All the songs were taken either from the bands websites or their MySpace pages and one ripped from a YouTube video. If any of the bands have a problem, please let me know and I'll remove the podcasts.

I've finally found a cool free media server online after the one we were using bit the dust. We've had a couple questions about where we hosted our downloads and now the answer is MediaMax.
On to the music... these are recordings that I made at the Forecastle Festival of the Wax Fang and the Pennies sets. I also got a snippit of De La Soul that had "Me Myself and I" (the only song I really remember from my childhood) that I'll post later if anyone wants it. Enjoy!

Over the past six years, the Peak Summit Groove and Dance Festivals have continually grown--artistically, conceptually, and in popularity. Each festival has produced record attendance and sales highs for the venues involved, routinely garnering capacity crowds in the thousands. This year presents the next logical phase in that growth, expanding to a 3-day, outdoor, camping, family friendly event, boasting 39 of our region’s favorite bands, 3 popular DJ’s, 5 talented artists, 3 interpretive dance troupes, and a plethora of activities for festival-lovers of all ages. Indoors and outdoors there are a total of three stages on Friday and Saturday, and one stage on Sunday. Each will be packed with popular music…reggae, rock, bluegrass, blues, funk, jazz, and much more. A complete lineup can be found on www.PeakSummit.com.
The annual festival’s past format has focused on using multiple, closely placed venues in Louisville’s bar districts, creating a mini-Bonnaroo atmosphere, but with two glaring exceptions—the lack of outdoor-camping and, and few (if any) family-friendly elements. This problem has been solved (!), thanks to a little-known venue that is only a 10-minute drive outside of

Hello all! Sorry for the delay in posting some pictures of the Forecastle Fest this past weekend. I have been waiting to do one big post including the sets I recorded from Wax Fang and The Pennies as well as a 15 minute segment of De La Souls show including "Me, Myself and I" and some banter about the Idea festival vs the Forecastle festival.
We're having a few difficulties getting the audio files hosted but they will be added shortly. For now, enjoy some of the pictures I shot on Friday and Saturday.
Many thanks to JK and the entire staff for putting on the festival and having us attend the shows.

Be sure to get there early. I am sure it will be packed inside Ear-X-Tacy.
Cabin will be playing the Jazz Factory late Saturday night. Tix are 6 bux and the doors open at 10:30.
A very cool video/photo viewer has been posted to the Forecastle website.
Also, it looks like The Forecastle will be extending to 3 days in 2008.
Wilco will be playing Louisville's Slugger Field on September 21st. According to Ticketmaster the $43 Dollar Field tickets have all sold out. They are selling on broker sites for much more ($50-$200).
You can still pick up a grandstand ticket for $33 bux plus $6.35 for convenience charge. Oh, and get this Ticketmaster will even let you print out your ticket to save money on shipping. Except they charge you for it! Thats right it will cost you $1.75 to print out your own ticket on your own paper using your own ink. Thanks TICKETMASTER!!!! Maybe while your ticket is printing you can watch some Wilco Volkswagen commercials on YouTube.
