An open-air venue with room for 18,000 spectators, Capitol Federal Park at Sandstone welcomes more than 50 bands at five events during the summer months of 2011. Rock Star season-pass holders can spend the warm months tapping their toes, snapping their fingers, and dancing with the fervor of a gleeful water spider as they attend to up to five musical events. The harmonious happenings range from the punk rockery of the Unity Tour, with headliners 311 and Sublime, to the beachy rhythms of tribute bands paying homage to Jimmy Buffet, the Beach Boys, and Bob Marley and the Wailers at the Parrot Party. Throughout the summer, big-name tunesmiths such as Kings of Leon, Band of Horses, and Less Than Jake will take their turns upon the amphitheater's stage, helping ears become the envy of their friends when they return to school next fall.

Josie Kern, Artistic Photography's experienced shutterbug, harnesses her years of snapping photos at fashion shows and special events to expertly capture client portraits in her hometown, chalet-style studio. Single models or groups of up to eight people can strike visually pleasing poses in a prompted 60-minute photo session, as Josie immortalizes group hugs, catwalk stances, and yarn-chasing prowess.

Josie's attention to detail, eye for powerful imagery, and ability to juggle five flaming cameras has gained her work both locally and abroad, including gracing the cover of Yoga Magazine.
