Hookers and Blow - Tailgaters - Bolingbrook, Illinois - February 12th, 2016

I am amazed by the bands I see every year, they are at times some incredibly well known, well established acts and other times they are little known bands.  In 2015 I saw 157 different acts perform, and much like a band on a massive tour it becomes cumbersome remembering where I was on a particular date.  Sure its possible to remember a music festival or one of the iconic acts but at times it is nothing more than a simple name that sticks out never to be forgotten.

Elle Carpenter - Complex Simplicity

From time to time we all experience little "perks" in our lives, the extra cheese on a pizza without asking, being given a warning instead of a speeding ticket despite our guilt, even the thank you from a stranger for holding a door.  We all have those perks but in my little world usually those come along the lines of music.  Its a strange world music isn't it?  More often or not we hear faceless musicians playing our favorite songs in a heavy rotation on satellite and regular old radio but the perks are a little more rare in those terms.  Huh?
