Sasquatchin’ Day 3: Out With A Roar, Not A Wimper

I didn’t realize until I was deep in it, but Sunday was packed with more acts that I wanted to see and/or photograph than any other day.

Sasquatch 2014, Day 2

Show Date: May 24, 2014

Saturday turned out to be the sunniest and hottest day of the weekend. It seemed that a good amount of the festival goers tended to skip the first few acts and the grounds didn’t start to really fill up until 4:00 or 5:00. Most of us however knew there was good music to be heard, […]

Recommended festival: Pickathon 2012 {August 3-5}

We know, we know — Pickathon? you say, with an air of disbelief. Isn't that a bunch of beardy hippies with banjos out on a farm someplace in rural Oregon? Do they even have wi-fi? Fret not, dear imaginary friends: we are here to share the good news, which is the plain and simple fact […]

What songs are on your summer playlist?

{Photo:  Steve Louie} The weather has finally started to cooperate and prove it still has a sunny side.  All this sun-infused summer bliss means two things: 1. It's time to work on our summer music mix tapes 2. The Capitol Hill Block Party is right around the corner, and we all had better start prepping! […]
