Much ado about a bunch of things
Boulder, Colorado: What can I say! A week and weekend filled with events, new ideas, benefit concerts and more.
This weekend watch for news about the sold-out 4-Mile benefit concert with local talent at Broomfield’s United Bank facilities. It appears to be well organized by AEG promotors of Denver and Boulder’s Community Foundation. Of the $60 ticket, $55 goes to the cause!
It’s not my ususal place but the Lucky Dog on Pearl Street was packed to watch the away Missouri vs CU-Boulder football game. Ohh! The French onion soup hit the spot on such a cold early October evening and the game was a winner for CU upsetting ol’ Missouri.
Here’s Great Harvest Bread Company’s prelude to Halloween. This large spider bread, designed by the company’s owner can be made with your favorite bread. Cute and funny. Scott said they are “wolf” spiders and very very time consuming to make!
Will this affect your arachnephobia?
mile high music festival
Aug. 13, 2010 predictably AWFUL ……….And it’s losing money again. Deservedly so. Old geezer Chuck Morris rolled out the same old formula bands. Dave Mathews is so 1990′s. Steve Miller band…..please. The Samples…terrible……..it’s amazing they could even walk on stage.
Crap. the whole festival is crap. No wonder no one went. They just don’t get it. It is hard enough to find any good original bands , so MHMF went for what is safe. Even KBCO which is not from Boulder anymore jumped on this pandemic. They’re coming to an end as is a pop radio.
Bertha Lynn at Channel 9 news could hardly keep a straight face whey MHMF said it was a great year. Bullshit.
The music industry reminds us of the American auto industry. Remember when the CEO’s of the big three went to testify before congress. They were smug and arrogant until the last. The music industry is lazy, uninformed and produces shit concerts and festivals whether it is MHMF or Red Rocks. They don’t pay attention to what we are interested in as a culture and as far as social media goes they are fucking retards. Someone had to say it.
