Despite the weather forecasts throughout the few days prior to the event, mother nature decided she’d cooperate with the city of Cincinnati last weekend as Bunbury Music Festival took place at Yeatman’s Cove and Sawyer Point. The venue sits along the Ohio River, with three of Cincinnati’s bridges and several skyscrapers looming above the stages. Northern Kentucky’s neighborhoods sit just across the river, providing the perfect backdrop for an urban music festival.
Fall Out Boy, Greta Van Fleet, The 1975, Girl Talk and Run The Jewels will headline the 2019 Bunbury Music Festival, announced today by PromoWest Productions. One of the country’s premier music festivals now celebrating its eighth year, Bunbury will return to downtown Cincinnati’s Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove, transforming the banks of the Ohio River into a vibrant three-day festival experience May 31-June 2, 2019. Bunbury has received critical acclaim from Billboard, USA Today, Pollstar and Yahoo!

Treasure Island is a weird place. Named after the Robert Louis Stevenson book, Treasure Island was constructed (yes, constructed) in the 1930s as an airport. When that idea was scrapped, it was converted into a location to hold California’s world’s fair in 1939-1940. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the island was converted into a full naval base. From then on the island was rarely used, sitting as a reminder of World War II to the many commuters crossing the Bay Bridge. In 2005 the navy sold the island back to the city of San Francisco, prompting a repurposing of the grounds.
Festivals are always welcome in the NYC area that don't involve traveling to New Jersey (All Points West), electronic dance music (Electric Zoo) or taking a crowded ferry (Governors Ball, HARD Fest, Rock The Bells). So, it's a shame that NYC was not as receptive to the inaugural year of Catalpa, which was held in the convenient location of Randall's Island.
In the midst of a non-stop touring run, Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis) linked up with legendary Houston producer and DJ OG Ron C to present a screwed and chopped version of Gillis' last full length release, All Day. The remixed version of the album is being titled Purple All Day and is available for download here.
My day began a bit late on Friday. I would like to say it’s because I found a basket of kittens and was completely distracted...or that I was showering or something like that. But no...I got a late start because the moment I got to Wakarusa on Thursday...I lost my keys. I had to ride back to Fayetteville, whip up yesterday’s review and head back to Mulberry Mountain. But it’s never a bad thing to have to make that beautiful drive one more time.
