Did anyone notice, or, rather not notice, the local media coverage of the Feb. 12 BUHS District #6 Annual Meeting? By the way this is a meeting of all the voters in the 5 towns making up the district, something like 16,000 voters or so, typically attended by 1% of them or fewer.
WTSA mentioned it next day, but they have an inside track: The Moderator of the meeting is Tim Johnson of WTSA, using the personna of his real name as a Vernon resident. I don’t know if The Commons covered it? Their deadline wouldn’t have worked for the issue that came out on Weds. 13th, & I haven’t yet seen this week’s issue. Even iBrattleboro missed it.
5:45 Live recaps the Harris Hill and Bratt Figure Skating Club Ice Show highlights, on an edition that includes all the latest Selectboard drama, the Northern Roots performance at McNeill’s, and a webcast interview with Rep. Dick Marek about the House’s new drug laws.

On Thursday night at 7PM, Next Stage Arts presents the third film in its “Reeling in American Music” series with a special screening of Martin Scorsese’s seminal concert film “The Last Waltz” featuring The Band in their final performance on Thanksgiving night, 1976. Filmed at San Francisco’s Winterland Theater, the movie captures the sound and spirit that propelled this group of musicians in their 16 years on the road, most notably as Bob Dylan’s backup band.
“The Last Waltz” was filmed by director Martin Scorsese in 35MM format, and is considered by many to be the definitive rock performance film due to the richness of the cinematography, the quality of the sound, and the nature of the performances captured in the film.
What all mammalian animals have in common is that they share the workings of a spinal column topped by a brainstem. Fundamentally, these are essentially the same in all of us animals. The brainstem contains the pathways to where all brain activity passes through to the rest of the body and is structurally connected to and a continuation of the spinal column.
Tritium Well makes its debut in Brattleboro this Saturday night, 2-23-13. Rocking and irradiating the Northeast Kingdom since 2010, the five piece band joins Gangly Heart and The Diamondstones for a Power Shift dance party thrown by the SAGE Alliance, at the Stone Church from 7-11pm.

To make up for last week, and only a day late at that, I opted for a more straight-ahead rock show from now veteran Modest Mouse, performed in 2010. YouTube commenters seem to have decided that the venue was in Sioux Falls, SD. I’ve been a fan of Modest Mouse for most of the last decade, having originally fallen for Moon Over Antarctica. One of the best songs on that record, Third Planet, is included on the playlist along with a host of other tunes from throughout their career.
Warning: There are a few swears.
