Radio 92.9 EarthFest! May 18, 2013

It's that time of year again!  The fine folks at Radio 92.9 are hosting their annual EarthFest, presented by Whole Foods!

If you have never been to EarthFest, here's a quick rundown of what's goin' on:

Vertical Horizon, Cracker, Fastball, Gentlemen Hall, Camper Van Beethoven, and a local band yet to be determined will make your ears happy all afternoon.

There are all sorts of sponsors and free stuff to check out during the day!  Yep, you read that correctly.  Free.  Kinda goes along with the free concert!  Who doesn't like something that's free?  I guess that baby in the Jimmy Fallon credit card commercial... but check out some of these awesome sponsors!

Since it's EarthFest, we're trying to be kind to Mother Earth!  If you can... 

Go HERE for all things EarthFest.  Can't wait to see you there!  Who are YOU excited to see?  I am most excited for Vertical Horizon -  I've been a big fan since '98-'99.  Also, Gentlemen Hall is from the area, and I am looking forward to seeing them for the first time!  

What are you waiting for?  Get some friends together and come on down to the Hatch Shell on the 18th.  See you there!

#WhatchaListeningTo Wednesday - 5/1/13

Yep, still off my usual schedule!  Oops.  

Did you pick up anything on Record Store Day?  I'm going to finally get to posting what I picked up soon, I promise.  

Here's what I'm listening to this week:

  • Mayer Hawthorne feat. Rizzle Kicks - The Walk (explicit) - This version isn't for the kiddies. This one, featuring the English hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks, is so much fun!  I'd love for these guys to collaborate with MH again.
  • Matt Nathanson - Mission Bells - The beat gets me instantly... 
  • Eric Clapton - Gotta Get Over - This makes me want to grab a guitar and jam along... even if I don't play the guitar.
  • Stars - This Charming Man (The Smiths cover) - I am a big Stars fan, but hadn't heard this cover until RadioBDC  used it as one of their nightly "Mandatory Morrissey" songs. You can hear the original here
  • Jamie N. Commons - Rumble and Sway - The River 92.5 has been playing this song, and I love it - definitely wanting to check out his other music.

So, #WhatchaListeningTo?
