A critical smash on Broadway and in London, the two-time Tony Award® winning hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season.

Based on Green Day's GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album, AMERICAN IDIOT boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. The result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares "thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I've seen this year!"

Featuring the hits "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the blockbuster title track, AMERICAN IDIOT features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, direction by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch), music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), Tony Award® winning set design by Christine Jones and Tony Award® winning lighting design by Kevin Adams.  


Stone Linkin Pilots? jon | Mid Day

Stone Linkin Pilots?

Usually when a band gets a new lead singer it's bad news.  Just ask Alice In Chains how they've enjoyed the last ten years.  But in THIS case, I think it's an improvement.  Chester Bennington from Linkin Park has been hanging out with a de-heroined STP for the last few months, and now it looks like we're getting an album!  Or at least an EP.

The band says their first EP with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington will be called "High Rise," and is scheduled to hit stores on October 8th. The collection will feature five new tracks, including their previously released single "Out of Time" and another new song called "Tomorrow." But before fans get their hands on "High Rise," they can catch the Stone Temple Pilots on the road. The band kicks off a U.S. tour September 4th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. 


10 bucks says it's at a fair.

Codi Jordan Interview


Codi Jordan is raising money for his new album so lets help the guy out. Donate a little bit of money and support our music scene and Codi Jordan Band. Here is the link: http://www.indiegogo.com/Codisnextrecord. I think he needs around $3,000 more to finish the album so anything you can throw in will help. Listen to the interview featuring the song "The Little Red Dress." If you dig it throw a couple bucks in the bucket. Thanks. - Corey

Here is a video of Codi explaining more how this works:

Folks wearing BROKEN WRISTBANDS will not be admitted under any circumstance.

Motor homes are welcome, but the terrain is rough, so please drive slowly and carefully. There are NO hook-ups on site. Desert Rocks is an overnight camping festival in the middle of the desert. As such it is important for "YOU," the festival goers, to be prepared for desert camping.

The property owners have done their best to relocate these critters off of the property however to ensure your safety we ask that you please sleep in a tent, vehicle, or enclosable area. If you are sleeping in a tent please make sure that you keep your tent zipped up at all times to prevent a critter from sneaking in and snuggling up with you.

SAFETY The Desert is a harsh environment that includes high day temperatures, low night temperatures, Cactus, Cliffs, Loose Sharp Rocks, Critters (Snakes, Lizards, Insects, Coyote's, etc...), Storms, Flash Floods, etc... To avoid injury and to have a fun, safe, exciting festival experience we advise you to read these tips:

Stay Hydrated. Watch where you are stepping, sitting, and reaching, Desert Critters like to hide under rocks, in crevices, in bushes/broken branches, and burrows. Cactus can grow anywhere there is sand so watch your step. If you see yellow caution tape or orange safety fence there is likely a cliff or other hazard, please avoid these areas. Please keep a flashlight with you at night and be aware of your surroundings. Please do not throw rocks off cliffs as there may be people below, also if you are under a cliff be alert for falling rocks. Please no fires, the desert is very dry and gusty and fires are easily spread. Do not camp under cliffs or in Riverbeds as falling rocks and flash floods are very dangerous.

There will be a safety team, first aid tent, and staffed EMTs/medics onsite in case anyone is hurt. If you or someone you know is hurt please notify a safety team member and head to the first aid tent. For serious emergencies a life flight/ambulance will be called.

PARKING Parking will be $10 onsite for the general parking area. Car camp passes will allow you to park and car camp in the designated camping areas. Parking is also first come first serve, so get there early. There will be a long term parking for those who intend to stay for the duration of the festival, short term parking will be available for locals and those who are coming and going regularly. If you show up after dark plan on parking in the upper venue lot, even if you have a lower venue pass.

KIDS Children under 12 are free and family camping is available. Parents will be responsible for their children at all times during the festival. Each child will be required to wear an information wristband in case they are separated from their parents.
