Pop Music Remnants

YouTube Tuesday for May 29, 2007

Growing up in a house with older siblings that had an interest in music has its perks. It meant that they usually left their music behind when they moved away from home. So for this YouTube Tuesday, we present to you a sample of some of those bands. There are some real gems here. Enjoy!

Monday Cover 27 - Doug Duff

That’s just what Doug Duff is doing as he grinds his way onto this week’s Monday Cover. We first saw Doug floating ollies over the hips at Pier Park a couple of months ago. As of recent, Doug has found solace in the new pools at Glenhaven and Battle Ground.

Congratulations Doug!

Tightest Punk Band Ever

Bad Brains Banner

Guess who is going to be at Berbati’s Pan on Friday and Saturday, May 25th and 26th? Could it be the Bad Brains? YES! Probably the tightest punk band ever and tickets are still available for the Saturday night show. Get ’em while you can because it will more than likely sell out just like the Friday night show.

Oh yeah, here are some clips of the Bad Brains for your YouTube Tuesday enjoyment.

Have Pool Will Drain

Wes Cording - FS Grind @ Pier Park

You can’t keep a good man down and we have proof. This week’s Monday Cover features the unbreakable Wes Cording. Note the dual knee braces. You won’t find a more passionate guy with respect to skating. Wes is a skater’s skater and is all about giving back. Case in point, Cold War skateboards just released their ’07 board line-up and Wes is one of the guest shapers; checkout his new Land Mine shape.

Congratulations Wes!
