Nova Tour Wows at 1STBANK Center

It’s a brisk night in late fall in Colorado and the wind is biting as people rush into the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO. But the cold isn’t keeping the crowds from coming tonight – with producer RL Grime headlining and Jai Wolf as the main supporting act, dance music fans would be crazy to miss out on this show due to the weather. The energy is already electric when Jai Wolf comes on to stage. I’ve seen the producer multiple times and can tell you with certainty, you neverRead More

Going To Sasquatch This Year?

Here in the North West sector of our country, the rain has let up (sort of), school’s out (for those who are students and don’t go to U of O or any other school on the god forsaken quarter system), and people are trading in pants and flannels for shorts and tanks (they’re not), which means… It’s time for Sasquatch, the Northwest’s premier annual music festival!   For those of you who are unfamiliar, Sasquatch is a three-day, outdoor music festival stationed on the cliffs of the Colombia River Gorge.Read More

Music Festival Survival Guide

Regardless of whether you’re hitting up one or ten music festivals this year, there’s still some amount of preparation required for each one.
