BLACK FLAG has announced a spring / summer tour of North America entitled the VICTIMOLOGY TOUR. The tour kicks off on May 15 in Midland, Texas and includes dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto as well as an appearance at the Amnesia Rockfest Music Festival in Montebello, Quebec, Canada on June 20th.
The VICTIMOLOGY TOUR will feature new vocalist Mike Vallely joining the band for the first time since performing with them at the 2003 Benefit Shows at the Hollywood Palladium. Vallely is the fifth vocalist in the band’s 38 years of existence and according to founding member, guitarist, primary songwriter and sole continuous member Greg Ginn, Vallely “is the perfect frontman to capture what Black Flag was, is and will be.”
Vallely affirms, “I’m excited about performing songs from the entire Black Flag catalog. I feel confident in my ability to communicate the songs — To give them their due respect and yet still make them my own. Ginn’s songwriting is truly timeless and it gives all of the material relevance right here, right now.”
Supporting BLACK FLAG on the VICTIMOLOGY TOUR will be Ginn’s own HOR, an electronic, psychedelic, instrumental band, and Brooklyn, NY two- piece atmospheric punk band Cinema Cinema.

Outdoor Concert Series: Santana

Long before the category known as “World Music” was named, Santana’s ever-evolving sound was always ahead of its time in its universal appeal. Founded in San Francisco during the late 1960’s, the band hit the Bay Area music scene with historic shows at the Fillmore and emerged onto the global stage with an epic set at Woodstock in 1969. More than 40 years and almost as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and has won ten Grammy Awards, including a record-breaking nine for 1999’s Album of the Year, Supernatural. Santana’s 2012 album Shape Shifter debuted at #16 on theBillboard Top 200, and their forthcoming album, Corazón, Santana’s first Latin music album, features collaborations with various artists including Gloria Estefan, Ziggy Marley, Cindy Blackman Santana, Wayne Shorter, and Diego Torres.

Outdoor Concert Series: Chris Isaak

After more than 25 years, and 13 albums into his career, Chris Isaak has finally created the album he’s always wanted to make. Beyond the Sun, Isaak’s first Vanguard Records release is truly a labor of love. As a child spinning his parents’ 45s in their Stockton, CA home, Isaak became and has since been obsessed with the glory days of Memphis’ Sun Studio and the visionary artists who got their starts there, including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Having presented his own distinctive style in music over several decades, he carries it forward still by revisiting his inspirations..

Alta and Snowbird Pleased to be Ski Areas Honored by National Ski Area Association’s Golden Eagle Awards for Environmental Excellence

Published: 05/03/2013
Palm Springs, CA - May 01, 2013. The National Ski Area Association (NSAA) awarded the Golden Eagle Award for medium size ski areas (2000,000- 500,000 visits) to Utah’s four Salt Lake County resorts (Alta, Snowbird, Brighton & Solitude), under the umbrella of the visionary Cottonwood Canyons Foundation (CCF). Established in 1993, the Golden Eagle Awards are the highest honors bestowed on resorts for environmental performance.

"We are honored for this recognition of the great work of the CCF,” said Bob Bonar, who is President of Snowbird and started the CCF along with the three other cottonwood resorts. “Hundreds of thousands of dollars has been raised by this program, which supports environmental stewardship and education.”

Since 2002, an unprecedented partnership among the four Big and Little Cottonwood canyon resorts, Salt Lake City and the U.S. Forest Service has demonstrated the power of collaboration between businesses, government and the public via CCF. Alta Ski Area’s General Manager and President Onno Wieringa, who also serves as Director of the Alta Environmental Center, states “It has been extremely rewarding to be a part of the collaborative efforts and dialogue for not only our ski area, but also for the protection and education relative to the careful and sustainable use of our collective sensitive watershed areas.”

NSAA is the trade association founded in 1962 for ski area owners and operators in the United States. The announcement was made at the annual convention today at the Westin Mission Hills Resort and Spa.
