CP S15:EP29 2021

MONDAY JULY 19 – I needed to wait until this morning for the official announcement for Bohemian Light Music Festival (formerly Bohemian Nights at New West Fest), the first of the three major Colorado-centric music events held over the summer.

This year’s event will be a smaller version of previous festivals, held over two days – Aug 14/15 – instead of three. Of course, it also means fewer acts than in past years: I count 45, down from what is normally about 70-75. Bohemian put together their own ’21 Bohemian Light Music Festival playlist.

Last week, the UMS announced its own scaled down lineup for Aug 27-29. I lost count of Colorado acts when I got over 95, a pretty hefty representation. Check out seventy-five of my favorites for the UMS on Spotify.

Adiel Mitchell, Heavy Diamond Ring, Kiltro, Los Mocochetes, The Milk Blossoms, The Still Tide, The Velveteers and Wildermiss are among the acts performing at both Bohemian Light and the UMS.

The annual Westword Music Showcase has moved to two days, Sept 17-18. Westword has not yet announced its Colorado lineup.

I’ll be featuring acts appearing at these events over the next several weeks.

CP S15 EP23 2021

Monday June 7, 2021 — WOW … what a weekend! Lightning, not COVID, was the reason for some outdoor shows being delayed or postponed. FLOBOTS show at Levitt Pavilion was one that had to pushed back to July 2 because of severe lighting in Denver, while the Greeley Blues Jam kicked off the summer season with Friday Fest featuring some of the best of Colorado’s blues artists and bands. Kudos to everyone for a great weekend to kick off the summer season.

NEW MUSIC COMING from Chris Daniels with Hazel Miller, Dressy Bessy and Nathaniel Rateliff so be listening to the show in the coming week or two for those and others.
