After I witness a transformative set of music, this is what inevitably occurs when the dust settles. After a band plays high energy, pedal-to-the-metal music for a cool 100-minutes, it’s difficult to ascertain which pieces stood out as the highlights among many other highlights – the crème de la crème. That’s why I try to balance dancing and having fun with taking notes in the middle of a song or right after it ends. It’s the only way I can filter the musical narrative and determine the truly supernal from the “merely” superb.

Just as the full moon is infiltrating its way into the Bay Area, casting an illuminating white light over the Fillmore...Peeps await for the epic improvisational elements that seem to have a ripple effect from an eclectic group who derived their name from Jack Kerouac's short story, "October In The Rain".
Every artist, at some point in their career, has that defining, milestone performance- a moment that inspires the envy and white lies of those who failed to attend. For Railroad Earth, that moment was July 12th, 2013, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, outside of Denver.
For anyone who didn’t make it last year, short of rubbing your nose in it, here’s a bit of what you missed:
