Shining on the last night of Night Lights
A quick Q-and-A with one of the festival's mainstay favorites: Aqueous
The 2016 Night Lights Music Festival is burning bright right now at the beautiful Great Blue Heron festival grounds in nearby Sherman, NY.
We've recently taken a few minutes out of the busy schedules of some of the very-awesome festival's organizers and performers for a little Q-and-A action, and, just for the hell of it on Night Lights' final day, we're continuing to share what they had to say.
First, I caught up with Scott Molloy, who, as a founder, organizer, and musician in Lazlo Hollyfeld, has been with Night Lights from the start. Then, I heard from Ethan Pieper and Sam Edwards, members of Edinboro-based jam/fusion soundscapers GNOSiS. After that, we had well-loved Erie music-maker Tyler Smilo, who tore it up with Daybreak Radio onstage Friday (and elsewhere throughout the weekend). Next -- and last --up, we have Aqueous, the Buffalo-based prog-jam master-blasters who are sharing their sonic alchemy not once, not twice, but three times -- hot damn! -- at this year's festival.
Here's what they had to say:
Ryan Smith: Thanks again for taking the time. Start off by telling me a little about that Night Lights Truth-or-Dare match (live on Night Lights' official Facebook page) the other night.
