hville’s fall season of big ticket outdoor events just got even better with the addition of the SoundLand Festival (formerly Next Big hville), a re-branding and relocation of the burgeoning local showcase to the Lawn at the hville Riverfront touting an impressive lineup. Two LMB : (9/2012 LMB FEATURE) and the brand spankin’ new (8/2012 LMB FEATURE) lead the charge alongside rising stars of the City scene like and . The hville Riverfront went criminally underutilized after a number of short-lived (but awesome) Thursday night concert series (Dancin’ In ) never quite gained a permanent foothold. There’ll definitely be many, many more acts when this thing’s said and done, but off-the-bat, this looks like a killer way to spend a Saturday. Also, the last time played the hville Riverfront on 8/15/08, this happened – easily fitting on the memory shelf alongside other peak live music moments.

Furthermore, along with Live on the Green and With Your Friends Fest, this addition to the October slate is making me long for the ability to just pack it up and go couch-surfing in my old home place for the entire month of October. Oh to be 19 again…
