*Event Review* Foreverland | Sept. 19 – 21 | 2014

(Photo from Foreverland Facebook page) Days in Foreverland were filled with champagne and cold beers, wading in the lake, daytime naps in 90 degree weather, and an array of playful pirates and fancy fairies. Prehistoric-looking dragonflies zipped through the air all day, and fireflies danced with the lights and lasers at night. Foreverland may have...

It’s been a while since I’ve been to all trap show, but this one I had to attend to see the live act Keys N Krates. I’ve seen another group, STS9, do live trap before, but just for a track, so I was stoked to see what an entire set would sound like. Plus, I...

*Event Review* Shambhala Music Festival | Nelson, British Columbia| Canada |August 8 – 11

There exists a magical land full of friends to be made and unlimited music to discover hidden in the forests of British Columbia, Canada known as Shambhala.
