A seemingly innocuous day of sledding quickly turned serious when Big Sky youngster Elijah Brauer suffered a brain injury after hitting a tree. He was flown to Salt Lake for treatment, and is now back to his regular antics, but his parents want to spread the word that helmets really can save lives.

Helmets save lives

Elijah (Eli) Brauer just rode the tram and skied Liberty Bowl with his dad, Jeff. It’s an amazing feat for any seven-year-old. What makes it even more remarkable is that just three months ago young Eli was collapsed by a tree, virtually immobile and bleeding from his nostrils.

When asked, "What should we expect to hear or what should we be listening for?" Blackbird responded with one word: "Nothing." They said they wanted us to come in with an open mind and no expectations, like a child being exposed to something new – suddenly getting wide-eyed about experiencing something exciting for the first time.

The Fabview

There are two types of art that I love and appreciate the most: art that is fun and easy to enjoy, and art that really engages my mind and makes me think. The other night, Eighth Blackbird brought both of those together for me. The music was enjoyable to listen to and also made me wonder: What is music, and what is art?
