Brotherly Love Productions is at it AGAIN! This time, it’s PURPLE HATTERS BALL, taking place from May 10-12th in Live Oak, Florida. You may remember the location from the epic rage-a-thon that was AURA Music and Arts Festival a few weeks back. Rest assured, this one will be just as off the chain!
Lettuce, The New Mastersounds, Quantic, The Malah, Dubconscious, and many more are slated to perform. Tickets are on sale right HERE and they are about as inexpensive as it gets for such a crazy lineup!
*** This was a live interview with Shwizz during Catskill Chill 2012, completed while they were setting up for a late night open cabin jam. Great bunch of guys in it for the right reason. It’s a quick one, so give them a moment of your time. You may just find yourself a new favorite act!***
Camp Minglewood in Hancock, NY was the spot to be at from September 7-9, as tons of acts, fans, and hoola hoop enthusiasts from all over descended upon the humble, quiet town to celebrate this year’s installment The Catskill Chill festival. I’ll admit Destiny, both my own and my lovely contact at Brotherly Love Productions, crept up on me unaware, because I had never even heard of the Chill beforehand. But that was a mistake of my own doing, because the 3-day event is definitely something I will attend next year, crazy weather and all. The sold out show brought in crowds from miles around all anxiously awaiting a weekend of hip jams, bright lights, and a super friendly atmosphere.
Talk about a band that has its name come up everywhere lately! Dopapod do not appear to be holding anything back in recent months, and their tenacity and dedication appears to be paying off very well. The 4-piece group has logged many miles and performed at some of the best festivals the US has to offer, including Bonnaroo, Burning Man, Camp Bisco, and many, many more. It only makes sense that that’d also be one of the highlights of this year’s Catskill Chill fest, taking place from September 7-9 in Hancock, NY. Check out the insane lineup for that below! And not a group to slow down (ever), if you can’t make the Chill this year, they’ll also be coming to Ithaca, NY on December 1st, courtesy of their bad selves and Dan Smalls Presents!
Brooklyn, NY’s The Pimps of Joytime have been making some good strides in the music world over the past few years. Featuring a collection of fine musicians and a healthy dose of musical variety in their sound, the group is determined to bring their infectious beat and melody to crowds looking for a good time. That being said, it was great to check them out when they opened for Lettuce on June 7th in Syracuse, NY.
