Next week will be a phenomenal musical week along the Front Range. There are two awesome festivals in Northern Colorado next weekend, New West Fest in Fort Collins and the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest in Lyons. The Bohemian Nights Foundation provides the music for the New West Fest which includes Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo and War, as well as dozens of Colorado acts on several stages for FREE!!!! The Rocky Mountain Folks Fest takes place at the recently renewed Planet Bluegrass grounds in Lyons and will present a diverse line-up with Brandi Carlile, Randy Newman, Lake Street Dive, Dispatch, Ani DiFranco and more…, all for a rather reasonable fee. Asside from the two festivals, there is also great live music to hear at Red Rocks, Chataqua Auditorium, eTown Hall, Aggie Theatre, Hodi’s Half Note, Quixote’s True Blue, The Fox Theatre and more. The weather is great, school is just around the corner, so get out and hear some of the great music there is to offer along the Front Range!! That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!
HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
