The Weeknd, Florence + The Machine, Cage the Elephant among chief Hangout Fest acts

Among the dozen or so festivals I covered for Grimy Goods in 2015, the beach-side Hangout Fest stood out as easily the most unique and definitely one of the most memorable of the bunch. When Beck’s fest-closing set ended last year, I was already making plans to come back in 2016. Headlining the 2016 edition […]

Remembering Scott Weiland: 1967-2015 — one of the greatest voices of our generation

Some will say that Scott Weiland lived many years beyond what was expected, given his hard and fast lifestyle as one of the biggest rock stars of the 1990s.
