Me: wanna go see a show?
She: no, you like local bands.
Me: ??? “local bands?”
She: yeah, you know … I want to see something better than that.
Me: Ok, that’s cool.
Many people have a misconception about local bands. SOME people think that local equates to they’re not very good because they’re not national.
Me: Wanna go see Gregory Alan Isakov and Ani DeFranco?
She” oh HELL YES! I love his music.
Me: he’s a local artist.
She: he is??? I had no idea.
Me: yeah, he is … <smh>
Gregory’s appearance on September 4th capped the first time in Colorado music history that 10 Colorado (read: local) acts headlined Red Rocks. And that doesn’t count the support acts, or acts like Greensky Bluegrass (two members live in Fort Collins).
The next time someone says no to a “local” band, let them know it may be the last time they get to say “I saw them when they were just a local band.” 😉
Four tracks make this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting): Eros and the Eschaton “Helicopter,” Chella & The Charm “Queen City of the Plains,” Slim Cessna’s Auto Club “Commandment 3,” and Elephant Revival “Raindrops.” You can let me know which of these I should keep in the playlist below.
I have T-SHIRTS — LIMITED EDITION (only 35) 10th Anniversary “Colorado Playlist” … $15 includes shipping. Order by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org .. I accept PAYPAL only. Please state size and mailing address when ordering.
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation. I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.
In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.
It’s not a competition. It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week. You can select as many as you think I should keep in the “playlist.”
