Comments Off

Day two of Outside Lands Music Festival flooded the fog bed forest with more concert-goers than the festival has ever seen.  The day featured classic and fresh rock sets alike among a varied set of artists that made it difficult to choose between acts.  An impressively huge crowd gathered around the Lands End main stage early in day two to see British rockers The Kooks for some feel good music to start the day. Opening the set with “Junk of the Heart (Happy),” lead singer Luke Pritchard’s nasal-y vocals paired with the upbeat tempos continued throughout the steady set. Read more…

The Hero Stays Put

These four boys from Nova Scotia know exactly what they are trying to do on their debut LP, Saturnalia Regalia!. Monomyth is all about the hooks, the height and the happy. The melodies are catchy as heck, the guitars are unapologetically treble-y and echo-y and the overall feeling from these eight songs is positivity. Even as the songs veer from the pocket of pop to the realm of psych-metal, they retain a Turtles-esque ’60s-gleefulness. Read more…

Bonnaroo 2014: Day Four

June 26th, 2014
Comments Off

Sun-baked, slightly dehydrated and still wearing glow sticks from the previous nights, everyone felt the fourth day of Bonnaroo Music Festival sneak up. Nevertheless, in Bonnaroo fashion, it did not dampen any of the festivities. A cardboard neon cutout of Hank from King of the Hill with the words “Turn Down For What?” written underneath the image made this clear. With that mantra still in the Tennessee air, it was easy to see that although it was the last day, it did not mute the excitement for the bands to come. Read more…

The clouds withheld their rain, opting instead to roll on by; but that did not stop the heat from cranking up for day three on The Farm. ‘Roovians trudged from their campsites wielded a variety of sticks to help spot their clans, carried umbrellas to hide from the heat or bared it all to soak up the sun.

Nevertheless, music lovers alike could not ignore the plethora of amazing bands that were lined up throughout the day. Read more…

Dark clouds were rolling in as a reminder that we were, in fact, in the middle of nowhere and susceptible to the elements on The Farm. The damp humidity and sprinkles of rain, however, did not hold anyone back from their use of face paint, costumes or positive vibes. A thirteen-foot VW bus, the world’s largest VW bus to be exact, rolled through the grounds where “Walter The Bus” inspires creativity, freedom and connectivity. Read more…
