The Louisville-based Forecastle Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary this year with a three-day event featuring some of the best and most popular acts in rock, pop, funk and electronic music.
Chaotic riffs and thunderous drumming reigned supreme as the Rockstar Mayhem Festival descended upon Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.
The tenth annual Forecastle Festival took place July 13-15 at Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville, Kentucky.
Festival International de Louisiane is a springtime music festival in Downtown Lafayette, La. bringing talented artists from all over the world to a five-day free festival.
The description in the festival program looks intriguing: “Starting from an underground tavern in Athens, 1923, the band embarks on a journey across Time and Culture, riding the waves of music. Boundaries dissolve as Eastern melodies weave in and out of Western harmonies.”
At the end of the third night of Twangfest, I was surprised the building was still in one piece. Luckily for the Duck Room, the structure is made from the same hard substances that has kept so many St. Louis buildings standing for so many years -- brick, old stone and concrete.
The energy in the Duck Room Friday night was barely containable. The room nearly exploded due to some crowd surfing, off-stage singing, a double encore, and other shenanigans.
