Umphrey’s McGee with Dr. Dog and Delta Spirit at Red Rocks

Arriving at my first Red Rocks show of the summer always fills my soul with a sense of elation. Seeing the giant formations of Ship and Creation Rock cradling the most amazing amphitheater on the planet is something I’ll never grow tired of. Parking in Lower South can be a roll of the dice. It’s… Read more »

Carmel’s Scamp 2013 Overview

I could probably write a book about my 2013 Summer Camp experience.  There is a variety pack of blogs I have planned for the future and I can’t wait to share some of my favorite vendors, festy food, and artist interviews with my all my Scamp family. For now, I want to share a video… Read more »

Summer Camp Music Festival 2013 – Sunday

As my eyes adjusted to the light the distinct pitter patter of rain could be heard falling on my tent.

Summer Camp Music Festival 2013 – Saturday

After a brilliantly beautiful day a Summer Camp we woke up to overcast skies and a light drizzle. That sporadic rain would continue on and off throughout the day culminating with an absolute downpour during Umphrey’s first set. We’ll get to that.

They played several of my favorite songs such as “Big Blue ‘72”, “Devils Look Like Angels”, “Sure… Read more »

Sunday Mud-day

Sunday was EASILY the best day of music for me. Also, it was easily the worst day of weather. No way I was gonna let that affect my mood, though, and for many Scampers, it was the same. I was able to catch Umphrey’s day time show, and they just continue to get better every… Read more »

Mudshine

And just like that, we’re on to the last day of Summer Camp. Last night consisted of another marathon of music and good times while trekking through all the mud throughout the grounds. I saw Victor Wooten, a humbling experience, in the VIP lounge jamming with some special guests. After some dancing at Thievery Corporation,… Read more »

Rage. Rest. Repeat.

So through my first two days here at Summer Camp, I’ve come to realize the culture that exists here. Three Sisters Parks has become its own city, separate from the rest of Chillicothe, as well as the rest of society, where everyone here is here for the same reason – to celebrate life and enjoy the music… Read more »
