Hedgpeth Festival

In a little over a month, Hedgpeth will be moving into my backyard from July 28-29 in Twin Lakes, WI. With over 50 bands already named to this year's inaugural lineup including The Flaming Lips and the return of Primus, I don't think I can miss this (hopefully I can recover for a wedding on the 30th). Tickets are cheap at $25 for a 1-day pass and the 2-day pass is only $50 (compare that to grass seats for DMB at $55). Other bands include Minus The Bear, Rusted Root, Peeping Tom, Kings of Leon, Hot Hot Heat, Slightly Stoopid, Freshwater Collins and many more.

So you wanna get up and dance? Well, Kinetix definately brings that energy with their funk and rock thats definately gets you moving. Kinetix got their start by playing shows in Denver and have recently competed in Battlerusa succesfully making it to this year's 10,000 Lakes Festival. This 5 piece made up of Eric Blumfeld (keyboards/vocals), Adam Lufkin (acoustic guitar/vocals), Jordan Linit (electric guitar), Josh Fairman (bass), and Jack Gargan (drums) are definately a band I'll be checking out this year at 10KLF.

Live from the Archives - Andrew Bird

While watching the Roo this year, well I guess streaming the Roo I was able to catch Andrew Bird's set. I wasn't really familar with Andrew Bird's music, but Bird definately can play a mean violin (if there is such a thing). I grabbed a pretty good set from March 26th, 2005 from the Columbia Club in Berlin.

1. Intro
2. Sovay
3. Why?
4. A Nervous Tick Motion of the Head to the Left
5. Fake Palindromes
6. Skin is, My
7. Lull

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I've been pretending to be busy. However, State Radio has caught my ear as of late with with their politically charged messages and of course Charlie Stokes being a favorite of mine from his time with Dispatch.

TLG's Taught To Be Proud

So as some of you might know, I'm pretty obsessed with Tea Leaf Green. I've already seen them four times, and hopefully a few more by the end of the year. Anyways, on TLG's Myspace page you can now download their studio version of "Taught to be Proud".


So go download it, and if you like it buy the album.
