Dinosaur Jr., Morphine, L7 Set To Play Board Event

March 6 [12:00 EST] -- Dinosaur Jr., Morphine, and L7 will be among the bands turning up at UnVailed 1997, a three-day concert/snowboarding festival set for March 27-29 in Vail, Colorado.

The event, dubbed The Ultimate Band and Board Event and sponsored by Sam Goody, will also feature sets from the Bloodhound Gang, Leah Andrione, and Rusted Root as well as top snowboarders from across the country squaring off in a peer-judged competition.

The weekend event will also showcase four unsigned bands who beat out some 650 other acts for a shot at much-vaunted exposure.

Among its many other UnVailed related projects will be a compilation CD featuring tracks from five of the festival's headliners, as well as additional material from bands that will not appear on the bill. The CD will run you $5.99 and is available at any of Sam Goody's 777 stores or at any On Cue location.

Sales of the CD will benefit the Snowboard Outreach Society which helps at-risk youth.
