A few of us local Denver Boardies (FM_OFFAL FM_JEREMY B and I) have decided to add a Mountain Standard time PRF BBQ this year. We currently have secured a venue that will host Saturday and Sunday all day including music, second room for art, food and congregation. This is early planning stages and we are of course looking for a few more core volunteers on the critical items. Friday night will be at a local venue, we are renting a sanctioned DIY spot called the Bakery that is downtown for saturday and sunday activities. Good access to light rail and busses can be had from the downtown spot and certainly walkable to Air BnB areas.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to play and if you would like to attend since we will be getting a list. Also looking for volunteers, for art, food, brewing etc.
See you next year
FRIDAY – April 26th – TBA (brewery or venue)
Saturday – April 27th – The Bakery (downtown) 2-Midnight; includes BBQ and Beer

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!

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.
