Friday Round Up: Music From Daydream Vacation and Head Like A Kite

We’re pretty excited to be en route to the Alpental at Snoqualmie Pass in Washington for Vertfest this weekend, so in order to keep our energy up and our toes tapping we’ve been rocking out to beats from Daydream Vacation and Head Like A Kite. The bands will be performing at Vertfest on Saturday. What’s better than ending a day of skiing with a beer and a dance party? That’s right. Nothing.

But even if you can’t join us for the festivities this weekend, you can still have a dance party… enjoy!

Happy Friday!

Rios Libres at Mountainfilm: Spoken Word + Multimedia Performance by Craig Childs, Timmy O’Neill + More!

At Mountainfilm? Don’t miss a very special performance tonight by Craig Childs, Timmy O’Neill and others in the Rios Libres crew.

This will be a powerful multi-media performance. Master wilderness story-teller Craig Childs, backed up by an all-star band consisting of the outlandish and legendary Timmy ONeill on drums and others, will be on stage giving the story behind the scenes for Power in the Pristine, taking you on a journey from ice cap to sea in Chilean Patagonia. This source to sea exploration will give the viewer a visceral sense of what it is like to travel on one of the most remote and beautiful free-flowing rivers in the world that is threatened by a mage-hydroelectric project.

Contest: Instead of driving I…

At Osprey headquarters in Cortez, CO we strive to reduce our carbon footprint as best we can. One easy way is to drive less. In rural Southwest Colorado, we really only have two options: carpooling in winter months and riding our bikes in the spring, summer and fall seasons. We do have a couple hardy souls that ride during the dead of winter!

We’re curious about our fans who live in urban areas. You have access to a variety of commuting options instead of driving. Light rail, buses, trains, walking, skateboarding, scooters, rollerblades, swimming… all provide alternatives to get to work, to the gym, to the coffee shop, to band practice, to the library. All without driving.

Begin your statement with: “Instead of driving, I…” We’ll pick the top 10 most creative statements and send you a pack of your choice from the Momentum, Metron, Flap, 24/7 or Resource Series. Your statement may even appear (anonymously) in a cool new video we are producing called, you guessed it: “Instead of Driving I…”

Contest ends Monday February 28, 2011. In the event that a requested product is not in stock, Osprey Packs, Inc. reserves the right to substitute a product of equal or greater value. Winners will be picked and notified on March 1, 2011.



Whether your pack was purchased in 1974 or yesterday, Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge.
