The Alaskan Times

Posted on February 12, 2008

This past Friday night, 36 Crazyfists lived a night of rock stars. Friday, Feb 27th was their homecoming show, a bit of a pre-release show, in Alaska. A sold out show, played to a packed house at the nearly 3,000 person capacity Egan Civic Center. “Literally, the best show of our lives,” tells guitarist Steve Holt. The band arrived in the homeland of Alaska on Wednesday night, where they checked into the Hilton (suites, no less, they get the treatment in Alaska), and was then whisked away to the famous Chilkoot’s. Huh? Chilkoot Charlies is the apparent-world-famous Alaskan bar that ranked 4th on Playboy’s list of top party places in the US. True. And no, the band did not meet Jessica Hahn that night. After Thursday – a day partying with friends, an in-store, and the obligatory trip to a strip club – came Friday (of course), the day of the show. “The line outside was fuckin’ amazing, (it) wrapped around several blocks,” exclaims Holt. As for 36 CF’s set, they played their longest set to date, 16 songs in an hour and fifteen minutes. A set that was opened AND closed with “Waterhaul,” a track off the upcoming A Snow Capped Romance CD. “(‘Waterhaul’ is) heavy ass shit. We split it evenly, open with the first half of the song and close with the second half.” The band arrived back in Portland on Monday night, where they are now looking to nail down upcoming touring. Hopefully will have word by as soon as the end of the week. In the meantime, to hear “Waterhaul” and all the other tracks from 36 CF’s upcoming release, check out www.36crazyfists.com/ecard. New video for “At The End Of August” should be online come Friday. And we’d like to give a shout out to www.eastcoastromper.com, currently featuring 36 CF as their band of the month. 36 Crazyfists A Snow Capped Romance in stores March 15th
