Do LaB Founders Give Hints to Upcoming Festival


For those of you still riding the monumental waves created at this year’s Lightning in a Bottle festival in Silverado Canyon over Memorial Day, there’s some great news on the horizon. The Do LaB hinted towards it’s newest project festival, Rise and Shine (tw, fb) on the back of its printed guide and on the way out of the festival grounds.

Information is coming in bits and pieces and I wanted to gather some of that information here for anyone like me who is anxiously anticipating (or wanting to get involved) in this groundbreaking opportunity.

That Ol’ Man Robeson


I can’t help thinking about Paul Robeson while I try to sleep.

Born in 1898, the literal Son of a Preacher Man, Paul Robeson earned a four-year scholarship to Rutgers. Recognized as Phi Beta Kappa, he was also valedictorian of his class at Rutgers while simultaneously earning 15 letters in track, baseball, basketball, and football. As if this wasn’t enough, Robeson was also an *All-American* footballer in his college years.
