A music festival becomes the amalgamation not just of musicians, but of everything that surrounds music culture. It is the drinking and the drugs and the recklessness. It is getting in a little trouble.
We were lucky enough to snag music producer Eliot Lipp for Friday's Eight Forty-Eight. Though he's called all three coasts -- Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City -- his home, he lives in New York now, and is here for the weekend to perform at an after party for the North Coast Music Fest at the Bottom Lounge.
