Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party is always a blast, and this year was no exception. We caught the Colorado stop of the tour at Red Rocks that featured Slumberjack, Valentino Khan, Cheat Codes, Alison Wonderland, Cashmere Cat, and of course, Major Lazer to close out the night. There was ups and downs, and we have our personal preferences (Alison Wonderland killed it) but overall Major Lazer reminded everyone whose show it really was, with a huge display of lights, LED screens, dancers, cannons, money throwing and other debauchery we’ve come to expect from Diplo and his crew. Check out the mayhem if you missed it, or catch the block party in your city. Images captured by Blake Jackson.
Project Pabst offers a unique experience, incorporating music, art, hands-on experiences, as well as food and beer at reasonable “non-festival” prices. Aside from great bands, festival goers will be entertained with the PBRcade (an old school arcade), PBR Vandalism which is an interactive art experience utilizing a van as a canvas, and PBR Wax, which is a mobile studio where people can record their own demo of music and take away the recording on a vinyl 45. Additionally, a local artist from each city will be highlighted on a limited edition Project Pabst 16 oz. can.

We’ve heard a million different rumors, but we’re pretty sure no one actually knows the origins of 420. Regardless, it’s a great time of day to smoke, and it’s turned into one hell of a party every year on April 20th around the country. We checked out some of the festivities in weed hubs around the US, here’s some of our favorite photos from the weekend.
Portland, Oregon is quickly becoming the new hot spot for weed tourists from around the country and world, and for good reason. They have great herb, microbrews, and an impressive concert scene that’s really been picking up on the hip hop side of things. We got the chance to check out the city’s largest 420 party, the first annual Cloud City music and cannabis exibit featuring headliner Lupe Fiasco, hosted at the Roseland Theater in downtown Portland.
