Greensky Bluegrass Spells 'BLOODBATH' at their Halloween Show

Greensky Bluegrass fans arriving to The Neptune Theatre on Halloween were greeted to a stage that looked like a scene from a horror film. Tables with bloody sheets covering what seemed to be bodies, rusty saws, axes, shovels and grinders strewn about.  With no official announcement of what the night held in store, it seemed right away the show would be taking a dark course.  Greensky entered the stage in darkness and began the show with an eery intro and when 'Beat It' kicked in, the lights came up to reveal an undead, bloody mess.

Greensky Bluegrass | Fox Theater | 10/24/13 | Review & Photos

Halloween looms, and while most avid local music-goers are planning extravagant costumes for the Hallow’s Eve bash of their choice; last weekend the Fox Theatre hosted a rousing 2-night stand by growing “newgrass” favorites Greensky Bluegrass.

Harvest Music Festival 2013: Day3 on Mulberry Mountain

Saturday was a wonderful day! It started with sunshine, birds and bluegrass and ended with stars, hippies and bluegrass. The day promised to be a great one just because of the fact it was the last day of the festival. The lineup was just as good as the other days, leaving nobody disappointed. I think the only person who was sad about Saturday was the nearly-legally-blind dude I met this morning who lost his glasses. Bummer.

Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festival is the best that Mulberry Mountain has to offer. While Wakarusa pulses to the vibrant beat of youth culture and features many of today’s top acts across varying musical genres, Harvest offers an entirely different experience that has a way of twiddling itself into one’s heart.

Northwest String Summit 2013 | Review & Photos

Sometimes I find it truly incredible how different each festival is. Sure, when you poke around in different genres you’re going to have a different vibe, but even within the realm of strings and grass, you’ll find the good and you’ll find the bad. Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout in Oregon doesn’t exactly make it into either category. I think it stands alone in the “this is the most amazing, beautiful, compelling, warming, etc.

Electric Forest Festival 2013 | Review & Photos

I’ve read Treasure Island, Last of the Mohicans, Wizard of the Oz, Lord of the Rings, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Tarzan and my all-time favorite, Of Mice and Men.  All these stories do not compare with the living story book of Electric Forest 2013.  There was a hole in a tree and I fell in.  Tumbling down the black hole there was voice that told a story.  It went like this:  Once upon a time at a grand ranch in Michigan there was a magical forest.  In that forest lived the happy go lucky loving tribe of 40,0
