2013 Firefly Festival Lineup has arrived

19 Feb

That Festival in Delaware, yeah Firefly has done it again with another solid lineup. From top to bottom fans should be jacked up about this one. Lots and lots of great up and coming bands. This is the week after Bonnaroo (which drops its lineup today too) so expect to see many similar artists.

Five For Friday: Passion Pit, The Gaslight Anthem, Slightly Stoopid, Firefly, Guest Blogging

20 Jul

Check it out.  I’m trying something new at DoYouHearTheMusic.com with a Five For Friday post.  The Triple F is five nuggets of musical goodness to get you through the weekend.  In other words, the soundtrack to your weekend begins right here!

  1. Passion Pit – yes some “mental health” issues of Michael Angelakos have forced the band to cancel some July dates but next week their new album Gossamer drops and boy oh boy should you be excited.  If you haven’t yet given a listen, hop on over to NPR to stream the album.
  2. The Gaslight Anthem – the Jersey Boys are back with another rocking album, Handwritten, which will also be released next Tuesday. Their fourth album may very well prove to be their best as the fellas once again bring that Springsteenesque rock and roll but with a more refined conviction.  This album can also be streamed via NPR, HERE.
  3. Slightly Stoopid – Miles and Kyle are back with “Top of the World,” the title track off their seventh studio album which drops August 14, 2012.  Give a listen HERE.
  4. Firefly Music Festival in Delaware began today and you better believe if I still lived on the east coast, I would be there right now.  Fantastic line-up which includes headliners The Killers and The Black Keys as well as some of my favorites, Michael Franti, Allen Stone, Lupe Fiasco, GROUPLOVE, Walk The Moon, CULTS, The Head and The Heart.
  5. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to guest blog for my friend Dayna Roselli.  Check out the post HERE.

Rock on! Dogfish Head’s Firefly Ale

3 Jul

I’m all about good music and a good brew so naturally I thought this was pretty sweet.

 

From the Shanken News Daily:

“Milton, Delaware-based Dogfish Head Brewery has created a limited edition beer to serve at this month’s inaugural Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. Dogfish Head’s Firefly Ale is an English-style Pale Ale brewed with Marris Otter barley and English heritage hops, as well as a late addition of American Calypso hops. The 5%-abv offering will be available on tap at the festival alongside six additional varieties of Dogfish Head brews. Featuring musical acts such as The Killers, The Black Keys and John Legend, the Firefly Music Festival will run from July 20-22.”
