To return to a point in your life that you have already lived is metaphysical. Déjà vu, as most of us call it, feels mystical, even if it has a chemical explanation. Scientific evidence aside, to relive something that you have lived before is an experience that seems to connect us with something beyond ourselves.

But to experience déjà vu and to be able to improve upon the actions that once were? Now that is something different altogether.
How grand is it that in a thriving music culture we find ourselves blessed with genre specific events. Too often I find a billing with ‘everything plus the kitchen sink’.

That’s not a good sign with an outdoor festival, but these Coloradoans are a hardy lot and will dance to music no matter the condition. For Blake Himert and his sound crew, though, it’s a lot of extra tarping and strategic towel placement, which they already did a bit Friday night. Luckily, what rain we did have was light that came mid-afternoon.
