  • This country needs to stop averting its eyes to the gun issue and look at the real problem.

  • The adventure and overall experience of seeing a show at The Gorge, especially when traveling from Tahoe, takes one through a variety of engaging landscapes an although a show like Phish might be the initial draw, plan on a journey that will end up being far more that seeing your favorite band in a unique live setting. 

  • With summer in full-swing, we've come up with seven predictions of musicians that played at Saquatch, who should inevitably blow up, and will make an excellent addition to your summer playlist. 

  • Since 2006, the trifecta of digital musicians known as The Glitch Mob has gone from pioneering the beat scene in its hometown of LA to now selling out festival stages all over the world. Jeremy Jensen sat down with the mob to talk heavy sounds mixed with emotion, living the dream, and advice for young artists out there. 

  • Last weekend's Follies shows were bursting with inappropriate jokes, ragging on local businesses and community members. "A deliciously tasteless extravaganza" of Truckee talent, we've got the photos to prove it. Are you in our gallery?

  • Through the rainy weather and all, the debut of WinterWondergrass Festival in Tahoe was one for the books. With outstanding bluegrass preformances, a huge turn-out and lots of love for Tahoe. 

  • With more than 50 performers playing to crowds of 14,000, this year's SnowGlobe Music Festival in South Lake Tahoe showed that the electronic music scene knows how to party. And we've got the photos to prove it.

  • Sierra Valley Farms hosted its final event of the season, the Barn Dinner & Benefit, on Sept. 21. Featuring Executive Chefs Mark Estee, Mike Trombetta, and Michael Plapp, along with music from guitarist Johnny Vernazza, the event raised money to fund solar panels for the farm.

  • The '80s hair metal band stopped in town on July 25. The Crüe concert showed that some things — like the band's pyrotechnics, outfits and hairstyles, and ability to rock their famed songs — never change. And we've got the photos and set list to prove it.

  • Nearly 400 attended this year's Best of Tahoe Chefs event. Local chefs prepared a scrumptious meal for attendees, and then they were auctioned to raise funds for the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center. Who do you recognize in our gallery?
