Ep. 9 of LBC Podcast-- Nick MacDaniels of Big Something and The Big What? Festival

**If you're new to podcasts, there is an explanation at the bottom of the page**

In this week's episode we talk with Nick MacDaniels, singer and guitarist from the Burlington, NC band Big Something.

Nick talks about what it takes to balance the growth of a band as well as running their festival, The Big What?.
He describes how the festival got started and what it's like behind the scenes. He also talks about what's the most important lessons he's learned, and why he thinks The Big What? experience is unique for both fans and musicians.

He also tells us about the worst moment Big Something has had onstage and how they overcame it.

Nick chose three bands from this year's festival to feature:
Turkuaz from Brooklyn, NY -- "X.Y.Z" 15:21
Dr. Bacon from Asheville, NC -- "When I'm Gone" 29:16
Spiritual Rez from Boston, MA -- "Bring It On" 40:52

We also listen to one of the first Big Something songs ever written, "A Simple Vision" 53:24
