Xcorps Action Sports TV #48.) ROAD TOUR seg.5 HD - Rolling into a new TV season team X launches a fresh wave of assaults upon the lame and mundane by shooting a massive coast to coast Road-Tour stretching from Boston to San Diego!
The show opens up with host Jason Lazo standing in the New Jersey surf after flying in from San Diego California to visit RIVE- the source of many of the music videos that appear on the show. Jason hangs at a local skate park in Long Branch N.J. and talks with RIVE owner John Warden and producer Nick Paolise who talk about what exactly RIVE does for musicians and bands.
After that the pedal hits the metal with Jason jumping on U.S. interstate 80 west. Nice high speed road shots here rolling to a brand new video from an alt pop band from Denmark-The Asteroids Galaxy- Tour presented by Girly Action.
Pretty fun way to roll the highway with this band in the stereo!
Jason pushes the car all night stopping at 6:30 am on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River between Illinois and Iowa for a report to the camera. After another fill-up the miles keep rolling by cut to a video from keyboard talent Aaron Barnhart doing his song Day in Day Out. Lots of farm scenes here of mid America looking summer green and then onward to the Wyoming border!
Jason exits on the next segment for a little break on his trans-continental drive at the highest point on U.S.80- also known as the Lincoln Highway-Americas first cross country highway. The air is a bit thin here at 8,640 feet. A freaky animated video from the band A Lull doing their song Skinny Fingers rolls with big sky scenes here of the Wyoming landscape.
Jason talks about the journey as the miles roll on then decides to exit the big road to head south on U.S. highway 530 for a closer look at the super scenic Flaming Gorge National Park. Great shots here and what kind of animal was that? It seems like the Xcorps host-reporter was the only one on the road following the Green river and finding a camping spot near the town of Red Canyon. Check out what he does NOT have for dinner!
Segment 5 of this cross country journey opens up the next morning with more rainbow colored mountains and close ups of wildlife with Jason throwing out some geological thoughts. Etheral tunes by David Huber backs his informative rap.
The show closes out with scenes from part-2 of the Xcorps ROAD TOUR show where the action really starts rolling in Idaho with mountain biking and hot air ballooning at the Grand Targhee resort, BASE jumping off the Perrine bridge and jet-boating the Snake river through Hells Canyon. As they say in these parts-this aint no show for lilies!
