As I was walking on the hill in Boulder to get some Chinese food and a beer before the show, I passed by a very animated and excited Jeff Austin (mandolin player from Yonder Mountain String Band) talking to a friend. It was interesting because he was putting the same energy into the conversation...

It was a nice Mother’s day in Boulder, CO, and is there a better way to spend the evening than with the Toots & the Maytals at the Fox Theatre? There seemed to be a good Rasta vibe permeating through the Fox tonight. The bartenders were all smiles as usual, including long time bar tender Spotty...

Richmond, Virginia is one of those southern cities where one can ‘feel’ the history.. It’s everywhere you look.. There is Monument Avenue, with statues of the heroes -- from a Civil War that is still described by some old timers, as ‘the recent unpleasantness.’ There is the statue to the great...

This is the quote that DJ Simon Posford (Shpongle) asked the crowd as he prepared to blow the minds of the audience. We definitely got Shpongled. The very full crowd of sweaty dancers filled the Fox Theatre on Saturday night to see the renowned DJ on his new tour. I had the pleasure of eating sushi...
