PRF Thundersnow ’19: Feb. 15-17, 2019!

PRF THUNDERSNOW 2019 FACEBOOK EVENT LINK IS HITHER

Room rates will be posted early next week! For now, if ya wanna play the thing, email prfthundersnow@gmail.com with your band name and a link to your tunes.

Here are this year’s room rates. You can call Terrace Bay Inn at 906-786-7554. When calling, be sure to mention you are booking for the “PRF Thundersnow” weekend. That weekend is blocked off for us at the moment, so that’s the password.

We’re gonna stick to roughly the same number of bands and schedule that Jeff put together last year, because that was chill as fuck, so that was like 20, 21 bands. So yeah. You know the drill – we’ll shoot for a mix of old faves and fresh BLOOD.

For anyone seeing this that’s not familiar and is all, “ooh, what’s that?” This is our annual getaway to the frozen nort’ of the Upper Peninsula, where we all take over the coolest hotel in the UP, set up bands in the ballroom, jump from the sauna into the pool and then into the hot tub and then into the snow and back into the pool, and partake in as much debauchery as one can with a bunch of fizzy water around. It’s a thing.

Let’s play some songs, get weird in the fish cleaning room, shotgun beers on the frozen lake, have a pool party, eat, drink and be merry. It’s everyone’s birthday. Happy birthday!

ABOUT

PRF NYC is a gathering of independent music fans and friends that met through Electrical Audio’s forum section. This will be the second hosting of the PRF ( the jocularly dubbed “premier rock forum”) in New York City, following previous PRF events in Chicago, Milwaukee, Louisville, the San Francisco Bay Area, among others. United by a shared interest in record engineering, independent music, and aluminum guitars, PRF NYC is an event to bring this community of bands together.
