Submitted by Shore Fire Media on Fri, 07/28/2017 - 11:08 am

Academy Award-nominated “king of indie animation” Bill Plympton takes viewers on a Technicolor ride to outer space, an underwater world filled with robots, and a concert performed by banjo-slinging aliens in the new video for roots-rocker Jackie Greene’s “Modern Lives."

In a time where the music industry is topsy-turvy, we need artists like Karl Denson more than ever. The multifarious Denson fares innately in different genres, as bandleader or sideman, and paid his dues as a touring musician that came into his own. The San Diego based saxophonist first gained recognition as a member of Lenny Kravitz and quickly soon after broke through in the A-list jazz circuit.

While the so-called 73,000-acre Valley Fire, which burned more than 500 homes, raged as close as 30 miles away, the two-day festival site at Johnson’s Beach on the Russian River in the small, Bohemian town of Guerneville, California, was smoke-free.
