The AIrborne Toxic Event in 3 Words

By Glen

A few weeks ago, we announced a special project to mark the first birthday of This Is Nowhere: The Airborne Toxic Event for You in 3 Words. All TATE fans were invited to celebrate with us by sharing just three words that sum up what the band means to them.

As an added incentive, we’re giving away a This Is Nowhere mug, featuring the photography of Ryan Macchione, to one of the 37 people who played along. We’ll announce the winner below. Before we get to that, enjoy the diversity of adjectives that fans (and, in some cases, their bemused family members) have applied to a musical group that defies pigeonholing.


Angela D.B.:



Jamie E.:





Alena: Acute. Cathartic. Energetic.

Angela B.: Escaping our midnights

Angela: Touches my soul!

Anna: Souls stay airborne

Christina: Cool Hot Love

Cinthia: Beautiful. Tragic. Timeless.

Dave: Incredible, cathartic experience.

Debbie: Feelings Given Life

Diana: Music mind vault.

Jamie N.: Silver Lake party

Jana: Transcendent. Blissful. Exhilarating.

Jennifer: Saved. My. Life.

Julie: soul’s poetic solace

Keith: Like Family, Man

Mike: Talented. Passionate. Approachable.

M.T.: like a PUNCH

Rob: Everything, everything, everything.

Samuel: Living Without Time

Sue: Succinct. Extant. Inoculate.

Susan P.: Work for it.

Susan S.: In the gut.

Trevor: Everything Everything Everything.

Wendy: Transformed my life

Zach: Saviors of Music

This Is Nowhere MugAnd the Winner is…

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Participants received two draw entries for a video submission, and one entry for a text submission.

The winner of an exclusive This Is Nowhere mug is… Keith Thompson!

Congratulations Keith. Thank you to all who entered, and to all who have read along with us in our first year!

Glen, Fan of The Airborne Toxic Event Glen is the founder and editor of This Is Nowhere. He’s grateful for an understanding wife and kids who indulge his silly compulsion to chase a band all over the Pacific Northwest (and occasionally beyond) every time the opportunity arises.

  1. WoW! I would like to thank my family and loving wife who made all this possible, the man above for looking down on me, my manager, who I haven’t got yet, but will no doubt need following this success and finally TATE who are like an extended family to all of us.
    To Glen & Ryan, a big Ta for my first and probably only family heirloom.
