FESTIVAL RECAP: Blue Ridge Rock Fest – Blue Ridge Amphitheater – Danville, Virginia


Massive music festivals are commonplace now, but they were far and few between fifty years ago. They are hard to produce well, but can be great moments in time for fans and musical artists. For every Lollapalooza, Wacken, and Ozzfest, we have Altamont, Woodstock 1999, and Fyre Fest as well. No festival sets out to fail or do harm and hurt the trust of fans, but sometimes that happens. Blue Ridge Rock Fest, as it turns out, became a perfect storm of too many fans, too small a town, to support those fans. Purpose Driven events had put on severa

On The Road… with Theory Of A Deadman


tumblr_nq3ja52ucx1s33qhho1_1280

Long-running Canadian rockers Theory Of A Deadman are on the road on their “Summer Savages” tour. Although no strangers to big festivals and massive crowds, the band operates best in a club, where they can still see every face from the stage. This lets them connect their earnest, heartfelt jams in a more personal way that has seen their rabid fans cling to them in support. Although the tour bears the seal of their last full-length, 2014’s Savages (Roadrunner), the band is also out supporting their recent digital only acoustic EP Angel. Playing a career spanning set, the band has long known their secret sauce to their fans is mixing up their hits and a few ballads with their heavier fare. Captured here at The Livewire in Scottsdale Arizona, you can see the band is at their best when it’s just them, the stage and the people with few distractions. Thanks to Melina D Photography for these great shots!
