Locally owned and operated regional music publication Marquee Magazine is celebrating 15 Years in print.
I can say that over the past fifteen years it has been a “bible” for me as I search out what my friends in Colorado music are listening to and going to see. Congratulations to Brian and Jessica Johnson and Senior Contributing Writer Tim Dwenger.
From their website: “The Marquee strives to be the Farmer’s Almanac of the regional music scene — providing readers with facts, tid-bits, in-depth feature stories and a Calendar section that is unparalleled on Colorado’s Front Range, covering every live music venue from large venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre to small clubs and coffee shops. Get in Touch…”
Hellova run you guys. Much love.
News about a couple of regional record stores broke over the past week: Absolute Vinyl Records & Stereo in Boulder is closing its doors at the end of March, after almost a decade selling “…close to 100,000 records and well over 2,000 pieces of stereo equipment,” according to Doug Gaddy, who co-owns the shop with his wife Annie.
Recydled Records LP in Longmont has moved from its former location at 3rd and Main in downtown Longmont, to a larger place on the west side of the city on S. Hover.
