All Things Go Fall Classic

It was rainy. It was muddy. So much so that the Washington Nationals cancelled their playoff game a block away and one of the musical acts refused to take the stage when it was time for their performance. And yet, the show must go on. In this case, I’m talking about the All Things Go Fall Classic at Yards Park at the Capitol Riverfront, Washington, D.C., Oct. 8. This year’s show, which featured Empire of the Sun, Passion Pit, Sylvan […]

Browns do what Browns do, help get Redskins back on track

Considering how infrequently the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns play one another, it’s amazing how similar the two franchises are. For starters, both teams have struggled with constant turnover at football’s most important positions — head coach and quarterback — which ultimately leads to disfunction and turmoil. As the losing seasons have piled up over the last decade and a half, the Redskins and Browns have both become a punchline to the rest of the NFL. And then you’ve got […]

The headliners from Farm Aid 31

Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp back in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers. Add in Dave Matthews, who joined Farm Aid’s board of directors in 2001, and you’ve got four of the biggest names in music getting together once a year for a very worthy cause. Listening to Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds play […]

Alabama Shakes

The Alabama Shakes have been around a little while now, so even if you’re unable to name any of their songs, chances are you’ve at least heard of the band. Of course, winning a Grammy — which the band did back in 2009 — makes it easier to spread the word about a group that originally formed back when they were in high school in Athens, Alabama. The band, which currently consists of lead singer Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, […]

Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats

If I’m being completely honest, I have no clue why Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats aren’t a bigger deal. My wife and I absolutely love them and anyone who has ever seen them live walks away thoroughly impressed. Hell, even my five-year-old really enjoys belting out their tunes when we’re in the car. But for whatever reason, they haven’t quite risen to the level I feel like they should be at. Don’t get me wrong, they definitely have a passionate […]

Photos from Farm Aid 31

According to the official website, Farm Aid’s annual concert is an all-day music and food festival, featuring a unique lineup of artists and genres and family farm-identified, local and organic foods with its own homegrown concessions. Although Farm Aid has been around since 1985, I had never actually attended one before this year, which is ridiculous because I love live music and am always impressed by the festival’s lineup year after year. This year’s show was at Jiffy Lube Live […]

Redskins embarrassed again in primetime

Coming into the season opener, continuity has become the norm with the Washington Redskins, which hasn’t really ever been the case since Daniel Snyder bought the franchise. While it’s been a jarring adjustment for some, the roster is no longer in a state of constant turnover, the coaching staff hasn’t been radically redone and the foundation of a respectable franchise are evident. In short, the Redskins don’t really resemble the punching bag the rest of the NFL lovin’ world has […]
