Letter from the (MacK)editor: Paint the town Blue(s)

There’s so much more to Roots N Blues than, well, the blues.

It’s (almost) here, MOVErs. The annual Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival. Three days of music, food and fun. Allow MOVE to be your guide to all that’s going on this weekend.

In this issue, we’ve got concert previews of some of the featured artists (Matthew Curry is 19, and he’s probably played with Steve Miller Band more than you). We’ve also got the low-down on some of the vendors (how you doin’, Strange Donuts?)

This issue also focuses heavily on behind-the-scenes things like the Roots N Blues N BBQ Foundation, which benefits the Blues in the Schools program. We’ve got the inside scoop on Saturday’s 10K and half-marathon.

There’s so much more to Roots N Blues than, well, the blues.

There’s a lot going on at Stephens Lake Park this weekend, so we’ve included a schedule and a map so you can be sure to see everything you want to see.

Wanna share your adventures at the festival? Tag your photos on social media with #MOVERnB –– who knows, they might make the MOVEstagram. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@ManeaterMOVE) and like us on Facebook (MOVE Magazine) to connect with us during the festival.

In addition to our Roots N Blues coverage, we’ve got our regular MOVE section featuring wit and wisdom from our lovely columnistas and reviews of new music and movies. Campus Life Editor Claudia Guthrie tells us why we should all be watching “BoJack Horseman,” and we’ve reprinted last year’s True/False review of “20,000 Days on Earth,” which hit wide release this week.

So, whether you’re braving the crowds and getting down to the bluesy stylings of The Hooten Hallers or staying home and Netflixing (yes, that’s a verb now), MOVE’s got you covered.

Keep on rockin’, MOVErs.
