Ten years ago today, February 6, 2005, was my first show as an intern at Mountain Stage. I drove that morning from Radford, Va. to begin officially logging hours for a 460-hour internship to complete my Music Business degree. It was a Super Bowl Sunday - Eagles vs. Patriots - and Mountain Stage had a characteristically diverse line-up for the live audience in Charleston that night: Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Hot Club of Cowtown, Chuck Prophet, The Duhks and Amos Lee .

July is history and the Halloween candy is already showing up in stores. That means it’s never too soon to start thinking about raking leaves, Pumpkin Ales,  and cooler weather. With all of the perks that Fall brings also comes a bunch of great Mountain Stage events we’re planning here in Charleston, WV. We'd love to have you come see a show in person.

On Thursday April 10 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted seminal grunge rockers Nirvana into its 2014 class. The next morning the internet was abuzz about the female-led performances that honored the group’s late front-man Kurt Cobain(1967-1994). Reunited Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were joined on stage by Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, St. Vincent and Lorde to pay homage to the late grunge-music icon.
