Man, I've been to Munich before and it truly is an amazing city. Check out these pictures from the official start of Oktoberfest in Munich. Courtesy of one of the best pictures blogs, "The Big Picture".
If you like alt country / texas country, I highly suggest that you check out Ryan Bingham. His newest effort, "Junky Star" is truly great. Check out this track "Hallelujah" performed live @ Charlottesville, Virginia at WNRN.
