Another photo today from last weekend’s Jefferson State Music Festival in Provolt, Oregon (near Grants Pass).

Floater @ Jefferson State Music Festival and Hemp Expo 2013

Friday was the first day of the annual, three-day music and hemp festival outside of Grants Pass. Floater was the headliner. Last night the headliner was Curtis Salgado, and for the final night (tonight), Les Claypool (Primus) will have the honors.

I wasn’t planning on taking any photos, but a friend came up to me during 100 Watt Mind (who were outstanding opening for Floater) and said that I could go backstage and in front of the barrier if I wanted so I went back to the car for the camera before Floater went on.

Last night Floater played at the McDonald Theatre in Eugene, but today’s photo is from the prior Friday night show a little farther south down I-5.

I have mentioned before how bad the lighting can be at the Historic Rogue Theatre in Grants Pass. I wasn’t even going to take photos at last night’s Floater show if the lighting was no different. However, a Eugene company was hired by Floater to liven things up a bit, and they did a fantastic job. More photos soon…

I headed over the Green Springs on Highway 66 last night with my son and his friend to see Floater perform at Oregon Tech (OIT) in Klamath Falls. I have never really been to Klamath Falls before even though it less than two hours from Ashland. I have been through it a few times, but the last time was probably five years ago. So this was my first time on the OIT campus. Floater basically played at the end of the hallway in the student union building, not your typical concert venue.

The stage was only a foot off the ground (if that), there were no spot lights, and strong sunlight was coming in through the blinds behind the band for the first few songs so conditions and lighting were really poor for photography or for just seeing the band (as you’ll especially note in the video at the end).

The crowd was enthusiastic and appreciative. That’s my son, Ryan, in the middle there (with all of the hair) trying to get a mosh pit going. I’m proud to say he succeeded.

I’ll process a few more photos of Floater from last night and post them tomorrow.

Floater Friday

Floater @ Rogue Theatre - Grants Pass

This Friday (June 1, 2012), Floater is returning to Southern Oregon for a show in Klamath Falls on the OIT campus. I’m hoping to head on over the Cascades and catch the gig. Hopefully, the lighting will be better than it is at their usual location of the Rogue Theatre. When will Floater come to Ashland again? It has been about a decade since their last performance in Ashland.

Slow Children (band from Oregon)

Slow Children at the Rogue Theatre

Slow Children, a band from Brookings (I think), opened for Floater. They sounded pretty good, sometimes sounding a lot like Floater in fact. Turns out there are numerous bands with this same name. They probably should have found a name that hasn’t already been taken. Anyway, they came out for Floater’s encore to play Helter Skelter as a six piece band. Check it out…
