Is the Festival Scene Becoming Over Saturated?

Posted in Music News, News with tags , , , , , , , on Thursday, July 19, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

Remember when going to a festival used to be something to boast about? When you used to have to travel out of your way to get to the destination of choice and that added to the experience in a good or a bad way? Today, you just have to wait for the next festival to, literally, pop-up in your backyard. When do we make the realization that there are too many music festivals and it just is not as unique anymore? Now, everyone including your mother will be going to a musical festival this year. Believe me, most people’s mothers wouldn’t make this scene as fun but it could add to that uniqueness.

I am not complaining about this recent trend as I will be attending the inaugural Summer Set Music and Camping Festival in late August. I will just say I am evoking my right to voice my opinion on this matter. Continue reading

To All of You Lucky Enough To Be Attending Coachella…

Posted in Album Update, News with tags , , on Monday, January 16, 2012 by Tim Althaus

You better not miss the Flying Lotus show. It turns out, he will be debuting his new album for the fans during his live set at Coachella. I am truly envious of anyone that gets to experience this opportunity. Cosmogramma was one of my favorite records of 2010, and I can assure you that FlyLo’s new album is going to be spectacular; everything that this guy puts out seems to be synonymous for incredible. If you were lucky enough to get tickets, you really shouldn’t pass up an opportunity for a first listen to one of the best albums of 2012.

Coachella: SOLD OUT!

Posted in Music News, News with tags , , on Saturday, January 14, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

Coachella, the 3 day music festival in Indio, California, sold all of the 3 day passes, to both weekends, in just a few hours yesterday. This will leave festival goers that wanted to attend syphoning through Craigslist ads, online ticket brokers and eBay to try and purchase passes at an escalated price. With the addition of a second weekend this year you would have thought it would have been easier to obtain passes to this festival so this poses the question: Why not add a 3rd weekend or a 4th?

Here is the line up if you haven’t already checked it out:

THE PAVEMENT REUNION IS OFFICIAL!

YES! My dreams have come true. What many would say is arguably the greatest band of the 90’s, Pavement, is getting back together for an official reunion. Numerous reports from Pitchfork & The Brooklyn Vegan have confirmed rumors that Pavement will be reuniting in 2010. According to what I’ve read, Pavement will be reuniting for Central Park SummerStage on September 21st, 2010. There is also talks of Pavement playing Coachella, ATP & maybe even a full length tour.

I can assure you I will be scrapping like hell to get some tickets to First Avenue in MPLS if these guys come through. I’ve been a huge Pavement fan for the last five or six years since I found out about them. Everything that these guys did was genius, and their music will always be timeless. Pavement is easily one of my favorite bands in Rock & Roll history.

Now it’s time for some Pavement Classics to celebrate:
