MONDAY Aug 30 2021 – I put the mask back on. It’s a reminder that COVID is not over with us. #COMUSIC – support.

It shouldn’t come as any surprise by now that Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats would debut at #1 with a new single, Survivor, in its first week out in advance of the the November release of their new album “The Future.” It also debuts at #5 in the August monthly TOP 30 due out in a couple of days. Don’t expect to see that album fall out of the top spot running into 2022.

CP S15:EP32 2021

MONDAY Aug 09 2021 – This show is produced every Wednesday and broadcast every Saturday through the following Friday. I say that because Bohemian Light Music Festival announced it was canceled on Friday Aug 6, two days AFTER the show was produced and the day BEFORE it began airing statewide.

I asked a major talent agency booking agent friend of mine if he was seeing any other “closures” or cancellations around the region. He said, “I’ve just heard of a couple of smaller things in the Northeast pulling the plug last week. It feels like Groundhog Day all over again.” On the heels of that statement, the New Orleans Jazz Fest announced it was canceled.

Colorado’s Z2 Entertainment has announced it is requiring a vaccination card and/or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of attending shows at the Boulder Theater, the Fox Theater and the Aggie Theater (Fort Collins). Expect other venues to follow their lead.
