Backyard Tire Fire Help Blow Out 7 Candles

Thanks to Backyard Tire Fire for helping WTMD celebrate birthday numero seven! The Illinois band rocked heavily with infectious tunes from their latest, Good to Be .

You can see why their crunchy, homespun tales play so well in Chicago and throughout the Midwest, as they did in Towson Saturday night. Thanks again guys!

And thanks also to Sandy Asirvatham and Nelson Emokpae for warming things up on the Recher Patio (even though it was a tad bit chilly outside) and to Caleb Stine continuing to support TMD!

Check out this video of Backyard Tire from the big night!

And most importantly, thanks to everyone who came out for the party! First Thursday is coming soon. Tyler will have the band lineup at noon today!

The Bridge Rock TMD's Lucky Seventh!

A million heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out to the Recher Saturday night to celebrate seven years of WTMD!

WTMD couldn't have come this far without your love of this one-of-a-kind music and support of the station's mission.

I really want to send out a special thank-you to The Bridge, for putting on a show, I know I'll never forget. (photo by Rich Barnstein)

It's no wonder they're now working with Steve Berlin! Like Los Lobos, The Bridge fire on all cylinders live, and there's really nothing like experiencing a band that you just KNOW is on the verge of something big. You can just feel the chemistry between Cris, Kenny, Dave, Patrick, Mike, and Mark when they play. And while there were plenty of improvisational moments Saturday night, the songs were performed flawlessly. Can't wait to hear more of that new tune, "Colorado Motel." And talk about a dream-jam, with the Bridge and Caleb Stine performing Paul Simon's "Gumboots?" Sweet soul music, guys. Thanks!

Good news! If you missed it, you can still catch it here. Enjoy!
