Happy Labor Day Weekend … No rest for me however. It’s a pretty busy week here at the Goat’s office.
New music shares this week from Lara Ruggles, Strange Americans, and Chimney Choir. I got a new compilation in this week that actually came out in 2008 on Gear Fab Publishing out of Denver, that I never knew existed. I’m excited to start playing some cuts I didn’t already have from the 60’s Greeley band The Monocles who became The Higher Elevation. Very psychedelic stuff …
Besides spinning records and telling the story about our local scene on the radio, I really enjoy introducing new bands to my friends live and upfront – it’s what makes my summers such a happy time for me. My plan is to do a series of shows over the fall, winter, spring seasons where I get to team up with some of my favorite bands in the region … so I’ve stepped out and invited a few to the party. This coming week marks the beginning… You can keep up on the events page here.
Thursday night Sept 10 THE COLORADO SOUND PRESENTS one of the region’s top touring Americana/trucker-honky-tonk country bands – Jimbo Darville & the Truckadours with rising new Americana-folk singer/songwriter Daniella Katzir at the Walnut Room in Denver.
Sunday Sept 13 THE COLORADO SOUND PRESENTS one of the hottest and most talked about roots rock bands in the region – Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene at Avogadro’s in Fort Collins. And yes, I know it’s opening weekend … LOL. #footballgeeksrule
The Walnut Room holds a little over 100 people. Avogadro’s a bit more than 150 on the inside I believe and more outside. Both have excellent food options. Great small rooms, both of them. As with all of these shows, I intend to perform in support with my band Goatz!
