The road to Balloonfest continues as we gear up for the big three day party at Wet N Wild Waterworld this weekend. The balloons launch all three days at Santa Teresa Country Club in the mornings, really early, like 6am. Then head over to Wet N Wild for the rides, grilling, babes and of course the concerts!

We have a great lineup this year, including Buckcherry, Dead Sara, P.O.D. and Hellyeah! But don't forget all the great local bands that play all weekend long, too. There are a ton of bands, and another one of my favorites is a band called Alodex! They play Monday afternoon, and if you haven't seen them, make sure to do it this weekend.

They're a bunch of great guys, and they can play! Lots of cool riffing, solos and harmonies really grab you and don't let go throughout their set. I got to sit down with the guys in the band and talk about Balloonfest, their music and some of the shows they've played and the bands they love.

Part 1 - they talk about their music and some of the bands around town they like:

Check out their track "In Your Hands":

Part 2 - where did the name Alodex come from?
