When it comes to BIG music festivals in the Northwest, the first that comes to mind is Sasquatch because damn, have you ever watched bands play in front of huge river? So it’s a tall order, yet it was my first corporate sponsored festival since Coachella back in aught-five, so this event was begging for our attention.

After all if you enjoy getting buzzed, the alcohol business is not a bad place to be…just sayin’.

Which brings us to Sarah Hepola’s Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget, a compelling account of one woman’s “drinking life” and her very personal journey back from self-destruction.
