Road Tripping with Rock Stars
For our August issue, writer Rachel Levin and photographer Jen Siska hopped in the van with Bay Area country-rock band Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers to get an insider view of how musicians road trip the West — and they picked up lots of helpful tidbits for navigating the backroads and postage stamp-sized towns of our beloved region.
Here, we bring you behind-the-scenes photos from that tour through Wyoming and Idaho, with snapshots of performances and sights along the way.
For more fun with Nicki and co., check out their lovely live acoustic set at Sunset’s Menlo Park, CA campus.
