Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 25 Days – BØRNS

30 Aug

You’re going to want to say you saw BØRNS at Life is Beautiful this year. Bursting on to the scene in 2015, Garrett Borns is an indie-pop star in the making. If you’re a fan of Passion Pit, Priory, Saint Motel and MisterWives, you’re going to love BØRNS. I got my first live glimpse at BØRNS at SXSW this year and have followed his performances since, boy are you in for a treat at Life is Beautiful! When we drop the schedule be sure to add him to your schedule and let him just take you on a dreamy set while you bask in the Vegas sunshine! 25 days; see you soon!!

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 2 Days – Artist of the Day: Phish

5 Jun

I think everyone would agree that Phish has played a monumental role in both the music industry and festival circuit, and with a legion of fans all over the globe, it should be quite the special performance closing out Bonnaroo XI.  Slated to play two sets, it should be four hours of bliss on the farm as the festival comes to a close for another year.

I remember the first time seeing Phish was in 1996 at America West Arena in Phoenix (part of my DoYouHeartheMusic.com ticket stub background image) and how excited I was to finally see them live.  The last Phish show I saw was a decade ago, way too long but what is also making seeing them at Bonnaroo that much more special for me.

Revisited: Furthur 10 4 11 Las Vegas Set List & Images

5 Oct

Any chance to see Bob Weir and Phil Lesh is a special treat and with Furthur rolling into Las Vegas, I was excited like a kid in a candy store.  However the evening didn’t start off nearly as planned as it took no joke, 50 minutes to get into The Joint as the ticket/security line was not moving.  After missing the first three songs (which included “China Cat Sunflower“and “Maggie’s Farm”) of set one, I made it inside.  As expected, a festive crowd on hand and it was all song and dance for the next three hours.  Highlights of the first set for me had to have been hearing “Welcome to the Dance” for the first time live and “Like A Rolling Stone” and “Casey Jones” back-to-back.  Second set, easily “Viola Lee Blues”>”Midnight Hour”>”Viola Lee Blues”>”Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?”>”Viola Lee Blues” and a little later in the set “Scarlet Begonias”>”Fire On The Mountain” which was just icing on the cake for a great evening.  I just hope I don’t have to wait another year to see the guys again.

Here is the official set list as well as fantastic images from good friend, Erik Kabik of Erik Kabik Photography.


 

TONIGHT: Furthur at The Joint

4 Oct

Awww yeah, looking forward to an exciting night ahead as Furthur rolls into town for what will be a fun filled evening of music at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel. After jamming Red Rocks in Colorado for three nights last week, we shall soon see what the fellas have up their sleeves for tonight’s shindig. It has been a little over a year since Furthur last graced the stage at The Joint and if it’s anything like that show, tonight should be another special one.  Curtain goes up at 8 p.m.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 4 Days – Artist of the Day: String Cheese Incident

5 Jun

In what has become a rarity so to speak in recent years, getting to see a String Cheese Incident show is something to savor.  With each member having a side project, catching a show is no easy feat anymore and the fact that they are playing Bonnaroo next week is something very special that everyone attending should look forward to.  One of the bands on the original billing for the inaugural Bonnaroo, this late night set will be one of the top five shows to catch.  To this day, a three night run at the Backyard in Austin to see String Cheese Incident is one of the best and most memorable concert experiences I have had.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 8 Days – Artist of the Day: Lil Wayne

1 Jun

I don’t think I’d purchase a ticket to his concert but the simple fact that he’s performing at a festival, yeah I’ll check out Lil Wayne.  I’m actually getting excited to see his late night set because I’m sure he’ll put on one heck of a performance, he has a grip of songs that I think everyone knows and more than anything, he’s part of the Cash Money family and was part of the Hot Boys.  I also think since it’s the grand stage of Bonnaroo, Wayne has some surprises in store, maybe Drake?  Wayne did show up at Drake’s gig in Vegas over MDW in Vegas…..
