We’ll be co-sponsoring a tent with model Michele Ouellet’s Lorenza Wine, where we’ll have wine tastings and some fun DIY projects like crystal bottle stoppers and decorating wine glasses. Read More

SXSW 2013 Photo Diary

I am back from Austin, but there is still music ringing in my ears.  People describe SXSW in many different ways, from wonderful and amazing to overwhelming, crowded, and chaotic.

Bonnaroo Vs. Firefly: Which Lineup Wins?

This week, two more of the summer’s biggest festivals announced their lineups and we’re having a hard time deciding which one we like more!  Bonnaroo has always been one of my favorite festivals – I’ve been several times since the beginning, but I always kind of felt like the lineups were never as good as the first year that I went.

Dr. Dog Talks New Music And Philly At Outside Lands

Another highlight for me at Outside Lands 2012 was on Saturday when I had the opportunity to talk with drummer Eric Slick of Dr. Dog before their Saturday evening show at the Panhandle Stage. I have been a big fan of them since their first album and they have grown tremendously since then to become one of the best bands to come out of Philly, while still maintaining their own unique identity and sound. In the opening moments of the interview we figured out that we actually grew up in the same neighborhood in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia – at the same time! They are currently touring in support of their latest album Be The Void, but I found out we don’t have much longer to wait before we get more new music from Dr. Dog! Read on for our chat with Eric at Outside Lands. Read More
