The Hop Jam – Brought to You by Hanson


And in today’s Hanson news, it seems that my three favorite brothers are taking their love for craft beer and music and combining it into a FESTIVAL.  And yes, it’s called The Hop Jam.

I know, you’re wondering if I’m okay.  Yes, I did nearly pass out when I first read about this, but I have no recovered and am fanning myself profusely while I drift away to a day dream filled with three-way harmonies and a tall glass of MmmHops IPA (yes, you knowitall, it IS a real thing.)

The festival will take place in Tusla, OK – and currently only has Hanson and Robert Randolph and the Family Band listed as performers (which isn’t a bad start if you ask me), bur promises to feature contest winners from around the state.

So for those of you looking for a breath of fresh, new, lucious-locked air in the festival world – you can stop looking; Hop Jam is here.


Behold, the most diverse festival lineup ever…


In case you hadn’t seen already, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival released their lineup announcement video today, and it might quite possibly be the most inclusive lineup I have ever seen.  Ranging from Phish to Public Enemy, Solange to Foster the People, Trey Songz to Jason Isbell, Arcade Fire to Avett Brothers, Eric Clapton to Christina Aguilera (seriously).  Not to mention the smattering of traditional NOLA jazz and gospel acts.   I can’t decide if this is the most amazing strategy ever since people have already been going to Jazzfest for years regardless of the lineup, or if it’s going to result in the biggest clusterfuck in the history of music festivals.

Thinking about going?  I know…so am I.  Here’s a nifty to guide for everything you need to know if you’re planning a trip.

Best part of this announcement?  It’s put a (temporary I’m sure) damper on all the Coachella-philes.
