Blitzen Trapper grab influences from The Grateful Dead, Olivia Tremor Control, and Frank Zappa while playing in a scene that spawned The Decemberists, The Shins, and Elliott Smith. Their third self-released album, "Wild Mountain Nation" was released in 2007.

Songs performed: "Jericho," "Murder Babe," "Shoulder Full of You," "Love You," and "Wild Mountain Nation."
