The Auburn University Marching Band Does Pregame

The Auburn University Marching Band, along with seven local high schools, performed at Band-O-Rama at Auburn High School last night. The high schools performed their halftime show, while the AUMB performed the traditional pregame show. Update: they also performed their Aerosmith-themed halftime show, which can also be viewed in the player.

Given that those traveling to Atlanta will be seeing this ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, I figured you’d want to see it to get your juices flowing. Ladies and gentlemen, the 2012 Auburn University Marching Band.

How is the Blogler not all over the greatest paragraph ever written in the New York Times?

“The first fan in line at L.S.U. was Tuck Freyer, a lawyer. He had claimed his spot around 8:30 a.m. His counterpart at Alabama, Bobby Hunter, a Walmart employee, arrived four days before the event to be first in line. Freyer said he was more interested in meeting Tigers players — including welcoming quarterback Rob Bolden, a recent transfer from Penn State — than Coach Les Miles, and the items he brought to have autographed were of the traditional sort: posters, footballs, etc. Hunter, on the other hand, sprinted directly to Saban once he and the other fans were allowed on the field after practice, handing over his Toshiba laptop for the coach to sign.”

To those of you who live near home and get to see this in person each week, I plead with you not to take it for granted. Just clicking play on this made me well up with emotion and tears because I miss Auburn that much. The same thing happened as soon as I stepped on campus when I attended the Florida game last season. I know that’s extreme to some, but to the many of us who understand what the school and community is truly about, you get it. I’m now stuck living 12 hours from the Plains and would give my left arm to get back. So when you’re in the stadium this fall listening this band, watching our team, or just tailgating with friends, remember what a privilege it is and enjoy every second.

As the creative force bneihd Nirvana, one need only look at Cobain’s early musical education to help classify the Nirvana sound. In short, Cobain the songwriter although a fan of Pop (Beatles, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Pixies, etc.) was musically educated in Olympia, WA. The Olympia scene that schooled Cobain was deeply immersed in experimentation and the hardcore scene aesthetic that views the Punk movement as a statement while viewing the Hardcore movement as a lifestyle. Therein lies the roots of the Nirvana sound: Cobain’s love of Beatlesque pop melodies, driven by classic rock riffs with a decidedly feminine, yet also punk, edge to them. Independent? Well, of course! Olympia is home to the progressive Evergreen State College and Calvin Johnson’s underground label, K Records. Cobain spent the Bleach years as well as the year leading up to Nevermind’s release, living in Olympia where his social circle and art influences were fiercely independent! Bands like Scratch Acid, Cat Butt, Melvins, Flipper, Bikini Kill, Beat Happening, Thrown Ups, The Fluid, Swallow and many, many others all had a profound affect on what would eventually become the Nirvana trademark style: the quiet/loud dynamics of his songs, the free form jamming and use of feedback in tune, an initial rejection of guitar solos and his incredible voice. People who compare Nirvana to Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Mudhoney (well, Mudhoney maybe) and the rest of the Seattle Sound superstars miss the point entirely. Nirvana has NOTHING in common with those bands. Nirvana are an Olympia band not a Seattle band. Anyone who tells you otherwise doesn’t know a damn thing about Nirvana or Kurt Cobain the artist and, by the way:Signing to a major label was always Kurt’s goal. He was moving too fast to be signed by K records anyway. And Calvin would never have signed Nirvana because they weren’t experimental ENOUGH! Kurt was only conflicted about the major label deal because of his Olympia bred, underground, experimental, non-commercial, do-it-yourself punk rock upbringing. Those were the ethics Olympia instilled in him and, I believe, a major contributer to his frustrations with superstardom.
