With less than one week until Arise music festival, Colorado is gearing up for one of the state's most cherished and well put together events. Arise is entering into its fifth year in colorful Colorado, and the festival is known for bringing diverse music to the community and inspiring a better tomorrow through community efforts. As many of us already know, the best part about a music festival isn't the music, but the community it brings. Arise captures this essence better than any other festival we've ever been too, and they continue to improve on this year after year.
In life as we grow older it becomes harder and harder for us to find magic in the world around us. There aren’t many places we can go where we can say we feel something monumentally positive. These are the kind of places we can find our truest selves in. Places often full of love, music, community and nature. Places like Sonic Bloom.
The most beautiful things in life seem to occur naturally. Which is why there is no other feeling like listening to soulful melodies while exploring lush mountains. The best part is when that experience can be shared throughout a huge crowd of music and nature lovers alike.
Once again I walked into Colorado Springs small town venue, Rawkus, on July 15th not knowing what to expect. Once again I was seeing an artist I had never really heard much about before. Once again I was absolutely taken back by the performance I witnessed.

As many of us head bangers know there’s absolutely nothing better than whipping your hair around trying to break your necks to dubstep, which is exactly what the crowd was doing during Barely Alive’s set at Rawkus in Colorado Springs this past Saturday.
