MONDAY JULY 8, 2019 — Happy July 4th, belatedly of course. I hope you enjoyed your long weekend and got to take in some live music at one of the numerous festivals, municipal events and/or outdoor venues. I know the storms played havoc with several shows, including Leslie Tom‘s set at Greeley Stampede that unfortunately got rained out after only 30 minutes.
Leslie will be back headlining the Colorado Playlist presents show Well-O-Rama, Aug 17th in Wellington. I’ll be hosting this new annual event in Wellington, and will be appearing with my band, GOATZ! Also appearing will be the Devil’s Share, Sugar Britches, and Jackie & the Racket.
Wind Over the Earth is a recording studio in Longmont. On July 1 they began releasing an 18 song compilation benefiting the Longmont High School music program. The album features cuts from Foxfeather, Shanna in a Dress, Clandestine Amigo, Taylor Sims (Bonnie & the Clydes), Bridget Law (Elephant Revival) and Natalie Tate to name just a few. The full album will be released publicly on July 22. According to studio owner, Mark Venezia, the album will be made available for a donation to the Longmont High School music program.
New this week is the COLORADO PLAYLIST on Spotify. I’ve tried tying this to the weekly MMMM but it didn’t seem to work to attract regular weekly fans and listeners. This will be a permanent playlist on Spotify that I’ll update regularly with new releases and older “hits.” Enjoy

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
It’s been too many years, IMO, since the Reminders graced us with a new anthem. Dubbed as Colorado’s the 1st family of hip-hop, the Reminders are among the most enlightened and socially conscious bands in our scene, speaking to truth about not only about our homeland, but the plight of others around the globe.
