Keenan's Top 10 Songs of 2010 (with Videos)

It’s hard to believe 2010 is already over (which is probably why this list is so late), as it was one of the biggest and craziest years of my lifetime. I quit working full time to start a business with my fiance, and, as some of you know, mid-way through last year I decided it […]

Bumbershoot 2007: Apples in Stereo

Show Date: September 2, 2007

Every year at Bumbershoot I feel like one show is a reminder for me about what the festival is really about: hanging out with pals in the sun and watching some completely unexpectedly delightful band, preferably in a crowd mixed with friends, fans, hippies, families, and weirdos. Special bonus points if at least one band […]

Athens PopFest 2007: Day 2 with The American Revolution, The Postmarks, Tullycraft, and more…

Show Date: August 10, 2007

I missed the day shows (Atlanta traffic sucks big time and it took 7 hours to pick up a friend at the airport!), but no mind, the night shows more than made up for it. The evening started with Ideal Free Distribution. They were suped-up indie – flush with loud guitar fills and two band […]
