Hey Music Lovers. Its been a minute.
My life has been a little... dull recently. I've decided that the best thing for me to get out of this funk is to focus on what I love. Surrounding myself and being hands on with local and regional music. I've become a new bartender at Doc's Music Hall since the last time you have heard from me. The Street Team has taken a little flop too, but we are still trying to make this summer fun and hit social media networks really hard.
I have also picked a couple of music festivals that I really want to help promote and volunteer. I was very involved with MayDaze and planned on being a large part of Stiknite in the fall. Sadly, Stiknite has been pushed until next summer just so we can figure out a few kinks and make it a better and safer environment. Until then, I want to focus most of my time on Rootwire Music Festival and Hyperion Music Festival!
Rootwire is held in Logan, OH. It is Papadosio's festival so you know it will be good!!! It is the third year, but my first year attending. My roommates have gone both of the previous years. It is a 3 day festival with wooden camping in the middle of nowhere OH. 3 Stages, workshops, art galleries, and yoga! UV Hippo, The Coop, Akara, Ott, See-I, and more are on the line up! August 16-18, 2012! $85 pre-sale so get your tickets fast! Can't wait!!!! (RST)
I don't know too much about Hyperion yet. It is at Stable Studios and is a Herm Production, sooo many lights to blow your mind! The Twin Cats, UV Hippo, Midwest Hype, Skeetones, and more to come. Its only $40 pre-sale, so a festival that won't hurt your pocketbook! September 14-16th. Look into it on facebook!
Thats it for now. About to grab me some dinner at Savages :)
