Tres Mts in Seattle (3/16)

17th Mar 11 (Thu) Leave a comment

So, I got stranded in Eugene, and wasn’t able to go up and shoot the debut Tres Mts show at the Showbox at the Market in Seattle… :(

Well, “Iron Mike” Savoia took some great photos… check them out at his Facebook page… dUg Pinnick (King’s X), Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam), Richard Stuverud (The Fastbacks), and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam)… Savoia Digital Photography does amazing work!

Also, check out Jason Tang Photography, too…

While I missed this great show, I was able to hit the excellent Punch Brothers (with Chris Thile) at McDonald Theatre that night.  My review with photos will be posted this weekend.

4th Mar 11 (Fri) Leave a comment

From Blabbermouth… in the realm of “when does dUg take time off?“…

dUg Pinnick of King’s X laid down guest vocals on the Al Shire & the Henchmen‘s song “Know Your Lie” from the new record, Fate Out of Tragedy, due out later this month.  Al Shire is the guitar tech for King’s X’s Ty Tabor.

In related news, dUg will join Pearl Jam‘s Jeff Ament and Mike McCready on the debut Tres Mountains tour (I’m hitting the Seattle date).  Read more about that tour and new album HERE.

Tres Mountains (King’s X’s dUg Pinnick & Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament)

A new “super group” of dUg Pinnick from King’s X, Richard Stuverud of the Fastbacks, and Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam has a name and an album coming out and a selective tour in March 2011.

Tres Mountains (aka Tres Mts.)

Go to http://tresmts.com/, sign up for their newsletter, and get a free download of “My Baby.”  The debut album Three Mountains comes out in March 15th, 2011 (CD, LP, digital).  Update 2/3: I just got my ticket for the Seattle show at the Shoebox (3/16).  Apparently Mike McCready (also from Pearl Jam) is playing with them. Woot!

Update 3/8: get the record digitally here:

I’m hoping good things from this group.  I tend to really dig bands and side-projects where dUg gets involved.  The first track “My Baby” needs a bit warming up for me, but I dig the vibe.

Friend them on the Facebox:
