Mile High Music Festival

It's been too long since my last update, but that's been because I've been hecka busy with school and with band practice (we had a first show just this last Saturday, so we've been practicing a whole heck of a lot). I've been too a couple shows recently that I'll be talking about and hosting live sets of just as soon as I've had enough to time to edit the recordings, but for now I just wanted to take a second to recognize a local festival that's going to be happening real soon-like.

The Mile High Music Festival didn't look all that appealing at first, boasting headlining acts that, while talented to no end, didn't really spark my interest. After further investigation, however, I discovered that there were quite a few less ... O.A.R.-ish than I had thought there would be. There is honestly a pretty diverse line up, that has be pretty interested in check this lil' event out (They've even got a good smattering of talented local acts):
