Thursday morning on "The Big Show" we will be giving away FREE VIP tickets to this weekend's third Annual Chinook Music Festival.
We'll also spin a new track from Rust On The Rails -- a collaboration of Yakima's own Cody Beebee and the Crooks, Australian guitar ninja Blake Noble and virtuoso Tim Snider.

Chinook Fest is a weekend-long outdoor music festival that takes place in Jim (*pause*) Sprick Community Park in the beautiful Nile Valley on the banks of the American River.

Camping, food and beverage from area breweries and wineries and TONS of tremendously talented musicians from the Northwest will converge with hundreds of concert-goers for a weekend of musical community with NO FRIGGIN' CELLPHONE SERVICE!
