The 2015 Three Rivers Arts Fest is now only a month away, and I'm super excited that I'll be in Pittsburgh for part of it to catch some of the great music. Here's who I'm most looking forward to seeing:
Hurray for the Riff Raff (right): I love, love, love this band! I published a feature on them on AXS last summer. They had one of last year's best albums with their folky debut and they perform on June 9.
Benjamin Booker: This guy opened for Jack White last year and was every bit as loud and raucous and intense as the headliner. He's one of rock music's fastest-rising guitarists. Don't miss the boat - check out his Arts Fest performance on June 14.
Neko Case: See Neko on June 13 to check out her solo performance, which will hopefully include a lot of great tracks from last year's acclaimed album The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You.
As for me personally, I'm still hanging out in Chicago, and this summer might be my most exciting concert lineup yet. I've already secured tickets to see U2, Billy Joel, and the Rolling Stones! Also on the slate are a Weird Al concert and a free Weezer gig in the park. Good times.
I'm still adding websites to my online empire. Right now we're at about a dozen sites, including a brand new one focusing on pet toys called Doggie Fetch. I still have my Chicago Camping resource, plus my Chicago freelance writer site and my yoga products site, which just added a page on the best yoga blocks.
I hope to see you at the 2015 Arts Fest!
