Rhythms on the Rio 2016: Day One

The monsoons came late to southern Colorado and New Mexico this summer, causing festival promoters to watch the skies. Here in South Fork, CO at the opening of the 11th annual Rhythms on the Rio Music Festival rain-heavy clouds released their payloads earlier in the day, well before the festival opened around 5 pm.

Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival 2016 | Review

I have a moleskine book I keep in my pocket at concerts. My wife gave it to me as a gift years ago. She always gives the best gifts. This tattered little vestige to my musical history is used solely for notes at concerts I am reviewing. Nothing could better embody who I am, not just as a writer, but as a person. Every time I write in the book, it is a process. I have to take the now stretched out elastic rope off of the book, turn to the page marked with the connected bookmark and pick up where I left off.

A Half-Dozen Gems We Caught at Floydfest

The big news over the weekend at the 15th installment of Floydfest was the unfortunate hospitalization and subsequent cancellation of headliner Gregg Allman’s Saturday night set.  But in true Floydfest fashion, the excellent talent evaluators of this year’s five-day festival, dubbed “Dreamweavin’,” had just the type of jam-band superheroes onsite to put together a dream replacement set.

Five Artists Keeping Outside Lands Fresh

There’s a reason everything tends to come back around. Yes, people love nostalgia and hindsight is 20/20, but the consistent resurgence of past trends stems from one thing: a lot of things were just better “back then.” Despite the technological progress made year after year, many photographers still swear up and down by film. Even with the endless possibilities laid out by virtual reality, millions of people still turn to Pokemon for entertainment.

Homegrown Music Festival 2016 | Review

There is so much good that went down at the inaugural Homegrown Music Festival in Ozark, Arkansas. Innovative sustainability efforts, great music and beautiful landscape combined to create one of the most memorable festivals I’ve been to yet. (Plus, free actual bathrooms and showers!) Though relatively small, Homegrown made a big impact on just about everybody who attended.

Kyle Hollingsworth to Kick Off NedFest

Clearly one of Nederland's favorite NedFest artists, when we didn't invite Kyle to play at last year's festival we caught all kinds of flack.
