There will be a full bar (with I.D.). Look for more information on The Core in the near future.
Scott Nolan, a.k.a. Dice One, and Mad-Ro played such a set at the Vans Warped Tour last Friday, they were invited to join the Tour on several dates in the Northwest and Canada. Scott promised to stay in touch and let us know how they're doing. Congratulations to these local boys. Ah, I can say I knew them when. Wonder if they'll invite me to the Grammy Awards? I'd love to meet Triumph.
