Anybody down in San Diego?? There is a sweet special release at Alesmith.
Originally a faint idea dreamt up by Tony Gwynn and Peter Zien, the now imperial version of their collaboration, San Diego Pale Ale .394, will make an appearance in our 20th Anniversary Specialty Release Series. All proceeds from this beer will go towards raising funds for the Tony Gwynn Museum which will honor this hall of famer and raise money for TAG (Tony & Alicia Gwynn Foundation) at AleSmith's new facility.
HALL OF FAME IMPERIAL SAN DIEGO PALE ALE .394 (ABV 9%)
AleSmith's Hall of Fame version of the legendary Tony Gwynn .394 San Diego Pale Ale pays tribute to the one and only Mr. Padre and his commitment to excellence. Just like its predecessor, this "imperial" or "double" .394 is bursting with even more American hops, lending the beer a diverse palate of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Tony envisioned this beer in early 2014 and AleSmith is honored to make another one of his dreams come true.
"Tony Gwynn was incredibly proud to be a member of the San Diego community; he impacted lives all over the world. He was the heart, soul, and flavor of San Diego for so many years and now you can taste his passion with every sip." - Alicia Gwynn
You should head down to Calgary for Sled Island. They're playing the main stage on the Saturday with Drive Like Jehu, Viet Cong and Ex Hex.
Also - Gaytheist at Palomino on June 18th. Finally my chance to see them!
Dude, I wish I could go to Sled Island. That is in my top two favorite festival lineups so far this year (Levitation is the other). Not in the cards for me though. Gaytheist makes me smile all the time. You are going to have so much fun. It is a music show with a comedy show between songs (Jason, the guitarist/vocalist is hilarious). I think I am going to spin some Gaytheist today now that I think about it. HAPPY FRIDAY Y'ALL!
I'm always beating the Good To Die Records drum on here but they are doing a Spring Cleaning Sale right now. Really cheap records. If you are going to Bumbershoot and are curious about Constant Lovers make sure to snag that one...
Didn't have enough energy to make it to the Friday or Sunday shows this weekend but I did make it out for the Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth show at Columbia City Theater on Saturday. First off, that venue is rad. If you haven't been there you should find a show you want to see and go. It is an historic building that has had Jimi and Etta James grace it's stage.
BOTSC were incredible. There are only two other shows this year that I have been to that have achieved this level of awesomeness. Those were SUMAC and Caribou. BOTSC should be witnessed by all of you (especially those that like heavy music). Next month they have some shows lined up and they implied that they have some big news in the near future regarding more touring:
One of the recreational weed shops in Bellingham is celebrating by having $4 pre-rolled joints and $4 chocolate bars (1 each per customer for the first 100 customers). Also having a bunch of vendors (growers and such) and music. It is called 2020 solutions and will be going on from 3-6. They are pretty close to Kulshan Brewing so I think an afternoon stroll may be in order.

A friend got bailed on for a show tonight at Mt. Baker Theater. So I am going to watch Neko Case tonight. I don't really know any of her music but I am still excited to go see some live music! I potentially am going to be seeing a lot this weekend:
Friday - Wild Throne @ The Shakedown Saturday - BOTSC, Lesbian, Grenades @ Columbia City Theater Sunday - Great Falls, Tacos!, Theories, Old Iron @ Chop Suey
Taking full advantage of help with the baby from father in-law. Don't think I can stay for 4/20 though Burrito. Turns out that is the day he flies back to Baltimore
