BottleRock Here I Come

9 May

I’m missing the first day of BottleRock Napa Valley today but stoked to be heading up to Napa tomorrow morning with my brother to catch a couple days of the first year, four-day festival. A stacked lineup, plenty of great food and wine in addition to plenty of friends making the trek should make for a fun weekend.

Tomorrow it’s all about The Black Keys, The Shins, Alabama Shakes, Vintage Trouble, The Flaming Lips, Dirty Projectors, Andrew Bird, Matt Nathanson, Blues Traveler and more.  Saturday is definitely a power packed day/night of music with Kings of Leon, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Iron & Wine, Jackson Browne, Jane’s Addiction, Donavon Frankenreiter, Allen Stone, Dwight Yoakam, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Sharon Van Etten and more!  Sunday brings it with Zac Brown Band, Michael Franti, Grouplove, Cake, Mavis Staples, Train, The Wallflowers, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Brandi Carlile and more.

Now Playing: GIVERS – “Up Up Up”

24 Jan

It’s Music Monday and what better way to start the week off than listening to GIVERS’ “Up Up Up.”  Hopefully this upbeat track from the pure fun Louisiana rockers will get you going on the right foot and have good vibes running through your veins.

If you’re in the Northwest catch them this week with Ra Ra Riot and for the rest of us, GIVERS will be once again playing SXSW this year.

New Music: Levi’s Pioneer Sessions

25 Aug

Throughout the summer Levi’s has been rolling out a “Pioneer Sessions” campaign and releasing classic tracks recorded by some of today’s most well regarded and hottest artists.  A few of the tracks that really standout to me are: Raphael Saadiq’s cover of The Spinners’ “It’s A Shame,” Passion Pit’s cover of the Smashing Pumpkin’s “Tonight, Tonight,” and John Legend & The Roots’ rendition of Ernie Hines’ “Our Generation.”

Check out www.levispioneersessions.com to download the whole series which also includes tracks by Ryan Bingham, The Dirty Projectors, The Swell Season, She & Him, Nas, Colbie Caillat, The Shins, Jason Mraz, The Kills and Bomba Estereo.
