We thought this being June and all it would be a fine time to begin the introductions to you from our 2009 Sponsors.
A small and concentrated piece of the OPB puzzle, Jeremy Peterson and David Christensen at opbmusic.org have developed a truly unique Northwest voice that we feel will continue to evolve and adapt this idea of music as a regional voice, and the overall diverse scene that is developed. For those that listen to opbmusic.org, way to go, you obviously know what we are talking about. For those that this is something new we suggest you hop on over and give it a try. You may find yourself immersed in new music, with a great deal from the surrounding Northwest. This is definitely a diverse approach to formatting, and possibly for some not 100% their own favorites, however, there is a broadening approach and appeal with a lot of new music and these guys are able to acknowledge that fact. Because of this unique relationship we figured who better suited to host the Galaxy Barn at the 2009 Pickathon? We’ll see our fair share of host Jeremy Peterson throughout the weekend, and are all looking forward to a weekend full of what we feel is the most dynamic, diverse, interesting, and relevant lineup we have had to date. Certainly you wouldn’t want to miss it?
For a little taste I would like to point us all over to the opbmusic.org site for a recent in-studio they did with Blitzen Trapper. There is some great video and also some mildly candid yet informative interview. Enjoy, and please show these folks some love. We are glad to have them involved.
