Hoxeyville Music Festival 2010 | Review & Photos

“Get Lost in the Great North Woods” is the perfect way to describe Hoxeyville Music Festival.  The 8th annual festival was held in the Manistee National Forest in Northern Michigan.  Each year Hoxeyville has grown and improved this year followed suit and featured a bigger and better lineup than ever before, cleaner and more organized festival grounds, and the largest crowd to date at around 4,000 people.  One of the greatest things about Hoxeyville is the family atmosphere, whether it was a grandparent and grandchild watching a mid-day set, long lost friends

Len Dell’Amico's Everything Must Go

Dear Dead Heads:

In 1980, the Grateful Dead needed a director to shoot the planned multi-city broadcast of their Halloween show from Radio City Music Hall.   They brought a guy named Len Dell’Amico out to San Francisco for an interview, and he managed to navigate through one large Hell’s Angel and some fat, potent spliffs sufficiently well to persuade Jerry Garcia that he was the guy for the job.  The result was Dead Ahead, which went on to become a platinum home video.

Furthur | Brooklyn, NY | 6/27/2010 | Review

Furthur played this past weekend at MCU Park in Brooklyn New York, home to the Brooklyn Cyclones and just adjacent to one of the most famous amusement parks in the world, Coney Island.   Growing up 10 minutes from NYC I felt almost embarrassed to admit I have never been to Coney Island before.  During Furthur's intermission I spoke to my mom who told me she would come to Coney Island when she was a kid, which really illustrates the longevity (sorry Mom)  of Coney Island.  My first memory as a kid is when The Warriors had to make it b

Live At The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Phil Lesh's Birthday

It was another jam-packed night outside the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. You would have thought you were seeing Furthur on New Year’s Eve 2009 all over again. It was just about impossible to get into line outside the arena as there were so many people walking up and down the cordons with their pointer fingers in the air hoping for some miracle ticket to gain entry into DeadHeads kingdom; a Furthur show.
