Mountain Oasis 2013 Superlatives

Written by on 2013/11/06 in Mountain Oasis with 0 Comments

Mountain Oasis 2013 offered a stunning array of acts and I entered the weekend determined to catch as many as possible.  The relatively close proximity of all of the venues, coupled with somewhat spotty attendance over the course of the weekend made this an easy goal to achieve.  As a result, I saw the fewest […]

Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit 2013 in Review

Written by on 2013/11/05 in Mountain Oasis with 0 Comments

Having some time to reflect on the first annual Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit I’d say it was a success.

  The bespectacled roadie looked over us with a gaze that seemed to penetrate deeply into our extra-dimensional selves. “You. Horse,” he declared, throwing a horse costume at my friend, Lee. “Elephant,” as Rupert caught the ridiculous elephant outfit out of the air. Finally I was bestowed with my alternate persona, and as I held […]

Do you remember Halloween Specials on family sitcoms when you were younger?  My favorite was always Growing Pains.  One time they had one where the urban legend of the girl ghost on the side of the road situation REALLY happened to Mike.  Oh man, that was the best.  If you were born after 1992, you […]

The Lovely Few’s new album The Geminids is looking for a big second half push. The Geminids album will close out The Lovely Few’s meteor series, with […]
