The Yukon–Kuskokwim Delta is a river delta located where the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers empty into the Bering Sea on the west coast of the U. S. state of Alaska. At 129,500 square kilometers in size, it is one of the largest deltas in the world, it is larger than the Mississippi River Delta, comparable in size to the entire U. S. state of Louisiana. The delta, which consists of tundra, is protected as part of the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge; the delta has 25,000 residents. 85 % of these are Alaska Natives: Athabaskan Indians. The main population center and service hub is the city of Bethel, with an estimated population of around 6,219. Bethel is surrounded by 49 smaller villages, with the largest villages consisting of over 1,000 people. Most residents live a traditional subsistence lifestyle of hunting and gathering. More than 30 percent have cash incomes well below the federal poverty threshold; the area has no roads. Bethel is the location of the Yukon Kuskokwim Correctional Center.

The Down Town

"The Down Town" is a song by Days of the New and the second single from their self-titled debut album. Like its predecessor, the song reached #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1998 and is a concert staple. "The Down Town" is the third track on the band's Definitive Collection released in 2008. The song is arguably the second most popular single from the band's debut album and one of their best known songs overall, it is one of the album's upbeat tracks while bearing an aggressive chorus. Lyrically, "The Down Town" ambiguously details a town of drug users who are afraid of change and suppressive of the narrator; the phrase "to bring me down" is rebelliously shouted throughout the chorus. A mention of pointless and rejected concern over another person's well being is addressed during the bridge. Given this theme of negativity, the "Down Town" song title may be intended as a double entendre or pun; the "Down Town" video, directed by Lance Bangs, consists of a live concert performance. It includes some notable differences from the studio recording.

The performance lasts nearly a whole minute longer at 5:10. "The Down Town" "The Down Town" "Touch, Peel And Stand" "Freak"The live tracks were recorded at the New World Music Theatre for Rock 103.5 Chicago's Rockstock'97 on September 6, 1997. "The Down Town" Music Video @ YouTube
