Hangout Fest webcast, Late Night Pick: Kurt Vile, Huey Lewis is a cool dude

The Hangout Music Fest taking place on the beach in Alabama this weekend will be webcast live all weekend by MTV/VH1/Palladia. Most of the main acts will be streamed including Toots & the Maytals, Jim James, The Shins, Kings of Leon, The Roots, Black Crowes, Tom Petty, Shovels & Rope, Stevie Wonder, Trey Anastasio, moe, Galactic. Should be fun weekend viewing! Click HERE to get there.

The Late Night TV pick tonight is indie rock singer/guitarist out of Philly, Kurt Vile. He'll be on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight on CBS at 11:35 PM. Kurt's recent show in Portland was described as "jaw dropping". Kurt will be at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on July 19.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Huey Lewis reflects on the 30th anniversary of the "Sports" album and shows us, once again, that he is a pretty cool dude. Huey & The News' music from "Sports" and "Back to the Future" remind of summers during high school so he'll always be a guilty pleasure, though perhaps not so guilty any more. HERE is the interview.

Now off to Riverrock where I'll see you this weekend!
