Good Monday morning! The Broncos won in a WILD fashion, and the sun is shining. And in this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) we have music to KEEP or DELETE from new scene honky-tonkers 5 & Dimer’s, indie-alt rock from Homebody, award winning r&b/dance from SuCh and blues from the Catfish Kray Band with Lady Larea Edwards.
Last week’s titles didn’t generate much in the way of interest it seems – with one of the lowest overall vote totals of the past couple of months. I don’t know if we were all just burnt out from the elections or not, but I’m hoping you decide to re-engage this week. With that said, Faceman’s new single Heavy Heart was the crowd favorite generating 92% KEEP IT votes … the rest barely got out of the gate last week.
Dave Herrera was MIA last week. So no Trusted Ear Scene Report … follow Dave at www.thetrustedear.com
IN COLORADO MUSIC HISTORY
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK – Prairie Scholars – Minivan …Prairie Scholars are Andy and Jess Eppler – a husband and wife team from Longmont by way of the same Texas school that gave us Bonnie & Taylor Sims of Bonnie & the Clydes fame regionally. Several regional acts have covered songs written by Andy and Jess. This one was written as part of a crowd funding campaign for a touring minivan.
CAN you believe this funky little brewpub is ready to celebrate 14 years of Dale’s Pale Ale in a can? Lyons, CO, the birthplace of the CANNED BEER APOCALYPSE is celebrating our against-the-grain history and small town vibe that has grown nationwide the only way we know how – with Lyons brewed specialty beers, our Cajun inspired food, and locally grown music.
Come out on November 19th to celebrate our canning roots with live music from our own “Interstate Stash Express” and Colorado grown, national touring act “In the Whale”. If the downstairs live music ain’t your jam, stop in for our signature Silent Disco upstairs along with smokin’ food and special beer releases.
Our Lyons brew crew have teamed up with Interstate Stash Express to roll out a new specialty beer, Interstate “Smash” (Single Malt And Single Hop) Express, for the party. Naturally, all your favorite beers will be flowing in force back where it all began, at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons. Yer not going to want to miss a moment of this one, and tickets are limited – here are the deets:
Silent Disco all night long starting at 7:30PM
Interstate Stash Express: 8:30PM
In the Whale: 10:00PM
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.
