Hybrid PRF Thundersnow 2022 (February 18-20)

It is time to Thundersnow once more! Happy Birthday!

Sadly, we will not be heading up to our favorite hotel in Escanaba, MI. This decision was crushing to make, but everyone’s health and safety are of the upmost importance! So strap in folks, cause we’re doing things a little differently this year:

BEHOLD! A hybrid event: February 18-20, 2022.

FRIDAY & SUNDAY (2/18 & 2/20) – VIRTUAL
Online band videos, Fuzzbox, karaoke and misc.!

Live streamed show at TBA location in Milwaukee, WI

In person event will require proof of vaccination to attend and masks will be required. Please stay tuned for more information.

[band set (20min max), music video, short film, karaoke song, or misc.!]

Terrace Bay 2023 OR BUST!

Quick FAQ!

1. What kind of videos do you want?

Full sets (20 min max), individual songs/videos, short films, KARAOKE, all welcome! If it hasn’t been used at a previous PRF Virtual Event, we want it!

2. Where is the in-person thing happening?

We will let you know soon. Just finalizing details. But it’s gonna be COOL and FUN and SAFE.

3. Can my band play the in-person thing?

The in-person thing will have like 5 or 6 bands total. We’d like to prioritize PRF acts that have not felt comfortable playing shows due to safety concerns, etc. but feel like this would be cool and fun and safe. The place this will be will have a fully vaxxed staff and will be clean as fuck, and we will be requiring proof of vax and masks on. We’ll let you know if we want to do an open call for bands, but for now, we’re gonna curate that part. We really don’t want to have to say “no” to three dozen bands that are sending us emails about 5-6 spots, so please don’t do that to us. MORE SOON!

PRF Virtual Thundersnow 2021

PRF VIRTUAL THUNDERSNOW 2021 – February 19-21

…Because you really don’t want Thunderflu this year


Zoom faces! Zoom dancing! Twitch tunes! You know how we do it in These Uncertain Times™️. We’re putting together a weekend of PRF Thundersnow-themed programming and we need YOU! Check back here for the Twitch stream info, Zoom rooms, schedule, and other news!

**Email your submission ideas to prfthundersnow@gmail.com**

We want to hear from you, but we also want you to be safe. Pre-recorded sets of up to 20 minutes are welcome, but we implore you to keep your masked, socially distanced safety in mind! If you can’t perform in the same room together safely, we will also accept:

• Zoom-style separate room music vids like all those famous rockers are doing this year! You like FAMOUS ROCKERS, don’t you? Cover sets or original sets, we don’t care!

• Solo sets! You wanna submit something by yourself? Acoustic love ballads or bleep bloop soundscapes? Fuckin’ cool, do it!

• Previously created material! Have an old live set filmed somewhere, or a collection of old videos? We’ll take it!

Point being: If you can’t get together safely with your band right now, YOU CAN STILL CONTRIBUTE with whatever you’ve got. We wanna see your faces! Can’t do music? Not in a band? No fucking problem!


• Comedy? (Hi Tony and Kate)

• Magic? (Hi Justin)

• Do a cooking demo and teach us how to make something like a pastry or a winter cocktail!

• Sing us some fuggin’ KARAOKE! If we get enough of them, we’ll have a whole karaoke segment! Sing along to “Space Truckin’!” It’s fine! You’re an adult!

• Please email us photos from Thunders-snow of yore!

• Other talents! Juggle something! Read a Thundersnow themed prose! Share a winter activity! Just say hi!

Again, email your questions, ideas and submissions to prfthundersnow@gmail.com and let’s get weird!

More to come! Don’t Quit! –Dixie, DJ, Jesse, Emily, Josh
