Trey Anastasio brought his classic TAB trio to Charlottesville, Virginia to play the Sprint Pavilion last night. Joining Trey on stage was his usual lineup of Russ Lawton and Tony Markellis, but this show was marked as a special one and a Return of the Milkman as Ray Paczkowski was welcomed back to the stage as part of the...
As trusty as an old friend and as consistently quality as any rock band over the last twenty years, Dr. Dog returned to the DMV area for a special Friday night at the Wolf Trap, a bucolic, escapist retreat about 30 minutes from DC. Northern Virginia looked more like the Pacific Northwest on this foggy, cool and damp Friday...
PHOTOS BY SEAN O'BRIEN The last couple of years have been particularly kind to Sylvan Esso, as the dance pop duo continues ascending the venue ranks in each market they frequent. From the bar-sized Gasa Gasa in 2014, to Tipitina's last year and a sold-out-way-advance Civic on Friday night, the Durham, NC pair arrived to the Crescent City on a...
Widespread Panic wrapped up their annual run at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday, extending their record at the famous venue with their 54th sold out show. In keeping with tradition, the Sunday festivities started earlier, although this year's edition was pushed back to a 5pm start time, a couple of hours later than the usual kickoff at 3pm. ...
After a shaky opening frame on night one of two at the Phish run in Alpharetta, the rest of the weekend at the mid-sized shed in the Atlanta suburbs was golden and Saturday's show, on the whole, certainly ranks high for the band in 2016. Wesley Hodges has photos from night one of yet another massively successful Georgia run...
This year's 15th Annual Bonnaroo was marked by hot weather, (mostly) sunny skies and considerably smaller attendance numbers than in years past, making 2016's edition a comparably intimate affair for those who made the trip. Perhaps it was the absence of a 'white whale' mega-booking (See Paul McCartney in 2013, Radiohead in 2006 and 2012, Jay-Z in 2010, etc.)...
In festival years, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is entering old age (unvetted stat: 99% of festivals don't make it past their third birthday) and fifteen looks good on the American institution founded way back '02 in the beautiful rolling hills of Middle Tennessee. The 700 acre farm that plays host to the annual four-day event reached ‘hallowed...
Wednesday's Deerhunter show at the downtown Civic Theatre was announced a mere three weeks ago, and, during most of Bitchin' Bajas opening set, it looked like it could've been criminally undersold (for a band of Deerhunter's stature...and quality). By the time Deerhunter hit the stage, the floor and second balcony had mostly filled out and the doo-wop-meets-overdrive lead title...
Now in it's seventh year of operation, NRMAL serves as a Mexican feeder fest to Austin's SXSW. Given it's proximity and annual timing, NRMAL is able to attract bands from all over the globe south of the border prior to heading to Texas. While there were some parallels to a small American city festival - the cuisine, budget-friendly ticket...
