I was going to resurrect an old thread but all of the older ones pertaining to kind folk/deadheads/festie goers... are locked. One isn't but hasn't been posted on since last year. I figured I'd try a new one -so here we are!!


Looking to connect with others... never really though to make a tribe for this on MDC.

I know you're out there

Yay!!!! Howdy howdy!! Good to see you

No plans for any fall shows HOWEVER... there are 3 potentials in December!! I'd LOVE to be able to do all 3 but with the season and all... I dunno.

We did just recently discover an AMAZING jam band though. We've been listening to them for quite a bit now - The Brew. They're local-ish to us in New England and their popularity on this coast is growing pretty rapidly. Seriously? They're freaking incredible live. We've seen them twice now. Whoa.

But but but... we won't be here on this coast much longer and they aren't really touring on the west coast yet. Moving to Oregon!!!! Can't wait.

Anyone else planning shows or gone recently?

I haven't looked in to what's local yet-but hopefully I can get a show in before the new babe arrives. Yay for moving to ORegon-where will you be moving to? I am in Eugene :-)

I'm not dready, but I love to go to shows! Our favorite fest is coming up: Magnolia Fest in Live Oak,FL. I went last year, 5 days before giving birth. We're on the fence this year - anyone have any tips on festing with an infant?? We have a large tribe who will be there and probably help out, so we'll see.

Nice to see some other music-loving "family" mamas!

Hi. I just saw this.

I'm an East Coast Mama. My DH and I go to plenty of festivals, including Gathering of the Vibes, Greyfox Bluegrass Festival and moe.down. Since I'm due in December, we've taken it easy this year. We'll probably introduce the little one to some smaller festivals.

My DH and I also throw a music festival, called Stonehenge Music festival (www.stonehengemusic.org). DH has been doing it for 19 years - I started helping when we got together.

We both love the Grateful Dead, JGB, Bob Dylan, as well as more modern jam bands, like Umphrey's McGee, Gomez, and Yonder Mountain String Band. I love moe, but DH isn't too crazy about them.

I'm due in December with my first. I've been playing lots of great tunes for him and dancing a lot. I can't wait to introduce him to some live music next summer.

We also follow a more local band called Juggling Suns. Great band with a wonderful family of followers. Very GD type of family.

Coincidently EUGUENE! Although we really haven't a clue where yet though We're totally shooting from the hip, never even been there... we're just going for the ultimate life change adventure. DH is from the south, I've lived in New England most of my life but we really have nothing holding us in either place. We figure a change is in order to experience the most in life! Coast swap. It'll be a one time gig so I hope OR is what we think it is!! If so, I sort of feel like we're moving to Mecca

We're really looking forward to the fests out there... there are sooooooo many. What are your faves?

Hey music mamas!

I'm lucky enough to have an ex who takes my kids every other weekend, which gives me plenty of chances to go see music (although I've been realizing lately that I just can't afford it as much--boo!) I'm going to see Hot Buttered Rum in Boulder tomorrow, and then Greensky Bluegrass in 2 weeks at an AWESOME indoor/kinda outdoor venue in Lyons, CO. I saw Adam and Ben from Yonder there last month and it was AMAZING!! Railroad Earth is going to be in Boulder at the end of November, so I think I'm going to hit those shows up too. And then there's NYE--lots of great choices here in CO, but I don't know what I'll do yet.

Oh, and I took my kids on a roadtrip up to Hornings Hideout in OR for Northwest String Summit this summer and it was such a fabulous experience!! Super kid friendly...we had SO much fun!! I highly recommend it! There are rumors floating around that String Cheese Incident is going to be playing there again next summer, and if so, I'll be there for sure

mlh - Hi Do you ever vend at festivals? Dh and I are hoping to be able to do that once we get out west. Not full time, but we're crossing our fingers to be able to open a shop/homebase where we can also sell online and schlep to a few fests with the kids to share our goodies while soaking up the good music vibes We'll see how it goes.

I love love love all the beautiful clothes and hand made goodness of festivals and show lots!! You really find the most incredible things. Last fest, dh and I talked with this guy... maybe 25-30 ish years old... he draws. Oh BOY does he draw. He had about 10 different prints that he made numbered copies of that he sells. Once that batch is gone... he sells prints of his new stuff. This guy literally sitd for hours making one tiny scratch at a time with a pen. It's almost like pointalism. It takes him about 4 months to complete a piece. You seriously wouldn't believe what he creates. He obviously has a bit of "inspiration" iykwim His mind's inner workings are quite clear in the art.

Hey hey!!
I am a fellow kind mama. Living in the midwest. Live music lover.. Although, it has slowed down since the kiddos have come into our lives. This summer we took the boys out to 10,000 Lakes Festival with us.. It was a good time.. Great Panic shows! Planning to go to Railroad Earth in Chicago at the end of the month.. Missin' Cheese dearly. Hoping to head to Hornings next year.. If the good word is right. Glad to see there are other hip mamas on the site.. Look forward to chatting with ya'll.
Love and light~

I just saw them at a very small festival in upstate NY (Let It Roll), they were definitely one of the highlights of the weekend!

Cool! We sound like you guys. We brought the girls (5yo and 2yo) to moe.down this year... we went with friends that have two girls the same age, and it was really fun (albeit much more work with the kids).

We've missed grayfox for the last few years, which is a shame, I grew up right near there and I love the area. Hopefully next summer. Although we're also talking about going to Mountain Jam, and moe.down... so many festivals, so little time!!!

I don't vend at festivals. We have seriously thought about it and have come really close to signing up for one or two. The thing is, we want to go to festivals and have fun, not work! Maybe when the kids are a bit older we will do one or two a season...who knows! Good luck to you if you can swing it! What kinds of things are you thinking of selling?

So....dropped the kids off at Grandma's this weekend and hit Boulder for an amazing Hot Buttered Rum show. Poor Mans Whiskey opened for them and they are also amazing. This was my first time to see PMW and I was definitly impressed!

Poor Man's Whiskey was super fun, as was Butter! Here's a link to a bluegrass version PMW does of Darkside of the Moon: http://www.archive.org/details/pmw20...007-05-08.flac

PMW is also coming back to Denver the first weekend of November and I think I'm going to try to hit that up too. I like to think I can cut back on seeing music, but once I get back in the groove, it's REALLY hard to stop! I wasn't sure I would want to see Butter for New Year's, but after the shows this weekend, I'm going to have to make it happen

Hi chinaKat! We missed moe.down this year, but I heard good things. I'm in serious moe-withdrawal right now!

I have to say that Greyfox at it's new site, is not nearly as beautiful. It's a bit more convenient (no getting stuck at the bottom of the hill when it rains), but it lacks those amazing Greyfox sunsets. The music is still great.

We're going to keep it small this summer, since we'll have a little one in tow. He'll be 6 months for our first festival in June. I can't wait to bring him and expose him to great music and great people!

Nice! I hope Phish does another tour this summer so I can bring the LO with us. He was in my belly when I caught them in Camden. Killer show!

I'm hoping to jump on board the fall Phish tour... they're doing 4 shows we could potentially get to, 3 in NYC and one in Portland ME. The presale reservations end today and the regular ticket sales start next Friday Oct.23rd!! Uh, totally unemployed right now but there's always the law of attraction LOL!! We've already begged for Dead tickets for the holidays. Went to my moms and tipped her off that tickets are on sale NOW for the December shows near us

Nice! I'm 32 weeks preggers, or I would be totally buying tix to see them in Philly (we live about an hour away). I know I'll be too big and tired to enjoy myself. This summer, though, I'm totally there with the little one in tow.

I *just* got turned on to Railroad Earth by a friend, he was playing them when I was at his house the other day and I really liked them. Don't know why I never heard them before. Are they good live?

I LOVE Railroad Earth!! They are great live....they have a very polished and smooth sound. I feel like they are on a whole different level than many of the other bands I've been seeing lately. And their songwriting is just amazing!

On a different note, I've been listening to Yonder a lot today and now I'm rethinking my New Year's plans. Yonder is doing 3 nights in CO for New Year's and I think that would be a better choice than Butter....the truth of the matter is, I LOVE bluegrass and Butter is just not playing a whole lot of bluegrass these days. Bluegrass makes me happy

Bluegrass = happiness!!

So, I want to come here to share. I don't know any of you from other MDC areas but I know we have a common bond in this lifestyle and music love. Music is helping me get through this very difficult day.

Today is the one year mark of my son's birthday. His name is baby Micah Ray Milligan lll. He was born today one year ago at 5:40 am, 7 lbs 10 oz. I was 40 weeks and 4 days. He was born still. Perfect but sleeping. No reason has ever been determined. Today marks one year from the worst day of my life. My heart is breaking.

Music is a healing salve for me.

This morning my DP, Micah Jr ( who's his Father's only CHILD ) played The Brew live... I soaked in it. I cried. I laughed. Then he played touch of Grey. I think I'll just put that on repeat.

I'd love some suggestions from all of you beautiful musical mamas for songs to listen to today by ANYONE. Something that got you through, or something that makes you smile without fail. Anything from the heart.

I'd be lying if I didn't tell you all that my heart is suffering today. We'll be making a trip to the cemetary later... I'd like to make a list for the ipod so that we can play it all the way there, while we're there from the van and all the way home. Then in the house and when I go to bed. I want it on all day. It's going to be my portal to making it through this day. I just know it.
