Saturday is yet another strong day at Wakarusa 2011. The best thing about Waka is the amount of variety. You get to decide between reggae, electronica, bluegrass, rock, funk – almost any genre you want is here. Put that on top of a beautiful mountain with beautiful people – it’s pretty fantastic.

In this country, it seems festival season never truly ends. Thankfully. But summer is always ripe with great festivals, coast to coast. In this neck of the woods Wakarusa usually kicks things off – and this year looks crazy + awesome + delicious. Missing a day isn’t an option.

The headliners are solid, and I’m excited about discovering new artists and others getting some well-deserved recognition. And let’s all assume this year the sun will favor us with temperatures under 100. Read on for a detailed preview of Thursday. Three weeks out!

Wakarusa 2011 preview | Hugo

12:03 pm by

24 days til Wakarusa 2011 starts off summer. While Houstonians staying closer to home can look forward FreePress, I am getting excited about drifting around the fields of Mulberry Mountain. We’ll start up the full day previews soon, but for now, here is a video of Hugo’s version of “99 Problems”.

Hugo is a London-born, Thailand-raised rocker who missed lots of the musical evolution we’ve been through here in the states over the last 30 years. The debut album Old Tyme Religion comes out tomorrow, and the title-track has me hooked -their rock/blues side is delicious. Get an early start on Waka and be there at 4pm on Thursday to here Hugo rock it out.

Well now I know. On Monday night at House of Blues in Dallas Gogol Bordello graced the stage once again and the evening was everything I had expected. Read on for the rest of the review.
