Which city really has more places to play? Austin, Denver, or Nashville? Well, if it’s between Denver and Austin – Denver wins hands down … check out this great article in Westword with Gov. Hickenlooper Interview: Governor Hickenlooper on why (and how) he wants to support Colorado music
UPDATE on Johnny O. See pics here. Much love was shared – much music played – much money raised. From what I can see online, it looks like our brothers and sisters in the scene managed to raise somewhere around 5g for Johnny’s medical care, and loss of income while recovering. Much love to all our friends who contributed, and to Johnny O.
