You all crushed last week’s Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM), with Christomo leading the pack for votes, and a high KEEP score. Two cuts this week… have fun.
Sometimes I’m lucky enough to be way out in front of a band’s digital release. The only way you’ll hear the new releases this week from Dragondeer, Andy Thomas’s Dust Heart, Todd Adelman & the Country Mile, and TMule is on terrestrial radio – see stations and times. Or maybe on Wednesday at the Colorado Sound All Colorado Music Meeting ….
GOAT ON THE TOWN
I know that’s some corny shit .. but what the hell.
Friday night my band and I played at the Tasty Weasel, the Oscar Blues brew pub in Longmont. New and upcoming modifications to the room promise to improve the overall sound quality of the room. They have expanded the room slightly, will be adding new sound panels and moving the “stage” area … all in all it will improve things significantly.
Saturday I spent the day MC’ing the Artist and Activist tent at the 4th Annual NoCO Hemp Expo. Dave Beegle was the featured guest soloist for a couple of singer songwriter / speakers, and he also performed himself. To say he’s an exceptional guitarist is a cliche at this point in his career. I was able to find out he’s almost done a new solo album, that’s more to his “world” influences. I should have a new track to share before too long .. maybe early May.
Sunday I made it over to the Colorado Blues Society IBC (Int’l Blues Challenge) Preliminaries in time to see the last two acts of the day, Fort Collins’ Rob Wilson Band and Maxwell Mud – who turned in a blistering set of electric blues rock and r&b, but did not manage to place for round 2. Jack Hadley and Mojomama will be taking their sets to Round 2. Fort Collins’ The Symbols took the “wild card” slot.
