Chucks is happy to be reporting back to you on its first ever visit to All Points West. Weather and an unfavorable Saturday lineup caused us to miss the first two days, but we were there for the third day. The early-afternoon rain let up just in time for the gates to open at about 4 but great weather didn’t make climbing in and out of the mud swamps any easier. We did our fair share of running from stage to stage, treading through the ubiquitous quicksand and altogether becoming so dirty that I am still washing the dirt from my skin. I’m completely serious; my feet are the shade of mud and I’ve taken two showers since Sunday.
See the photos and reviews below…


Two songs from musicians that I’ve never posted before. La Roux’s debut is coming in June. If you’re as addicted to Hype Machine as I am, you’ve probably already heard them.

The Hundred in the Hands are a duo from Brooklyn (duh!) and they’ve got this song and another for free on their website. According to their Myspace they’ve only been viewed 27,000 times. Not a lot for an awesomely encouraging debut of free tracks. “Dressed In Dresden” below, follow the link to “Undressed in Dresden.”


La Roux – Bulletproof

The Hundred in the Hands – Dressed In Dresden

There, now I think we can all make it through this Tuesday. Love.
