Festival 8…Phishing in the Desert

Jamband, Phish has announced they are coming to Southern California in October…Halloween to be exact. It’s going to be called “Festival 8” and if it’s certain to be one heck of a party in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Club. This is the same location used by the Coachella Music Festival. The dates are 10/30, 10/31 and 11/1.

I Love Rothbury Stew

If I told you that for the Fourth of July next year, you should go to central Michigan for four days, you’d likely call me crazy. I’d call me crazy, but nun the less, that’s what I did and I’ll never be the same again. I attended the Rothbury Music Festival.

In a giant pot, put in a heaping helping of The Dead, String Cheese Incident, Keller Williams, The Black Crowes, and Willie Nelson. Then slice up some Railroad Earth, STS9, Ani DeFranco, Yonder Mountain String Band, Toots & The Maytals and Damian Marley & NAS. Finish it all off with a big dollop of Bob Dylan serve it up with some Disco Biscuits and garnished with 20 other great bands and you’ve got yourself a Rothbury Stew. Yes, Varuka, the Rothburies do taste like Rothburies.
