that transported those in attendance to "other-worldly" levels. You might even find yourself floating out of your seat, inspired by concert-goers shimmying to the band's elevated boogie.

Lockn' Festival 2013 | Day 1 in Arrington, VA

All the headliners delivered multiple performances that displayed why they were the headliners at Lockn’ Festival and all the up and comers gave performances that ensure that the state of the Jamband genre is in a very good place.  Much of the credit for the scene remaining so strong is due Phil Lesh.

Bruce Hornsby | The Orange Peel | Asheville, NC | 8/9/13 | Review

Bruce Hornsby is an American treasure who continues to be more than obliging when it comes to giving the people what they want.  From 1980’s pop star to worrying some folks at a nearby outdoor venue in 2013 regarding this show drawing “too many Hippies”, his career achievements stretch far and wide.  The collaborations over 30 years are truly impressive, varied and extensive with prime examples being Don Henley,

Anela Lauren | Harpin On The Dead | Review

Grateful Dead music continues to inspire and muse generations of contemporary musicians. When the band played, their music fostered an experience each night that transformed the ordinary bounds of everyday life beyond possibility. A trip into the transcendental. Even if the words and melodies were familiar to followers, something about their approach of spontaneity and improvisation combined with an overarching reworking of Americana made the music familiar and new simultaneously.
