This evokes memories of The Underground nightclub in Seattle on University Way (aka "the Ave") in the late eighties and early nineties. Descending to the underground to dance all night was an experience I'll never forget. Crowbar could be really cool for Boise.
for all your custom metal fabrication needs contact BadBilly's Metal Werx.. whom did the custom metal work at the Crow Bar
Years ago I frequented this place to see/hear THE UNINVITED play. I took many photos of the band, and was often asked if I was someone's mom. Nope, but I got some good pictures and made some friends too.
These guys rock!
John Nèmeth, Memphis Grease.
Umm. Brings to mind the nanotechnological experiments shown the "The Manchurian Candidate".
That was one of the most excruciating performances I've ever seen. I do think he's lost his mind. I wonder what possessed him to think it was a good idea.
I think it's awesome. No longer a employee of the Statesman and having some fun.
Is he on drugs in this?
Dan the man!
A small correction: "Big Branch Mine" is actually about the Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia. Sorry, Lee.
I bought this CD last week and love every song on it. If you like the singer/song-writer genre you will really love this CD. I'm so happy I found it, and very happy Boise Weekly is promoting it. It's fantastic.
As a member of the long-defunct Freeman's Attic and So Far Gone, some of my best memories are of playing the Crazy Horse (1994-1996). One overlooked aspect of the club was the welcoming attitude towards local groups and the up and coming - not just the great bands that came through ( I saw Fugazi there in 95' I think it was..). Yes, the bands I was in sucked, but the Crazy Horse gave us a home, and we loved it - good times...
Victor, Linda and Arthur Ballinger have made KBSU a fantastic music station. I'm sure Carl will carry on Victor's great tradition. I love listening to music you just don't hear on any other radio station. I worked in the "evil" commercial radio many years ago when I lived near Chicago. You played what the boss or sponsors wanted you to play or only the top 40, etc. Not unlike commercial radio today with it's music feeds from the big conglomerates. I've been a long-time supporter of public radio and will continue to do so.

I get it, man. Sometimes it's way easier to write half an article and then just post the second half of it in list form in the comments section. All the great music journalists do that.
Also, kudos on the inclusion of a tribute album. Nothing lazy about that, my dude!
