When Pit Action Goes Awry

It’s the morning after the Acacia Strain show at Webster Hall and I’ve gotta admit- I have some battle scars from last night’s show. Yeesh! Normally most of us wouldn’t think anything of it, but something about last nights crowd seemed off, with the aggression breaking most of our unwritten rules about moshing. The show […]

Good Times at the Brooklyn Folk Fest

Took a little adventure down to Brooklyn Heights this weekend, hungry for relaxed banjo playing and bluegrass fiddle melodies. Upon my entering the church where the fest was being held, I came upon a small group of musicians playing a ridiculously fast Appalachian tune in the kitchen. Just like that I felt as if I […]
