Cougar music video to be filmed

OLYMPIA--There's a good opportunity for Washington State fans to become a part of Cougar football history this weekend. Filmmaker Jeff McQuarrie will be shooting a music video on Friday to be included in his soon-to-be-released documentary on WSU football, "Legends of the Palouse."

McQuarrie, a Cougar alum, will be filming one of the Northwest's hottest rock bands, PerfecTragedy—and their audience—in Olympia as they sing "Can't Beat the Cougars," during a 90-minute concert. And thanks to WSU coach Bill Doba, the band will be properly attired in Cougar jerseys.

Footage from the concert will appear in McQuarrie's much anticipated film on legendary Cougar moments and players, due to be released next fall. The filmmaker has interviewed and filmed a who's-who of Washington State football for his project.

The concert starts at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 13 at Mountain View Church of the Nazarene, 940 Israel Rd, Tumwater, WA 98501. A second show will be held on Saturday, 8:00 p.m., May 14 at First United Methodist Church of Olympia, 1224 Legion Wy SE, Olympia WA 98501. Tickets are $6 at the door, and PerfecTragedy is a Christian rock band, so you can bring the whole family.

To add to the WSU theme of the evening, Cougar mascot Butch will be in attendance signing autographs for the kids.
