The date and location of the first Thanksgiving celebration is a topic of modest contention. The traditional "first Thanksgiving" is the celebration that occurred at the site of Plymouth Plantation, in 1621. The Plymouth celebration occurred early in the history of what would become one of the original thirteen colonies that became the United States. The celebration became an important part of the American myth by the 1800s. This Thanksgiving, modeled after celebrations that were commonplace in contemporary Europe, is generally regarded as America's first. Elementary school teacher Robyn Gioia has argued that the earliest attested "thanksgiving" celebration in what is now the United States was celebrated by the Spanish on September 8, 1565 in what is now Saint Augustine, Florida. Today, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving dinner is held on this day, usually as a gathering of family members and friends.
I figured we can all use this info on Thanksgiving. Overall... Just give thanks for your family, friends, dogs, cats, life, people who you love and don't like so much. Just give thanks no matter what it is... It just feels good man!

The celebration has some elements of a festival of the dead. The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the Otherworld became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. The family's ancestors were honored and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm. In Scotland the spirits were impersonated by young men dressed in white with masked, veiled or blackened faces.
Samhain was also a time to take stock of food supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. Bonfires played a large part in the festivities. All other fires were doused and each home lit their hearth from the bonfire. The bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into its flames. Sometimes two bonfires would be built side-by-side, and people and their livestock would walk between them as a cleansing ritual.
Another common practise was divination, which often involved the use of food and drink.
We like to party so we think you all should come out and celebrate Halloween witrh us at the Town Square Tavern! No cover and mad drink specials!

I'm kind of a sensitive guy and therefore I like to listen to music that really hits you in the heart. That kind of sounds wack but it's true and I don't care if you make fun of me the next time you see me... Whatever. Now I'm not talking about listening to Lionel Ritchie's End Less Love or anything like that. I'm talking about...
This guy is from Ontario, Canada and has been around since about 1994 or so. I got into him by mistake really. I went to The Khyber Pass in Philly when I was living there in 1995 and ended checking this dude's show out... I was blown away by his presence. It was just him, a Guitar and a Harmonica. Deep voice and super real lyrics. He is a great musician and song writer. I was instantly hooked and got his first record "Everything I Long For."
Check out these tracks from that records..
I'm To Blame
Assignment In Space With Rip Foster
Buy his music from HERE
Another group that I was into at the same time was Knapsack. Definitely more Emo I guess. They stemmed from a group called SamIam who were equally as Emo. Whetever Emo was at the time I guess. I never called it Emo until somebody told me about the "genre." Whatever, it's still great music and I have these records on vinyl only, so I recently discovered my records again and started to reminise about when I saw them in NJ at the Roxy! Wow what great times there. Anyway these guys were great and I don't think that they are together anymore which is fine because I'm sure they were unstable as a band anyway... Hehehe.
Tracks from there second record "Day Three of My New Life "
Tracks from "This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now"

Artist: Rodan Album: "Rusty" Release Date: April 1994 Label: Quarterstick Records Genre: Math-Rock, Indie-Rock, Experimental-Rock, Post-Rock, Post-Hardcore Mood: Cathartic, Self-Conscious, Somber, Gloomy Reminds Of: June Of 44, Slint, The Sonora Pine, Sonic Youth
Everyone seems to know a great deal about Rachel's and the Shipping News, two of Jason Noble's most recent projects. Most seem to know about June of '44, Jeff Meuller's pre-Shipping News project. Many know whom Tara Jane O'Neil is, and that she's played with Retsin and the Sonora Pine. Hell, some even recognize Kevin Coultas' name from the time he put in with Come. But what most people don't realize is that all four of these talented people came together to form Rodan. Existing briefly - less than three years - Rodan managed to amass a small, devastating catalogue. The cream of their crop was Rusty, their only full-length album. A combination of all things good from the realms of hardcore, jazz, math-rock and the then-unnamed post-rock, Rusty is a six-song masterpiece that deserves the same respect as anything Slint, Shellac or Godspeed You Black Emperor! have ever released. And that is exactly the terrain Rodan used to excavate: noisy, scrappy post-punk stretched to its emotional and sonic limits; tremendously long arrangements that never relied on repetition and that beat every drop of meaning and worth out of their every second. And "beat" is the right word. Rusty is heavy. It is violent. Imagine if you will, the Dillinger Escape Plan melding with Slint. You may have noticed that I have dropped the S-word twice already, and I really should take a moment to address this. Yes, Slint and Rodan both hailed from Louisville, KY; yes, each band was made up of expert musicians; and yes, they both wrote lengthy, dynamic songs, but the similarities end there. Slint wrote sparse, jarring pieces that made use of space, subtlety and those wonderfully crushing volume shifts. Rodan, on the other hand, wrote busy, turgid, churning songs that rarely used volume as a dynamic because the music was almost always loud as fuck. Yet I still see the words "Slint" and "Rodan" used synonymously almost everywhere I look. And perhaps that's why I needed to write this, to remind people that Rodan was unique, and that Rusty has held up as well, if not better, than the other indie rock classics of the early '90s. It is nothing less than 43 minutes of painstakingly, lovingly, expertly assembled thunder: alarming as it shudders above you, soothing as it rolls in the distance. The album opens with the rich, chiming layers of "Bible Silver Corner", a guitars-and-bass instrumental that sees the members of Rodan work through several gorgeous, distinct movements, provoking tears with its beauty, paranoia with its dissonance, wonder with its whole. It never gets loud, forcing you to pay attention to every note and echo. Picture modern-day Fugazi playing a Rachel's composition in a candle-lit cathedral. Is the hair on the back of your neck standing up yet? If so, prepare for it to be singed off by the alarmingly harsh "Shiner". In two-and-a-half minutes, Rodan blasts through six alternating movements, each one an off-kilter, complex blow to the head. Fierce and visceral in all the places "Bible Silver Corner" was haunting and delicate, "Shiner" sets the stage for the poetic brutality that is the rest of the album: dual-guitar mangling, an other-worldly rhythm section and Jason Noble's bark-wail-whisper vocals. I wish I could describe his screaming of "Shoot me out the sky", but without being able to show the words ripping in half, italics will have to do. The final four songs are an unthinkable amalgam of the first two. "The Everyday World of Bodies", a twelve-minute exercise in tension, shifts seamlessly from punishing, percussive math-rock to quiet, albeit rough-hewn, mazes of plaintive tenderness. It's a constant juxtaposition that never grows tired, but it does run its course, and that's when the variations begin. Guitars begin fluttering and clashing in different ways, time signatures are hacked at and the crucial refrains - "everything changes", "come on, come on, come" and "I will be there" - are unveiled, expanding the song's revolving structure while exposing "Bodies" for what it is, a love song. And when those lovers' promises are finally unleashed in Noble's ragged bellow, they are as chilling as they are lovely. "Chilling" can also be used to describe Tara Jane O'neil's vocals, fully introduced in the early stages of "Jungle Jim". A lonely, disturbing groan, it's a perfect contrast to Noble's voice, and floats like a dense fog over the dissonant, spooky verses. But this is Rodan, so the quiet soon erupts into a scraping whirlwind. "Jungle Jim" does the quiet-loud dance, but avoids redundancy by changing tempo and tone. Every dynamic is used, so it's not just a matter of rising tension and release, it's a matter of true contrast. It's an unpredictable, frightening song, replete with a distant feedback and screaming outro that you shouldn't listen to if you're alone in your house. "Gauge" opens with a discordant, sludgy introduction that begins to take shape just as it ends, making way for a very clean, linear structure over which Noble and O'Neil layer cryptic words. "An anthem designed to take care of you", is how the song is described in the liner notes, and I tend to agree. "Gauge" is simpler and more melodic than most of the material on Rusty and there is a definite feeling that the song is an attempt to cope with loss. How better to accomplish healing than with passionate, abrasive art-rock? "Tooth Fairy Retribution Manifesto" begins with a battered music box and a considerably funky drumbeat, bringing to mind Noble's recent, excellent Permission project. The funk disappears and waves of distorted guitars crash through, loud but beautiful and soothing. A brief quietness ensues, making use of another unsettling vocal performance from O'Neil, and then come the riffs. A brisk, absolutely filthy groove drives the song forward. No blindsiding shifts, just a straight-ahead, ass-kicking track that ends explosively and unexpectedly. And sadly. Only one other person I know owns this album. I have still only read one review of it in my entire life, and that was when I was in tenth grade. If you don't own Rusty, you need to. Please buy it. Together we can teach people that the words "Slint" and "Rodan" do not represent the same things, that Rodan stood on their own, and that Rusty is indeed one of the finest independent albums ever released.

What more could be said about Benji Pierson AKA "Ruckus" The man, in my opinion is one of a kind. If you know him, you would know what I'm saying and if you don't... well...better at least meet him once.
He is the Art Director for Storm Show Studios and he is also the primary artist for Rob Kingwill's Avalon 7 snowboarding collective. He Sci-Fi Graffiti style has been seen all around town and just recently at the Snake River Brewing Company. If you missed out on getting one of his pieces... here is a great opportunity to grab one while they are hot! There will be a variety of price ranges so don't be shy.
Dj Sessions from Seattle will also be there spinning some fresh beats for the crowd and who knows... Maybe there will be some Celebs there!

I have spun many a records and made plenty of mixes... But for some reason making Mixtapes are something completely different. When I was a kid, I would make mix tapes with my Boombox and WPLJ Radio station. Little did I know there was an art to making a mix tape. It was not only making a list of songs that would work together, but also making sure the EQ's were also dialed and the art work for the cover was cool. Making a mixtape for a girlrfiend or ex-girlfriend was a totally different art form and I know that you know what I'm talking about. I made so many over the years and of course I can't find any of them. Since I started DJ'ing, I have made several mixtapes. Actually I think I made about 10 or so actual "Mixtapes." Damn... I wish I still had some of those. I got my computer around 2000 and started making mix cd's. I fucking hated calling them that. I have made quite a few mix cd's and once again I think I actually have only 2 mixes on record... oh well. Every time you would say "mixtape," people would be like... "They still make tapes?" Anyway... They are always going to be mixtapes to me and I always love making them. I have just recently got a copy of my last mix from my friend because, of course, I don't have one. I figured I would share this with you. I only tried this mix about 5 times before I had to have a CD Release Party. I'm stoked on it... So enjoy!

Starting in 2005 under the name SUICIDE HOLIDAY, KRASHKARMA has independently booked 8 national tours, played over 250 shows, including Germany, produced two EPs and sold over 4000 units out of the back of their '78 Dodge Van. This did not go unnoticed in the Hollywood scene as they won the "Rock City News Award" for " best independent touring band" in December 2007.
The Los Angeles based band was formed by Ralf Dietel after his 30 day career as NINE INCH NAILS guitar player.
The producer/singer/guitarist moved to the US from Germany where he stole the stage from bands such as FOO FIGHTERS and RAMMSTEIN. On the drums and vocals is the award winning Nicole Skistimas, whose dangerous style and sound are emblematic to the core vision of KRASHKARMA: a pretty girl who doesn't just play the drums, she destroys them.
In 2008 the band recorded and self released a new song every month along with a video to go with it on their webpage, placed songs in independent movies and have recently begun writing and licensing music for FOX SPORTS .
KRASHKARMA will release their new EP "seven deadly sounds" on Jan 11th, 2009. This will be followed by a North West tour through February , a South West tour to SXSW in march and a national tour into the summer which will lead the band back to Europe till fall.
KRASHKARMA is powered by BC RICH, DDRUM, PRESONUS, PAISTE and FXPANSION
KRASHKARMA is playing live at the Pink Garter Theatre in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on Sunday January 25, 2008. Doors open at 8:00pm. Ticket are $15 at the door. THIS IS AN ALL AGES SHOW THAT SHOULD NOT BE MISSED! DJ VERT-ONE will be opening with some metal to fill your pre-show heads!
