So I did not make it out to see any live music this weekend. Instead, a friend of mine and I found a lovely out of the way, small town diner to have brunch at – and the green chili was to die for. I was planning on seeing a show Saturday night but wound up having dinner at a friend’s house.
I emcee’d the Earth Day celebration in Fort Collins on Saturday, and did manage to catch the Waido Experience, and Matthew Mahern – aka P-Man. Matt will be performing with four acts at this year’s FOCOMX this coming weekend. I hadn’t seen Michael Waido and his guys for 8 years, as we all went in life directions – Waido with kids now .. that sort of things. So it was nice to catch up. Anyone who knows P-Man already knows he’s a staple of the Fort Collins scene.
I was not able to secure embeds for two of this week’s MMMM entries – the new single from Andy Palmer, and the new Head for the Hills, which drops May 12. That said, there are some tasty nuggets this week from Tennis, Debajo del Agua, Analog Son with Devon Parker, and shark dreams.
Support for the Colorado Playlist comes courtesy of The Historic Mishawaka Amphitheatre — Celebrating over 100 yrs of music and dancing in the Poudre Canyon.
