By Chanelle May 3, 2016

If you don’t have plans to be at the People’s Blues Richmond Album Release Show at The Broadberry this Saturday, May 7th – You should probably change those plans. Not convinced?

People’s Blues of Richmond at Camp Barefoot 9

December 3, 2015

By Chanelle December 3, 2015

PBR “Nihilist Blues” at Camp Barefoot 9 PBR played on of the BEST sets I’d ever seen from them (though they may have outdone it at The National opening for Papadosio a few weeks ago!) Extra special bonus: Watch my buddy Travis stage dive feet-first into my face at the end! I was fine. I was up and raging the next bar; and by the end of the song I had gotten back both my hat and unbroken glasses. Well

Think Pink: Pink Moon 7 Review (Part 6) By Matthew J. Hunnicutt

October 12, 2015

By Chanelle October 12, 2015

The Shangri-La stage in all its glory. Photo by Lauren Kent for Radio Rubber Room. Sunday, Sept. 20: Sunday has arrived and caught me unprepared. I’m tired. I am physically, mentally, and emotionally drained, overwhelmed, and disoriented, and I would be lying if I said there wasn’t some part of me that was ready for the comforts of home. But I don’t want to go home right now. Right now, I want to live here on this mountain with these

Saturday, Sept 19: Three hours after serendipitously stumbling into a wayward hammock, I wake feeling a new man, the anticipation of Saturday rousing me, perhaps prematurely, from my slumber. I’m just in time to catch Gold Rush playing to a mostly-seated afternoon crowd. An acoustic string trio, this upbeat, optimistic romanticism is exactly what a body needs

Think Pink: Pink Moon 7 Review (Part 4) by Matthew J. Hunnicutt

October 9, 2015

By Chanelle October 9, 2015

Friday, Sept. 18: The chill of Thursday evening is long forgotten and the noonday sun beats down on a Pink-cheeked crowd cheering Spoon Fight at the Loco Pickle Stage (LPS). WV’s own Lawless Brown brings soul, funk and Rock-Reggae to the SLS. Little Bird soars over the OHS and Threesound brings the LPS crowd to their feet and keeps them there with soulful jams that blend sophisticated Jazz riffs with catchy Pop-Rock grooves. Meanwhile, Step Into The Flow yoga class,

Think Pink: Pink Moon 7 Review (Part 3) By Matthew J. Hunnicutt

October 8, 2015

By Chanelle October 8, 2015

Thursday, Sept. 15: Upon waking I decide to try to catch up with everyone I couldn’t find in the dark the previous night, and get a general lay of the land. As I crawl out of my sac I realize I don’t even have to leave camp to do this. From where I stand I can see all three stages, Shakedown Street, and even base camp all the way at the bottom of the hill. On closer inspection, I spot
