It’s almost time for the 4th Suwannee Hulaween. The past three years Suwannee Hulaween has hosted some of the best music, scenery and good times many have experienced at a music festival. This year will no doubt be a grand time, with seven sets of The String Cheese Incident spread out over the three-day main event and a pre-party with EOTO on Thursday. Last year’s Hulaween attendance broke records at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, but this year, tickets are limited to only 20,000.

This will be the first time My Morning Jacket will play at the Music Park. After seeing and hearing their stellar set at Lockn Fest in August, (MMJ stole that festival) everyone is looking forward to their performance. Other notable bands include Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, Big Gigantic (feat. The Motet), The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Gramatik, Lettuce, Greensky Bluegrass, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Snarky Puppy, The Revivalists, and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe.

The art installations, live paintings and decorations that are scattered throughout the park seem to get better each year, the creativity is unsurpassed. Spirit Lake is a treat in itself with the spectacular light show that lasts all night long, casting patterns of color onto the tall cypress trees and the long tangles of dangling Spanish moss and the adult playground in a Spirit lake area with its own stage, fire dancers, fire statues, swing sets, moving lights, mazes, and mouths to sit in and pose with, landscape art and much more.

The costume theme is “Stringier Things”, which will celebrate vintage 1980s supernatural horror / pop culture, inspired by the Netflix TV Show “Stranger Things”. We can’t wait to see what kind of creatively kooky costumes are on display!

Pretty Lights, Bassnectar & Big Gigantic, 10/14/11

 

Pretty Lights, Bassnectar & Big Gigantic
Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park
Alpharetta, GA
October 14, 2011

 

The bass may have shaken the ground for miles on any side of the Atlanta metro-area last weekend when a few champions of the untz movement rolled into Encore Park’s Amphiheatre for a two-night stand in the suburban city. Yes, the city may never be the same after legions of sweaty and scantily clad bodies spread out into the night following the retina splitting displays, hyped up hoopla, and downright spectacular spectacle that the trio unleashed on an otherwise chilly night.

Let’s just hope the folks who attended had a sweater in the car.

Atlanta’s own Michael Podrid was on the scene to capture all of the pretty lights (pun intended) through his lens.

On the scene at Wakarusa Part 2: Big Gigantic and Zoogma (VIDEO)

img_9291.jpgIn this second and final On the Scene at Wakarusa piece, we go on the scene with Big Gigantic and Zoogma. Both relative newcomers to the electronic music scene, they  are taking it by storm and are doing it in a way that is unto themselves.

With Big Gigantic, former Motet member, Dominic Lalli brings, yes a saxophone, into the mix. And with Zoogma’s piercing guitar work and equally impressive knack for melody, both acts are proving that organic growth and instrumentation remains important and has not been entirely abandoned in a scene that is becoming increasingly dominated by laptops.

The very distinct acts are both playing with a fervency and hunger that is hard to dismiss, so we thought it would be appropriate to get their HD perspectives on things ranging from improvisation to exactly what the f**k Zoogma is.
