Day 2 of Monolith: From Tokyo to Paris

When I woke up on Sunday morning, it was raining.  I was bummed.  Rain at Red Rocks is only fun if the band is playing a song like Red Rain, Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Looks Like Rain, the Rain Song, Rain Fall Down, or Louisiana Rain.  It also seems to work for Under a Blood Red Sky (aka New Years Day), but for different reasons.  When I got to Red Rocks, however, the rain had ceased, the clouds had thinned, and the sun was poking through in places.  But it didn't feel

Monolith 2008: The Biggest Thing in Indie Rock. Ever.

As long as festival season is still going strong, summer isn't over. In the final calendar weeks of the hot season, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado hosted the Monolith Music Festival, an Indie Rock extravaganza so epic that only a legendary venue like Red Rocks could hold it. Over seventy bands played in a mere two days, spread out over five stages and about ten thousand stairs.

Langerado Music Festival Moves to Miami in 2009

For 2009, the Langerado Music Festival moves to one of Miami's most scenic spots - Bicentennial Park on Biscayne Bay.  It's a new home for the seventh annual event, which will take place March 6-8, 2009; Langerado has enjoyed impressive success and growth in Broward County since 2002.  The move to downtown Miami promises to make Langerado a City Festival that the Magic City can truly call its own. 

Evolution | Backwoods Pondfest | Peru, NY

When I read about the history of the Bazzano sister's in the local Essex, NY paper two weeks ago, I became even more intrigued by the small but powerful Backwoods Pondfest in Peru, NY. Even before our "official" move to the North Country last month, my wife and I had been thinking about attending this year's festival as a way to connect with what our new local music scene has to offer.

Jackson Hole Festival Part II

I woke up in Grand Teton National Park to the sounds of crazy mountain birds, and was glad not to have been eaten by bears or wolves during the night. The festival itself provides no camping but there is plenty to be found in the park and in the surrounding forests. On the drive to the festival grounds, I saw a moose, and nearly 30 people taking a picture of it. There was a lot to look forward to, and anyway I've seen moose before, so I didn't stop until I hit Teton Village.
