Get Excited For NFL Training Camp With These Cannabis Recommendations

The last third of the Summer is a hard pill to swallow for some, as they can smell months of rain and snow around the corner. But for football fans, this time year is like a holiday, because football is back baby! 22 teams reported to NFL training camp last Wednesday and the football spirit is palpable. Mock draft lobbies are filling up as we speak and fantasy football league commissioners are collecting league dues and tweaking league rules for the upcoming season.

There’s a lot of storylines going into the 2018 season. One of the larger storylines is obviously what will happen with the national anthem debate, but let’s stick to football. Be one the lookout for these storylines going into the preseason next week…

  • The Los Angeles Rams went on a spending spree during free agency. How will all these pieces fit together? There’s a lot of personality on the team, especially on the defensive side of the ball with the additions of Suh, Talib, and Peters.
  • Who will win the starting reciever job opposite Doug Baldwin in Seattle? Lockett is a great role player, but some needs to develop into that true number two guy. Brandon Marshall is the dark horse in that receiver room coming off a season-ending ankle injury.
  • Will the New England Patriots continue their AFC dominance in a weak division? They lost their number one receiver from last season and Tom Brady will be 41-years-old when the season begins.
  • How will the Cleveland Browns do with a completely revamped roster that is full of high profile rookies like Baker Mayfield and star-studded free agents like Jarvis Landry. For the first time in years, people are excited about Browns football.
  • Can John Gruden take the Raiders back to their former glory in his second stint as head coach?

The KushKrew’s 2018 Capitol Hill Block Party Recap

2018 Capitol Hill Block Party recap – It was three days of great music, food, and vibes. CHBP is one of the happiest festivals out there.

Day 1

Day one was highlighted by the announcement of Goldlink’s cancellation. Goldlink’s misfortune was a blessing in disguise for obsessive Seattle hip-hop fans like myself. Sammy “Huckleberry” Lachow himself was called in on short notice to fill the 6:30 PM main stage bill. In true Lachow fashion, he showed up exhausted and hung over from a night of partying and debauchery, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Lachow was joined on stage by Jake Crocker who held down the DJ decks, and Saint Claire who provided violin rifts and backup vocals.

Our Official 2018 Capitol Hill Block Party Festival Recap

After Lachow, I watched Sol do his thing on the main stage as well. Sol is one of the most consistent performers from Seattle. His sound is always smooth and beautiful, and his message is poignant and inspiring. The highlight of his performance was his homies that became his back up dancers during “If You Don’t Call.” They gave the set a silly boy band vibe that the crowd got a kick out of.

Sol and friends

Ending day 1 was Dillon Francis. Rocking a backward dad hat with a Gucci jacket, Francis threw down for 90 minutes of unadulterated EDM fun. As much flack as EDM DJs get today (much of it warranted), Francis is a real one. He created a special VIP edit just for his CHBP set and the crowd was thrilled.

Day 2

Day 2 was more low key for me, once I left the comfort of the Cloud Room lounge, I hung out at Vera Stage to catch Paris Alexia. Paris Alexia is a multi-talented musician that sings, raps and plays the keys. Paris Alexia ha a great sound and drips swag and unbridled confidence.

I caught Chet Porter at the Vera stage as well. Porter seemed very appreciative and grateful for his chance to perform at CHBP. He played an incredibly bubbly dance music set that had the whole crowd vibing with his innocent and happy sounds.

Day 3

As is common with festivals, the last day always takes the longest to fill up. Why? Well, people party too hard during the first two days and are slow-moving once Sunday arrives. Lucky for me, I don’t drink much (anymore), so I entered the festival early, feeling fresh, and felt like I had the entire place to myself.

The first set I attended was Ryan Caraveo. The Seattle spitter was greeted by a crowd filled with his hardcore fans. A set filled with lyrics covering topics about doing what you want and chasing your dreams; it was hard to feel like you couldn’t accomplish your wildest dreams after his set.whole crowd vibing with his innocent and happy sounds.

After I killed a couple drinks at the Comet Bar, I made my way to Neumos and saw a few acts that had me smiling and dancing along including DJ. Ross Grizzly and Katie Schecter.

Cashmere Cat brought his interesting sounds to the main stage. He drew a large crowd by the time his set was rolling and it was the first time the main stage filled up during day three.

Cashmere Cat 2

Two Feet’s set was defined by simplicity. Him, his guitar and his friend with a drum machine put on the best musical set I’ve seen all year. Deep emotional guitar rifts brought Two Feet to his knees as he melted the crowd with his music. He has a style of guitar playing that’s completely his own. He makes turns a common electric instrument into a powerful musical tool, used to deliver his emotions to the audience.

Two Feet felt right at home on stage and he played through his entire catalog of music in about 50-55 minutes. Two Feet is still so new to this level of musical exposure, he didn’t even have enough new music to cover a 60-minute set. Did he panic? Not one bit. Two Feet replayed his two best songs, “Fuck You” and “I feel Like I’m Drowning” and the crowd absolutely loved it. Two Feet is a born rock star, and I was honored to see such a talented artist in the early stages of his career. I can’t wait to see how his career blossoms.

Learn More About Bodhi High’s Budget Brand, Honey Tree Extracts

If you like taking dabs, you’ve probably heard of Bodhi High’s products. Did you know they have a budget brand called Honey Tree Extracts? Honey Tree Extracts are made by the same crew that runs Bodhi High’s extraction laboratory. That means you can count on the same quality from Bodhi High concentrates at an incredibly affordable price. The budget qualities like the darker color and simple consistencies come from starting material that doesn’t meet the Grade-A standards that go into Bodhi High extracts. Grade-B starting product doesn’t give you brilliant colors or consistencies, but it still has plenty of cannabinoids and terpenes for a well-rounded balance of flavor and effects.

Learn More About The Summer Meltdown Festival Before You Buy Your Tickets

The Summer Meltdown festival takes place in Darrington Washington. Darrington is small town tucked in the northwestern part of the state. Darrington is in a carved out section of two adjoining national forests, Mt. Baker – Snoqualmie, and Okanogan – Wenatchee. The festival takes place within the borders of the Darrington Blue Grass Music Park.

Washington is a bastion for music. People may not think of the Pacific Northwest as a popular music destination, but this entire state is constantly graced with musical tours, festivals, and shows from the most popular acts in the world. Artists love coming to our state for its beautiful amphitheaters like The Gorge, cozy concert houses like The Knitting Factory and Showbox Market. Washington crowds are no slouch either, filled with rambunxious hard working Pacific Northwesterners who love to let loose and party with their favorite bands. Some believe the music festival bubble is beginning to pop and recede with the death Gorge staple, Sasquatch Festival. While it’s sad to see Sasquatch go, nothing ever stays the same, and change brings about new adventures. The Summer Meltdown festival is one of Washington’s rising festivals and it’s poised to make a strong run in the coming years.

The Darrington Blue Grass Music Park is a secret of Washington. While it’s been hosting the Darrington Blue Grass Festival for the last thirteen years, it’s widely unknown to most festival goers, I just heard about it last year and I’ve been attending music festivals for 13 years, but the secret is up now. This music park is surrounded by mountains and forests and is close enough to the North Fork Stillaguamish River for campers to swim in. It’s been the home of Summer Meltdown since 2006.

Summer Meltdown’s lineup has steadily grown in notoriety. In the last few years, it draws acts such as Keys & Krates, Sol, Griz, Gramatik, Blue Scholars, and Sir Mix-A-Lot, but this year they’ve attracted one of their most stacked rosters to date that features the likes of Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Beats Antique and Dave B.

Bassnectar is a revered artist in the electronic music scene, loved by casual and hardcore fans alike, you’d have a hard time finding someone to say something bad about Lorin Ashton A.K.A Bassnectar. His music ranges from heavy electronic bass that makes you want to bang your head and smash the ground like a gorilla, but he also has tracks that make you feel like you’re floating through space and sound on an electric cloud.  Bassnectar will bring the melt for this year’s Summer Meltdown.

Staying with their roots, Summer Meltdown wouldn’t be complete without some bluegrass music. Greensky Bluegrass is bringing the country/rock twang. They’ve been defining their own sound within the bluegrass genre for the last 15 years and have made several appearances at Summer Meltdown. Their latest album, ‘Shouted, Written Down & Quoted’ is their sixth project. Greensky tours nationally, hitting 175 venues per year and sells out places like the Ryman Theater and Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Dave B is one of Seattle’s best and brightest. He’s Seattle City Arts Magazine Artist Of The Year, toured with Macklemore and was featured on Mack’s latest album ‘Gemini,’ Dave B is steadily making moves. It’s hard to decide if his singing or rapping is better, good thing he graces most of his tracks with both. He has a smooth hybrid sound reminds me of gospel, R&B, with a lyrical precision that I’ve come to love from Seattle MC’s. He’s a uniquely talented artist that Seattle is lucky to have. This is one set you don’t want to miss.

Five Alarm Funk is an all instrumental jam band hailing from Canada. This ska, rock, funk mix will have your feet moving. I don’t have much else to say other than these guys have a catchy nostalgic sound that old music heads are sure to love.

Big Gigantic is one of the most fun live performances you can see. This live-electronic duo is made up of a saxophonist and producer who are seen as pioneers of the genre.  Dominic Lalli and drummer, Jeremy Salken have a goal to unite the world through electronic music and community. It’s a bold goal, but if you’ve ever been to one of their shows, the energy created within the crowd is a tiny slice of a peaceful utopia, filled with funky sounds and shaking asses.

 

 Festival Workshops & Art Installations

Summer Meltdown is feeding your mind as well as your spirit. The weekend is filled with yoga, rhythm, and hooping workshops and art installations.
