Been pulling records for this year’s Mother Earth Sound SystemFull Moon Festival, a 48-hours 2-stage music festival. It looks like I’ll have an extended set DJ/performing as Multicast (up to 6 hours!!) on the Earth stage Saturday afternoon/evening. The line-up looks incredible, and the venue is a rural outdoor ranch in the mountains near Silverthorne. I will bring many styles and change the music up playing dub, reggae, electro, acid, ambient and some 140-dubstep; mainly a more chill out stage providing balance to the main pounding techno Moon stage.
I will also bring some gear and add in some original stuff here and there. I’m opening up for the Normal Ones so very excited about that; and perhaps we’ll do some experimentation for a while between sets!
It’s a couple days before the peak of the Geminids, one of my favorite meteorite showers I watch each year. Fortunately and unfortunately the supermoon is full and setting right after dawn each morning, so the sky and ground is filled with lunar light! I saw a couple of shooters but they were not as brilliant as usual due to the lunar light.
As I watched the sky, I realized the amount of nighttime light was probably how most folks in the suburbs see the sky on a good night! I’m reminded how spoiled I am to live where I do on the Palmer Divide at nearly 7000 feet above sea level, in the forest far away from the city!
