Broadway Street: Our New Home. Then and Now

For all those who haven't heard, we have moved studios!!! I know, we have only been talking about moving for the past...uh.. forever; but, just so you know our new office is located at 50 W Broadway(300 S). So, I know what you're thinking and no, you can't pick up your prizes and concert tickets at the old Trolley Corners stations. We won't be there, so don't try. It is a giant building with "Broadway Media" on the side. You can't miss it.

 

        

It looks like this!

Broadway street(or 300 S, whatever you want to call it) is full of history. This new building/home to X96 is about to join this historic part of town. Let's take a look at what else is on Broadway!

 

  

Pictured above is the old Zephyr club, located on 301 S, West Temple. This club, closed since October 2003, used to be home many great live acts such as Morrisey, 311, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and many more. Now it just sits there and takes up space. There has been talk of turning it into a parking lot, but so far nothing has been done.

          

This old Deli was established in the 1960s by a german couple, the Linners. Since the death of founder, Erich Linner in 1993, Linner's hasn't had much business and is now closed.

      

 

Squatter's Pub(147 W Broadway) has become a hub for local brews in Salt Lake City and has been a  longtime advocate of local business for the community and is powered by BlueSky wind power

         

 

Broadway Hotel was built shortly after the completion of two major rail depots in the city. Built circa 1905, this is on eof the earliest hotels in Salt Lake City.

Okay, enough with the history lessons. Now let's show you our office and our shiny new toys!!!

     

 

    (Since when did we get an Atari in the new office?! Oh wait, it's just editing equipment. Maybe I can still get it to play some old pitfall games..)

Weezer Tease New Song and Announce Album Release Date Corey O'Brien |

Weezer Tease New Song and Announce Album Release Date

Nearly four years since "Hurly" was release to an arguable "thud!"  We have our fingers crossed for the upcoming album, "Everything Will Be Alright In The End."  Last week the band release the cover art to a surprise that this wouldn't be their Purple album or Beige album.  This week Weezer announced the album would be released on September 30th and have provided, as it is Weezer Wednesday, another teaser clip the internet has gone ga-ga over from a song called, "Return to Ithaca."

Rick Ocasek, who produced their Blue and Green albums has returned to whip the band into shape for this album so we could be in for some memorable songs on this album. Even though, you could argue those albums are the band's best (outside of Pinkerton), Weezer admitted Ocasek wasn't their first choice. We are glad they had a change of heart.

Fresh X: Morrissey "World Peace is None of Your Business" Album Stream Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Morrissey

Moz fans unite!  Morrissey will release his 10th solo album on July 15th, but as the future refuses to allow things to be released on their actual date you can stream the new album early over at NPR.

Of course, Morrissey played Kingsbury Hall just a couple of months ago after making up for a cancelled date the previous year due to illness: his or his mother's depending on the source you talked to. He didn't play too many Smith's songs, which seemed to bother my buddy who had never seen Morrissey before, but felt he had seen a landmark rather than just show so he wasn't too disappointed.

Enjoy the stream.

FRESH X: New Music From Alt-J Corey O'Brien |

FRESH X: New Music From Alt-J

Their music slightly rusty, but in a good way and literary in verse.  They are named after a keyboard shortcut. Their first single, "Fitzpleasure" is based on a novel called "Last Exit to Brooklyn" that isn't exactly family-friendly - nor mainstream.  Somehow, beyond all those reasons many people found Alt-J to be something unique and interesting, which is not an easy feat these days. Pop music has taken over like weeds in the modern rock's garden.

Alt-J is following up their fantastic album, "An Awesome Wave" with "This Is All Yours" on September 22nd, which you can pre-order here.
