First Snow, Blitzen Trapper, & Some Other Good Stuff

There’s nothing like waking up to a fresh snow fall. This morning Park City got it’s first taste of winter with a couple inches of that fluffy white stuff. Time to get the rock ski’s out for some pre-season turns. Here’s to a good winter.

Blitzen Trapper is yet another great band out of Portland. I don’t know what it is, but Portland is pumping them out left and right. Just picked up the latest album, Furr, and am looking forward to giving it a good listen-to.

Speaking of Portland bands, Hillstomp and Power of County put on a helluva show last night over at Burt’s. Head on over to the Hillstomp Headquarters and pick up some merch… it’ll be money well spent.

Hillstomp @ Burt’s Tiki Lounge

For one night only Burt’s Tiki Lounge (recently rated one of the top 20 dive bars in the country) will be transformed into a bona fide Mississippi juke-joint. Portland duo Hillstomp will be performing their “Bucket ‘N’ Slide Brand Rock ‘N’ Roll” tomorrow night at in Salt Lake. While band member’s John Johnson (buckets) and Henry Christian (guitars) might hail from the great Northwest, the two are rooted in the sounds of the North Mississippi Delta, taking over where such legends as Muddy Waters, Son House, and R.L. Burnside left off.

Burt’s Tiki Lounge is located @ 726 State Street. Doors open @ 9:00.

Check out Hillstomp.

Silver Jews @ The Urban Lounge

Last night we ventured down to the valley for the Silver Jews show at the Urban Lounge in Salt Lake. Monotonix kicked off the evening with a high-octane terror of a performance.

Support Community Radio – KPCW 91.1 FM

Most of today’s radio sucks. The art of the radio DJ has long been overtaken by ipods, satellite radio, and podcasts just to name a few. However, community radio has remained a stronghold for the DJ in the classic sense. Such stations as Seattle’s KPWC, Chicago’s WXPN, and KRCW, to name a few, have been putting out great big-brother-free radio for years, and are still going strong.

Tonight I’ll begin my first “official” shift as part of KPCW Park City’s volunteer DJ staff. While it’s far from glamorous, not to mention that the pay sucks, at least I’ll be able to share my love for music with anybody who’s willing to listen. I’ll be on at 7p.m. Park City time, every other Wednesday starting tonight, so listen in.
