Made it back from the Tall Tree Music Festival. Festivals are a hot commodity….but I’ll tell ya, if you’re an urban type rocking this blog, you haven’t seen anything like Tall Tree.

Four days of rain, sun, ocean, mountains….bands and DJs. All up on the side of a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Getting there is just part of the adventure.

The festival is a pretty good balance of traditional rock bands and DJs. The afternoon is see-sawing back forth between EDM and bands. Then at night, DJs till dawn.

Somewhere in the mix you’re getting rained on and sloshing through the mud with a beer in your hand and green trees in your sights. Lots of high fives, lots of smiles. Quality people.

I was only up for a couple days of the festival before my carriage turned into a pumpkin and I had to go back to work.  During those precious 48 hours I saw some shit maaaaaan.

Loved Victoria’s Neon Steve.

I got excited when he dropped Sylvan Esso into his Friday morning set.

BESTiE from Vancouver were there (I missed their set)…but I did see WMNSTUDIES…. and here’s a remix WMNSTUDIES did of their song “Asleep On The Bus.”

Australia’s Pete Murray was new to me…and I think the few brave souls that were vertical on Friday afternoon, but apparently he’s kind of a big deal back in Koalaland.

The people that were into him, were REALLY into him.

Tall Tree was pretty magical and I am already excited to go back. I’ll just need to sort out some childcare because I’ll need my girl Coral with me.

Here is a pic of my man Razer (Acres of Lions) and me before things went sideways on Thursday.

Me and Razer

We birthed our party band, Stable Hands, at Tall Tree and I think we even hyped ourselves enough to get signed? At least a late night set at the Spirit Tree Tent.

Go with yourself.
