  Describing Houston's Day For Night as a music festival just doesn't cut it. The idea behind the new festival is to showcase artists with a talent for highly visual performances all while exhibiting massive art installations by artists from all over the world.

Another year of  SXSW wrapped this weekend, showing locals and tourists why Austin is Live Music Capital of the World. From secret DJ sets to main venues packed to capacity, there was something for every pair of ears in the city. There was free food and booze as far the eye can see; celebrities scattered within the thousands of music fans throughout every crowd; bright visuals and loud sound that impressed all who saw and heard; late nights followed with booze-filled brunches and snacks from food trailers in between. And when the party goes on for 10 straight days, it's

SXSW 2014 March 15th Review

Saturday seemed to come impossibly fast, as SXSW comes to its ending weekend. Thousands of people roamed the streets looking for their favorite bands to see one last time before the return to normalcy hit them back into reality. While, some were bleary-eyed and almost thankful this week was almost over, many came with a renewed energy to end the week with a bang. Some even took it a little to far.  7981

SXSW 2014 March 14th Review

Friday at SXSW proved itself to be crazy. As more and more people showed up for the weekend the crowds grew even more. Lines spanned all around buildings and the hopes of getting into some shows proved almost impossible. Thankfully due to larger park shows there were still some places for people to see a great show.  7973

SXSW 2014 March 13th Review

SXSW 2014 is still in full swing and music has completely taken over. Walking anywhere in the downtown area of Austin you can hear music pouring from every direction. 6th street has become a complete roar of music as bands play in almost every other bar, making it easy to get lost in a trance of noise. 7961

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013-Day Three Review

As Sunday comes to and end so does Fun Fun Fun Fest for 2013. Lucky for everyone the weather was absolutely perfect, not too hot, not too cold, a nice cloudy day. The atmosphere seemed more laid back than the past two, people slowly getting tired but ready to go all out for the last day until next year. 6746

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013-Day Two Review

Day two of Fun Fun Fun Fest and we are still hanging in there. The long days and endless music options aren’t getting old and thankfully the weather has still been kind. Frank Smith, a band that happens to be local to Austin, were the first to perform on the orange stage today, and they did it perfectly. 6681

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013-Day One Review

Day one of Fun Fun Fun Fest proved to be a great beginning to what we hope will continue to be a great weekend. The weather was nice and cool, staying in the 60’s all day and dipping down into the 50’s at night, making for perfect festival weather, and the talent did not disappoint either. 6616

  The 2013 installment of the Treasure Island Music Festival showcased many up-and-coming artists alongside headliners Atoms for Peace and Beck.  As has been the case in previous years, the weather fluctuations dictated the crowd response.  Warmer temperatures marked the first day with enthusiastic crowds for Disclosure and Major Lazer.  However, as night began to fall, so did temperatures and the crowds started to dissipate.  So much so, that the audience for Atoms for Peace began to dwindle mid-set and the supergroup was left performing their encore to a few thousand people.  Thom Yorke commented on the weather throughout the set,

Day three of the first weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival was just as energetic as the first two days. Highlighted by headliners, Atoms of Peace and Lionel Richie, music fans got a strong lineup of younger bands MS MR, Grouplove, Foxygen and Tame Impala. Festival stalwarts, Phoenix, Franz Ferdinand and The National drew strong crowds, especially Phoenix, whose audience swelled early through the French band's set. The band also experienced a power outage, similar to what occurred with Muse on Friday. The outage occurred in the midst of a rousing revival of "Entertainment" towards the end of

The second day of the Austin City Limits Music Festival was highlighted by the diverse sounds and weather that had the crowd fanning themselves during the day and bundling up at night. Headliners, The Cure gave a solid performance as lead singer, Robert Smith was animated and vocally strong. Not one for a lot of stage banter, Smith and co. let the music speak for itself, performing twenty six songs to a crowd that had skewed older but was also filled with some of Kendrick Lamar's audience. Lamar, the only rapper at the festival, had performed before the goth-rock headliners to

Still covered in the dust and grime from the day before, fans converged on the second day of Riot Fest Denver like a swarm. Band after band delivered stellar performances, not to outdone by the lineup from Day 1. New Beat Fund, Kongos and Peelander-Z got the party started with some funky beats and rousing crowd participation. Denver boys Breathe Carolina really kicked up some dust with their electric set. Public Enemy always brings the riot, delivering a unforgettable performance. The rain clouds rolled in around 6pm right before Bad Religion was set to take the stage. In concern for crowd safety,

This is the first time Riot Fest has hit the Mile High City and from what we saw yesterday, we can only hope that Riot Fest will continue to find a 2nd home in Denver, Colorado. Crowds drifted in as things got off to a slow start on Day #1, which is a shame for anyone who missed the first few bands. Bosnian Rainbows and Touche Amore started off the day with a bang, both delivering show-stopping performances as the day had barely even started. The Dismemberment Plan and Minus the Bear kept the afternoon rolling as the crowds started pouring in
