However, in the interest of keeping it all together, here’s a few links to my coverage of this year’s Made In America festival in Philadelphia. Nobody can have a bad time when Beyonce is involved, but overall a festival on the Parkway doesn’t have the same majestic feel as a festival like Firefly, secluded and buried in the woods of Delaware. It’s like that thing when you take a vacation to the Poconos. Sure, it’s beautiful and relaxing, but it’s not exactly the sandy beaches of the Dominican.
Here’s everything you missed out on this year at Made In America.
See you next year on the Parkway, unless The Pope breaks it.
Before their show at Milkboy in Philadelphia, Chris and Lucky of The Griswolds talk about Philadelphia, Firefly Music Festival, and their favorite Vacation movie.
Today, the beautiful and revealing “Love & Mercy” opens in theaters. It’s the story of the legendary Brian Wilson, told in a fractured sense showing Brian in two important times in his life.
Simultaneously we see Brian during the height of his inspiration crafting the epic Pet Sounds album, as well as his life in the late eighties as he is in the grasp of a malicious adviser and alleged friend. Paul Dano and John Cusak bring Brian to life through two of his biggest struggles.
The man himself, Brian Wilson, was kind enough to take a few minutes to talk with me about the film last month.
It’s unnerving sitting across from one of the pillars of music as we know it. Also, I imagine it’s a similar feeling to be put in a hotel room to answer questions all day about a depiction of your life. Never the less, this is what it sounded like.
