Top Ten Thursday: The Super Bowl of Music

music super bowl 2014

Apparently there has been a big stink about the NFL going after bars and restaurants for advertising “Super Bowl” parties, as well as anyone having “Super Bowl” specials at their respective businesses.  The NFL has a pigskin-sized object lodged so far up their ass, they insist on controlling any iteration of the phrase “Super Bowl”.  Well, screw you NFL.  LxL will not succumb to your tyrannical ways.  This is our Top Ten list: Super Bowl Edition.  This is not the most proper top ten list.  Instead, we decided to take the top 5 most notable bands from Denver and Seattle, and have them square off to see who achieves supremacy in the musical realm.  Denver’s list is so weak we even allowed for bands from the entire state of Colorado in an attempt to even the playing field.  So without further ado, here are the matchups and the winners.

CounterPoint Music Festival Review: Sex, Drugs, & EDM

Foreword

This is Austin writing, and I posted this review under my name to maintain anonymity of the author of this review.  I want to thank (redacted) for taking the time to write up CounterPoint Music Festival so thoroughly.  I will also say that the text messages exchanged between (redacted) and myself over the course of this weekend will forever bring a smile to my face.  Unfortunately, many of the readers of this site know my friend and know he went to this festival, so absolute transparency is not the best policy.  After (redacted) sparkling review, I hope to attend next year and get my weird on as well.  And as a disclaimer, the title of this article was provided by me.  Enjoy.

When you throw together 20,000+ people, 350 acres of beautiful landscape, and 70+ musical acts, the majority of which being electronic, you get a big bucket of weird.   This is what I learned last weekend at the first ever CounterPoint Festival outside of Atlanta, GA.  I know the typical post on here isn’t electronic music related so I’ll just try to describe the setting and hit the high points of each day.
