Aura 2013
Aura Music & Arts Festival was the perfect way to start the 2013 festival season. The Florida weather was not as warm as expected, but the cold just encouraged everyone to get a little closer.  Aura’s relocation to the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida ended up being a seamless transition. Aura’s grassroots promotion style has increased the number of attendees every year- it has outgrown its previous festival sites and will hopefully call Suwannee its permanent home. The decision to skip set up of Suwannee’s main stage ended up being a good one because it kept the...
The Catskill Chill: A Hidden Gem of Geniality

As we raised ourselves closer to the sky my spirit soared and faint sounds of music...
Conspiratour Fills in the Gaps
The Disco Biscuits are on an “unofficial” hiatus until Camp Bisco (with desperate hopes of a few dates added in between), so for the first time in a long while, there are no Biscuit shows to go see.  Speculation among fans about why this is happening have been through ups and downs over the past year but it seems that everyone has come to an understanding and reluctant acceptance of it.  The Disco Biscuits played a fantastic five night run for New Years with three shows in New York City at Best Buy Theater, and two in Chicago at the...
