Sarah Ghasedi spent her summer interning at KWSS' TMI morning program, learning the ins-and-outs of local music. This past weekend, she headed to the Apache Lake Music Festival, where over 50 Arizona bands showed of their stuff. Here are her findings.

The stretch of washboard road leading to the Apache Lake Marina & Hotel, site of the Arizona music showcase Apache Lake Mus Festival, feels endless. It's like being placed in a blender full of dust on the chop setting. While this may appear to be a deterrent, the promise of good times ahead helps push you forward (much like how I imagine our pioneer forefathers felt), though it's doubtful our ancestors could never imagine the debaucherous events that would one day take place in this beautifully serene oasis.
It's Coachella without the trust-fund, Burning Man without the overt peculiarity, and Bonnaroo without the excessive nudity.
