Currently racing across Europe on a marathon of Festivals.

Back over to Lowlands 2013 for another concert, finished just hours ago. This time it’s Imagine Dragons, who have been criss-crossing Europe and the U.S. all Summer and are clearly having a great year. The Las Vegas-based band have been getting serious attention ever since their debut album, Night Visions came out in September of last year.
They are scheduled to finish up the European leg of the tour in Leeds on the 25th of August. And then it’s back to the States for a bunch of dates before heading back over to Europe and then back to the U.S. before heading back to Europe and, from what I can tell, ending up the year in Barcelona. Who says touring is simple? But clearly, it’s what you have to do if you’re going to make any dent in your career.
For those of you getting ready to catch them on one of their upcoming U.S. dates, and want to hear what they’re up to – check out the concert from earlier today, recorded by the ever-present 3voor12/VPRO outlet in The Netherlands.
And no doubt, more will be posted as soon as it comes in – the festival is over tomorrow.
Kicking off Lowlands 2013

Another festival starting up this weekend. This one, the Lowlands Festival in The Netherlands started on Friday and goes until Sunday.
One of the opening acts for the first day was The Joy Formidable, who have been getting massive amounts of attention and good press this year and they’ve kicked off the festival in grand fashion.
Recorded by the venerable VPRO, I suspect this is an extended excerpt of a longer concert, but since it happened literally hours ago, this is all that’s available right now.
So if you don’t have the opportunity to head over to The Netherlands and dive into Lowlands 2013 this weekend, here’s the next best thing. So far, there are first-day concerts from Villagers, Staves, Deep Sea Arcade, Biffy Clyro and Alunageorge – and that’s just a sampling. It should be a happening affair this year and there’s two more days to go.
Stereophonics – One of the tried-and-true bands of Festival season.

Another blast of Pinkpop 2013 tonight. This time it’s festival veterans Stereophonics, recorded on June 16th (this past Sunday) by the venerable Netherlands Radio outlet VPRO and station 3voor12.
Stereophonics have been around for a while and have a big enough following to fill the 3FM stage easily. They are currently on a huge World Tour, making their way pretty much around the globe between now and September, where they are slated to play some U.S. dates.
Until then, here’s a preview of what you should be seeing when they get here.
Good band. Good concert. Good times.
