MONDAY JUNE 08 2020 –I received word over the weekend from KDNK (Carbondale) that the show now airs Saturday and Sunday mornings at 5AM. See updated stations and times.
News is starting to come in about live in person music around the region. Conditions vary, but we are beginning to see some glimmers and pictures and testimony – expressing considerable pleasure and bands on stages.
FOCOMA (Fort Collins Musician Association) and ODell Brewing have teamed up with the Holiday Twin Drive-In Fort Collins for Drive and Jive – a weekly Tuesday night series showcasing some of Northern Colorado’s popular acts – including Bonnie & the Cyldes, Sugar Britches, The Beeves, Slow Caves, Cary Morin and Del Shamen featuring John Magnie and Steve Amadee from the Subdudes along with Nick Forster (E-Town) and Jock Bartley (Firefall).
Colorado Playlist sponsor, The Mishawaka, has reopened for food, music and movies – but in an extremely scaled down fashion. Currently, the “Mish” can only sit 96 across their property at any one time. Local duos, trios and the occasional band will appear on the outdoor stage. Reservations only. Please tip the musicians.
While some local restaurants are opening and offering live music in some form, bars, festivals and major events continue to either cancel or postpone. Among the latest to cancel is the Boulder County Fair. Chautauqua Boulder canceled the rest of their season as well.
At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music. Bohemian Foundation’s NoCo Music Relief Fund provides assistance for individuals in the Northern Colorado Music Community who are severely financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
