ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day Three / Louisville, KY / July 19, 2015

Simply put, it was a day unfit for watching live music outdoors. With a heat index of 103 and no cloud cover to speak of, standing with the sun beating down on my head was not much fun. So in between my retreats to the air conditioned VIP tent, I did manage to catch some […]

ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day Two / Louisville, KY / July 18, 2015

What started out being a very trying day due to the excessive heat, turned out rather well with some fine musical performances as the sun went down.  An early afternoon storm threat also fortunately managed to miss us. Here’s my Day Two musical run down: A shady spot on a hill aside the WFPK Stage […]

ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day One / Louisville, KY / July 17, 2015

I was initially disappointed at the quality of this year’s lineup for the Forecastle Music Festival. None of the three headliners caught my fancy, and where in the past I had seen the likes of Bob Mould, Robert Plant and The Replacements, this year there were simply no bands specifically geared to my generation.  However, […]

ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day Three / Louisville, KY / July 20, 2014

Hot summer weather returned to Forecastle on its final day causing me  to take things slow and rest up for my major musical event of the decade—the return of The Replacements. My laid back afternoon consisted of checking out small samples of several artists in between taking in the air conditioned splendor of the VIP […]

ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day Two / Louisville, KY / July 19, 2014

It was a long and tiring but musically-satisfying second day at Forecastle. I got to see many great bands on a warmer but still pleasant day, including perhaps one of the best sets I have ever seen by anyone, anytime. My day started early with the tail end of an enjoyably fresh set from Hurray […]

ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day One / Louisville, KY / July 18, 2014

I am back in Louisville for my third consecutive year at the Forecastle Music Festival. A great lineup and unseasonably cool weather should make for a great weekend. As it turned out, I expected tonight to be the weakest night of the three. Nonetheless, my evening started and finished strong. Delayed by a construction-ridden downtown […]

ON THE ROAD: Forecastle Photo Journal—Day Three / Louisville, KY / July 14, 2013

All good things must come to an end including Forecastle. Thankfully, I got an early start and saw the day’s opening set from Nashville’s The Wild Feathers. These guys are definitely the up-and-coming alt-country rockers to watch out for. “The Ceiling” may so far be my favorite song of 2013. I got to hear a […]
