Bumbershoot’s Final Day, Ending On A High Note

Day 3 was a delight, not only was Solange performing (I seriously couldn't wait for that set), but our hometown super stars, ODESZA were capping off the night. But I'll get to that soon enough, lets start from the beginning. The internet is good for many things, one that I discovered recently is to … [Read more...]

Bumbershoot ’16 Opening Day: Cautious Optimism

  We were all wondering how Bumbershoot was going to treat us this year. Would it prove to be on the upswing or are we looking at a change to the basic structure and feel that will leave the "old" festival to the history books. The answer: both.

Gleason Fest 2015: Wow…

This summer, Gleason Fest had a smaller lineup than normal, but not because they couldn't find talent to fill the slots.  With Nahko & Medicine for the People and Appalachia Rising on the bill, it would be upsetting to give them anything less than two large time slots, therefore their sets took … [Read more...]

Bumbercrazy 2015: Lightening, Rain, and Music Music Music

Well, another Bumbershoot in the books and it was a hell of a time. The lineup was chock full of local and national acts, a solid mix that had honestly been lacking in recent years.
