Trampled by Turtles – “Alone”

The new Trampled by Turtles video premiered on the Country Music Channel. This was really a pleasure to see, both as a Duluthophile and a music lover. Our boys just keep getting bigger (and better). “World Premiere” music videos surely don’t have the same appointment television mystique that they did back in the early 80s on MTV, but still. This is cool.

Dave Simonett’s MN tattoo and various Duluth scenes and landscapes all have uncredited cameos. Feel free to do the “Where in Duluth?” game on them. I could only figure out a couple on my own.

A Prairie Home Companion in Duluth

Here’s the complete broadcast from Feb. 25 at the DECC Symphony Hall, featuring the Grand Rapids High School Jazz Ensemble and Trampled by Turtles.

Trampled by Turtles and Prairie Home

Remember when I suggested we do what we can to get Trampled by Turtles on the upcoming A Prairie Home Companion show in Duluth? Well, we did it. Check out PHC Facebook page.

Trampled by Turtles – “Where is My Mind”

Produced by Justin Gustavison and edited by Angel Gustavison.

Let’s Get TBT on Prairie Home

OK first, this is a first. Me writing to suggest we organize an effort to get someone on the stage of A Prairie Home Companion when the show comes to Duluth in February. It’s not quite like calling a local radio station to request a song, but not all that far off either.

It reminds me of the time I called Sirius XM ’60s on 6 host Phlash Phelps when Duluth was the mystery city of the day. I actually sent him about a dozen quick facts which he used throughout the morning. Patty was not amused.

I like Trampled by Turtles (listening now while I pour through data for a report) and believe they’d be a natural for the PHC audience. So, I’ve posted on the PHC Facebook page suggesting they contact the group to see if they’re available. Maybe you’ll consider a similar post.

Trampled by Turtles – “Victory”

TBT Playing Coachella

Looks like 2011 is going to be another great year for Duluth bluegrass-rockers Trampled by Turtles as they join the lineup for this year’s Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California.

Trampled by Turtles on MTV?

It just might happen if the band gets enough votes in MTV’s online contest.

I just love seeing that iconic MTV logo up in the corner, makes me smile, but then again I’m a child of the 1980s and maybe it means something different to me than others.

Did you see TBT on the PlayList on PBS?

Karen Sunderman has a new show on PBS named The PlayList that debuted last night featuring Trampled by Turtles.  Here is a link to an interview and more information.

They have many more shows coming up with bands like Cars & Trucks and other local artists appearing on the premiere episode on April 1 @ 9PM.  That is also when it begins its regular run, but last night was a preview of what is ahead. It is really great that we now have a television program covering the arts of the Northland. If you have a story idea, want to learn more or are an artist contact them through their site at
