The Werks | Baltimore Soundstage | Batimore, MD | 11/3/12

Sometimes all that a band needs to do is throw a small party before your tour, inviting your closest friends to wish you luck as you head out on your first major tour across America.  Or you can do things like The Dayton, OH bred psychedelic powerhouse band The Werks, who after their now legendary performances at their own festival, aptly named Werk Out, immediately launched

Sam Bush | Quixotes | Denver, CO | 11/2/2012 | Review

Bluegrass has become more obscured than ever. Is there even such a thing as “pure” bluegrass?

The only detractor to using the word jazz to describe a genre of music that is too many different progressions have made it useless as an adjective. What does it mean when something is “jazzy”?
