Countdown to Life is Beautiful 2014: Vintage Trouble

14 Oct

Years ago I was fortunate enough to not only see Vintage Trouble live a handful of times but also able to review one of their shows at Book & Stage for Vegas SEVEN. Fast forward a couple years and here I have booked Vintage Trouble for not one but two shows at Life is Beautiful 2014! The Ty Taylor led outfit will headline the Grills & Guitars kickoff party on Thursday, October 23 and then hit the Western Stage on Friday, October 24 at the festival! If you’ve never seen this band live you are missing out and if you have seen them live, you know these two shows are going to be electric! Hope to see you there!

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.

Five For Friday: Mariachi El Bronx, @LaborWines, #SNL, @DJVice, Happy Birthday Guadalupe!

14 Sep
  1. If you’re in Las Vegas, make sure you come by Book & Stage at the Cosmopolitan at 10:30 p.m. tonight, that’s where I’ll be to see Mariachi El Bronx.  They are amazing live and put on one of the best shows I’ve seen before.
  2. If you are in Las Vegas on Saturday, our friends at Rock n’ Roll Wine are hosting their 7th annual Wine Amplified event over at Mandalay Bay Beach and besides the great music lineup featuring Young The Giant and Vintage Trouble, my brother, will be pouring his wine, Labor Wines!
  3. If you didn’t see, this is genius by Saturday Night Live!  Great engagement idea.
  4. Super stoked and proud of my friend.  Click HERE for a little preview of VICE’s upcoming song, “Breathe.”
  5. In honor of Mexican Independence Day, everyone should listen to “Happy Birthday Guadalupe” by The Killers, Wild Light and Mariachi El Bronx!
