A Preview for Wild Woods Music & Arts Festival
Wild Woods Music & Arts Festival August 8th-10th, 2014 Croyden, NH Written by Mitch Smith “We actually had to check the airspace over the grounds to make sure there weren’t any planes crossing over because of our lasers and the lightshows and all that. So, yeah,” Jeff Blair’s disembodied, laughing voice was saying over the phone, “our lights and production and the whole visual aspect of Wild Woods is going to be… legit.” I paused for a moment at this thought. “Well, yeah, sounds pretty legit if you’ve got to look into that sort of thing,” I eventually responded.

Groove Music and Arts Fest takes over Shadows Ranch: Festival Review
Covered in glitter by: Abby Benjamin The uniqueness of each festival experience never ceases to amaze me.  No matter how many festivals you have under your cute fairy utility belt, each one still has its own flavor, personality, and bundle of memorable conversations and experiences. Shadows Ranch is one of my favorite festival venues.  It’s comparable in feel to Horning’s Hideout outside of Portland, OR and Spirit of the Suwannee near Jacksonville, FL.  However, Shadows Ranch provides a much smaller and more intimate experience.  The campground is nestled in Georgetown, CO, 45 minutes outside of Denver.  Its lush green forest...

Light the Fuse: a Review of Electric Forest 2014 June 26-29, 2014 Rothbury, MI Written by Alex Kratzert “Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” ― Hunter S. Thompson      On the early morning of June 26th, just as...
The Funky Groove of Kung Fu
An Interview with Tim Palmieri of Kung Fu Electric Forest Music Festival Rothbury, MI Written by Alex Kratzert At about 3:00 PM on Sunday, June 29th 2014, I was sitting in the media tent flipping through photos, guzzling water and nursing down a chicken quesadilla. There was a threat of rain for that day and photographers became very anxious and curious as to how their gear would hold up. Then the band Kung Fu – Adrien Tramontano (drums), Chris DeAngelis (bass), Rob Somerville (saxophone), Todd Stoops (keyboard), and Tim Palmieri (guitar) – who had played a one o’clock set, rolled...
