PRF stands for Premiere Rock Forum. It refers to the Electrical Audio web forums where users can discuss best practices when polishing your aluminum fretboard.
Another year, another BBQ. This year we were asked to curate the bands on Saturday. With that came a bit more administrative responsibilities (that were mostly handled by John), and we had decided to sit this one out and make our day the best we could. The other curators were going to have none of that and we were asked to play the opening night shindig at Live Wire.
Our Saturday line up was as follows: OUT, Nick Papador & Aluminum Xylophone Project, Montrose Man, Practice Wife, Body Futures, Haunted Heads, Photo Curio, The Paver (featuring Tony as guest drummer), The Gary, Bone and Bell, Maple Stave, The Austerity Program, Self-Evident, The Rutabega, and Petrillo.
Sorry, I forgot to note who took these pictures, but let pretend I am giving proper attribution here. In any event, here's the promotional video for the BBQ made with the help of RedLetterMedia:
The show was fun, but not Nonagon's best night. Bass speaker problems threw me off and John destructed his indestructible guitar. :(
We played a Hüsker Dü cover, threw out some stickers and I grew a ridiculous mustache.
What is becoming an annual event for Nonagon, we will be somewhere on the bill for this three day event in the snowy reaches of the Upper Peninsula.
