Bill Allred Dives Into Ogden's Music History in the New Issue of

Bill Allred looks into Ogden's music history in the new issue of Salt Lake's "Revolv" magazine.  "Revolv" covers fashion, music, art, food and people in and out of our state.  Read an expect of Bill's article about a man who made Odgen his home and after many decade is still performing:

"If you grew up in Ogden Utah, or spend any amount of time there you’ll begin to feel the vibrations of a city that is bathed in history. From it’s early roots in American fur trade, to it’s rise to prominence as a major railroad hub in the 40’s and 50’s, Ogden holds its fair share of ghosts. They can be rough, loud and dangerous or full of laughter and wicked fun. The City itself seems alive with these specters of the past, and you will certainly hear echoes of their stories on 25th Street where, thankfully, some of their old haunts still stand.

The railroad station, which is the origin of so much Ogden history, still stands at the west end of old 25th. To the east, on either side of what the locals call ‘Two Bit Street,’ are stately hotels, restaurants and nightclubs, some of which have a shadier past as opium dens and houses of ill repute. The venerable brick facades and red pavers in the sidewalk perfectly complement the vintage signs and colorful awnings that line the street and give you a true sense of an era gone by. Of course, building names have changed over the years, as have their purpose, but echoes of the ghosts of Ogden’s history are still present..."

You can find "Revolv" in bookstores around Salt Lake and Unhinged in Sugarhouse.

A critical smash on Broadway and in London, the two-time Tony Award® winning hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season.

Based on Green Day's GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album, AMERICAN IDIOT boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. The result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares "thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I've seen this year!"

Featuring the hits "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the blockbuster title track, AMERICAN IDIOT features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, direction by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch), music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), Tony Award® winning set design by Christine Jones and Tony Award® winning lighting design by Kevin Adams.

Stone Linkin Pilots? jon | Mid Day

Stone Linkin Pilots?

Usually when a band gets a new lead singer it's bad news.  Just ask Alice In Chains how they've enjoyed the last ten years.  But in THIS case, I think it's an improvement.  Chester Bennington from Linkin Park has been hanging out with a de-heroined STP for the last few months, and now it looks like we're getting an album!  Or at least an EP.

The band says their first EP with Linkin Park's Chester Bennington will be called "High Rise," and is scheduled to hit stores on October 8th. The collection will feature five new tracks, including their previously released single "Out of Time" and another new song called "Tomorrow." But before fans get their hands on "High Rise," they can catch the Stone Temple Pilots on the road. The band kicks off a U.S. tour September 4th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. 

 

10 bucks says it's at a fair.

 

XOXOXOX
