Recap Of The 6th Annual Freakout Festival In Ballard Nov. 16-17th

Every November local Seattle indie record label Freakout Records holds an annual festival. Originally starting in 2013 by Guy Keltner’s desire to showcase local rock bands under the title of “Psychedelic Holiday Freakout Festival,” it’s since grown. Freakout Records then came and made the event into the “Freakout Fest” it is today.

Each year the event is held in a different neighborhood in Seattle utilizing local businesses and bars for performances.  This year it came back to Ballard November 16-17th. What has become a dependable showcase of local talent grew this year as they brought in bands from around the US, Mexico, and even the UK.

While my fellow RMR writer that came along was more intent on this year’s inclusion of several hip-hop acts, my sights were set primarily on the bands. I set out Friday and Saturday night to absorb all the local acts I know and love, as well as some of the popular out of town bands.

Friday Night

It was a cold night in Ballard when I set out with my scarf and multiple layers ready to be elbow-deep in hearty tall-boy guzzling and hot rock-n-roll. I also came ready for the weekend with two full gram cartridges of delicious oil for my vape pens. One was a reliable Soul Assassin hybrid cartridge from Leaf Werx. The other was a crazy delicious Cookiewreck raw CO2 cart from Landrace Labs. I highly recommend either for a warming high that keeps your brain buzzing.

Recap Of The 6th Annual Freakout Festival In Ballard Nov. 16-17th

he first band on my line-up for Friday was Denver psych-dream-rock band, Flaural. These dudes set me into a straight up trance. No doubt from the driving drums, thumping bass, delayed guitar, catchy keyboard work, and washed-out vocals from frontman Collin Johnson (what an amazing name…) I highly recommend scoping these guys.

I was then able to run around and catch sets from my friends in Brackets who bring so many elements of technical rock and pop-punk to the table that I can’t deny my enjoyment. This came after I caught the tail-end of Chris King & The Gutterballs set in the Filson store that was both intimate and energetic. Next came a somber, yet eloquent set from the ever wonderful local star, Sassyblack at Lagunitas.

Recap Of The 6th Annual Freakout Festival In Ballard Nov. 16-17th

On my way to Sassyblack I made a stop at Conor Byne to scope Portland group, Roselit Bone. These folks brought an insane vibe that was emanating largely from band leader Josh McCaslin. Imagine pandrogyne cowboy, with mascara smearing as they’re shredding guitar and wailing at the top of their lungs. Combine this with a day of the dead feel while trumpets weep and you got one crazy performance.

The end of my evening was spent enjoying the witchy, scuzzy rock treatments of LA’s Death Valley Girls. Vocalist Bonnie Bloomgarden brought tangible energy to the room between captivating vocal shrieks and howls. Aside from lead guitarist Larry Schemel shredding on ZZ Top-esque riffs, the ladies on drums and bass lent support to Bloomgarden’s powerful chorus lines.

Saturday Night

For the second evening of Freakout Fest I came ready for more powerful live music. I met up with my fellow RMR writer to chief a few blunts and scope some hip hop acts. I caught sets from Koga Shabazz, Smash Bros, and JusMoni. Each lit up the stage, but JusMoni really brought the sultry vibes that I love.

Local upbeat rockers, Biblioteka put on a great performance at Conor Byrne earlier in the night that I saw. Their new female vocalist has been a favorable addition to their sound. In that same regard Tres Leches are another killer local indie rock group that filled up Cafe Umbria with their catchy tunes.

Recap Of The 6th Annual Freakout Festival In Ballard Nov. 16-17th

During Porter Ray’s dope set I had to make a break for The Sunset to make it in to see legendary Portland rockers, The Shivas. I’ve brought up energy a lot but goddamn did this band bring the heat. They had The Sunset literally at capacity throughout their performance. I had to wait a bit for re-entry at one point but it was well worth it. These guys put on a raucously groovy performance that had people bopping and moving. They’ve been rocking stages since 2006 and have a bevy of recorded material you should check out.

After The Shivas I went over to see some of Stas Thee Boss‘s set which I found to be exquisite from her witty word-play and chill beat selection. My last stop of the night was to Conor Byrne to scope the wild vibes of local punk group, MONSTERWATCH. Holy shit did these guys have the whole bar going full-throttle. I was standing up on the benches lining the wall as the vocalist dove into the crowd and surfed around yelling into the mic. As he re-took the stage several pits broke out of happily thrashing listeners. It was a spectacle to behold.

Find Out How Much Weed Snoop Dogg Smokes A Week!

Snoop Dogg reigns as one of the most infamous cannabis-centric celebrities for good reason—he’s constantly chiefing! Have you ever thought to yourself—how much weed does Snoop actually smoke? He took to Reddit last year to field such questions on an AMA (ask me anything) thread. Along with questions about other celebrities he’s smoked with, and fun tidbits about his personal usage, some numbers arose.

The Dogfather professed a staggering stat by the end of the AMA that was along the lines of 81 blunts a day, 7 days a week. By definition this would mean Snoop holds down a full-time job smoking cannabis.

We ran a rough calculation to get the math behind this claim. If Snoop does in fact smoke 81 blunts a day, and each blunt takes 6 minutes to burn…that would equate to 8.1 hours of inhaling per day!

Find Out How Much Weed Snoop Dogg Smokes A Week!

This may or may not have been a random number Snoop tossed out, but undoubtedly the dude is smoking. Even in casual videos of conversations with Snoop he’s always ripping something. Is he really smoking that tough though? How can your throat not be in shreds from all those Swishers, Dutch’s and Backwoods?

As the cannabis industry rises into pop culture more comfortably, we’ve seen more celebrity advocates poke their heads out. Celebs such as Snoop and Willie Nelson (Willie’s Reserve) are opening up stores, creating brands, and making appearances at pot shop meet-and-greets. Users are getting opportunities like they’ve never seen as they can now smoke the same strains their favorite celebrities puff on. This is opening up new avenues for people to potentially even work for some of their most sought after celebs growing, or selling their cannabis.

Highlights From The Reddit Q&A With Snoop Dogg

Q: Whats the longest you’ve gone without smoking?
A: 164 days
Q: Do you roll your own blunts or are they rolled for you?
A: Both
Q: Who’s better at smoking weed, Dave Chappelle or Dr. Dre?
A: Dave Chappelle!
Q: I’ve heard that you’ve said Willie Nelson is the only person who has out smoked you. Is this true?
A: Willie is 1 of tha greatest to do it!! Smokn n music
Q: Do you believe in the taxation of Mary Jane with legalization or would prefer to see it have little to no taxes?
A: Legalize it n if that means tax it then do it.
Q: On average, how much do you smoke in a week?
A: 81 blunts a day x 7
