More BRMC

BRMC will be performing on Last Call with Carson Daly on Monday, March 27th. Unlike previous TV show appearances, the band will be playing a mini-set for the show.

I'll have a review of last night's show soon.

SETLIST:
Grind My Bones
Fault Line
Restless Sinner
Shuffle Your Feet
Ain't No Easy Way
Howl
White Palms
Stop
Six Barrel Shotgun
In Like the Rose
Weight of the World
Promise
Sympathetic Noose
Gospel Song
Shade Of Blue
Spread Your Love
Punk Song
Too Real
Devil's Waitin'
Mercy
Heart + Soul
Open Invitation

They opened and finished with acoustic songs. The audience was mesmerized and then assaulted with furious rock and roll. How do you describe a band that plays country, gospel, soul, rock, blues, and punk? You don't. You just sit back and enjoy. BRMC is stomp music. The band plays and you stomp your feet and dance. Don't miss em next time!

Interesting List of SNL Top Ten Music Performances

Did this list miss anything? I know I remember exactly where I was during Nirvana's first performance. I was having the Granolas over for a party at my parent's place and everything pretty much stopped when Nirvana played Smells Like Teen Spirit. For some reason I felt like everyone kinda knew this was a big deal, much like the Beatles playing Ed Sullivan for my parents generation.

Another great new Built To Spill Song!


The new album sounds like they have actually captured the best parts of their live act!

Jam, Jam, and Jam!

25 inches of New Snow!!!

Do you even realize the street value of that much snow?

Stevens was insane today. We arrived at 8:55 and left shortly after 2:15. Our legs were demolished, but our our hearts were filled with ecstasy. Rachelle and I rode up with Erik and then met Jory up at Hogsback for a few stellar runs as well. It was one of those days were there was so much snow that we couldn't decide to go first. Rachelle fell in love with the power line run while I had a great line down the southern part of Southern Cross. Even Hogsback was fat with all the powder awaiting some cliff drops. Damnnn Gina!


It was snowing as we left so I am sure tomorrow will be stellar as well.

Skip Work and Hit the Slopes on Thursday

What an amazing forecast. Thursday is this year's official skip work and head to the mountains day. Rachelle and I will be at Stevens bright and early so meet us there or catch a ride!


Late Tuesday night, snow begins to really dump. Powder Day on Wednesday with 5-12in new Wed AM and snowing through the day. Excellent quality with a 1500ft snow level. Another 4-8? during the day, filling in your tracks. Some wind might be a problem Wednesday. Night skiing will be the best Wednesday night as a convergence zone will focus a lot of snow on the Summit and Stevens.
That CZ will mean possible ATFD (all time favorite day) for Stevens and Alpental on Thursday morning. Not to be denied: Baker, Crystal and White will have untracked and continued snowy conditions on Thursday, with all resorts seeing a 1000ft SL and dry light powder ? favor north slopes. Best quality snow early. Expect another 6-12inches, Thursday morning with more during the day.

Update:
UP TO TWO FEET OF SNOW IS LIKELY IN THE CASCADES FROM WEDNESDAY
THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT. SNOW LEVELS NEAR 2500 FEET ON WEDNESDAY WILL FALL TO BELOW 1000 FEET LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT. TRAVEL THROUGH THE PASSES WILL LIKELY BE DIFFICULT DURING THIS TIME PERIOD. IFYOU PLAN TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE CASCADES ANYTIME WEDNESDAY THROUGHTHURSDAY...PLAN EXTRA TIME FOR YOUR TRIP OR CONSIDER MAKINGALTERNATE PLANS.

Natalie Portman SNL Rap


I don't have the video yet, but any old-school rap fan will instantly recognize the Natalie Portman rap parody of Easy E's We Want Easy and No More ?'s off of 1988 Eazy Duz It. Hilarious.

PJ on the cover




Wouldn't this be nice? They used to HATE Rolling Stone and they would only do interviews with Spin.
However, this could just be a great Photoshop job as this is a general press photo. We'll see in a week or so.

BRMC on March 20th


There are four or five of us going. It will rock.
