Colin Meloy “We Both Go Down Together”

I know this is an old song but I had never heard this amazing acoustic version until just the other day so I figured I would share it. A song so beautiful that it makes me miss some of the loves of my life.  FYI Colin Meloy(The Decemberists) has the same birthday as my father(October 5).

Tall Heights- “I Don’t Know, I Don’t Know”

Tall Heights will be releasing a 5 song EP October 2, The Running of the Bulls. From the sounds of “I Don’t Know, I Don’t Know”, the first one released today, the project should be harmoniously bright, as Tim Harrington and Paul Wright, feed off of each other’s energy and produce this genuine sound. If you haven’t heard them before, make sure to watch this video of their small live performance… you’re going to love it!

See You at Hangtown Halloween 2012, Oct. 26-28

After attending this year’s High Sierra Music Festival, I had met some folks (long time festival goers), who turned me on to what they referred to as “The best music festival of the year”, Hangtown Halloween. So you can imagine with little over a month away, and after just returning from Burning Man, I am overly excited to experience a weekend full of spectacular live music, dancing, and good people. This year Railroad Earth will be hosting the festival, while giving three performances throughout the weekend.
Besides looking forward to the entire festival blowing my mind, I can’t wait for a particular highlight, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and their tribute to the Beastie Boys… this should be quite the show!Tickets are still available, so grab them while you can (link below), check out the full lineup for 2012 and catch the video footage from last year’s Hangtown Halloween below. So grab a few costumes, your tent, and I’ll see you there!
