Busy weekend in the Garden City. I’ll be DJing a couple weddings, but before I head off to a hotel ball room, I’ll be taking my little tribe down to Rock The Shores.

I had to work yesterday, so I missed USS which sucks. I love those guys.  Today I am amped to see Jesse Roper and The Dudes before I have to take off and DJ.

Yesterday I had to work. During my show I talked to a writer at Pacific Standard named Ryan Jacobs…he used to be at The Atlantic. Last fall he wrote an article about Iceland and how the people there fiercely believe in elves.

Why So Many Icelanders Still Believe in Invisible Elves

Jimmy Eat World 'My Best Theory'

The BIG new this morning on The Morning Zone… Dylan and Jason announced the details for this summer’s Rock The Shores.

Two Days in July… July 13th and 14th at the Juan de Fuca Rec Center’s lower fields.  So many bands to get excited about.

I want to start by getting amped on Jimmy Eat World coming to Victoria.

I’ve been lucky enough to see the band a few time sin concert and love them.  Coral is the bigger fan and has all their records at home.  Many of them she can sing along to, word-for-word.

Jimmy Eat World have seven records and all of them are outstanding.  Some of the earlier ones maybe lack the syrupy production and mass appeal pop songs of the later records. Still, all interesting and great listens.

JEW’s lat album was 2010’s Invented. Last fall the band began work on their eighth record, Damage (might be the name of the single, its unclear to me).  Our first listen will happen near Record Store Day in April when they release it as a 7-inch single, backed with a cover of Pablo Honey-era Radiohead, “Stop Whispering.”
