Ralphie’s Independence Day Blast announces next great band competition Get your applications in early0
Ralphie’s Independence Day Blast wants to give local bands a huge break at the biggest event of the summer. The annual 4th of July fireworks committee announced today that it will launch a YouTube band competition to choose this year’s opening act.
Bands can compete to entertain thousands of fans at the region’s best fireworks show. The contest is open to any band that performs an original song with a Boulder connection. The contest is open to all genres: rock, country, pop, hip-hop, rap or something new – just make sure it’s family friendly.
“Ralphie’s Independence Day is an iconic event in Boulder, and people love coming here to celebrate the 4th of July,” said Lew Kingdom of Wright Kingdom Real Estate, premier sponsor of the event. “This year we want to combine the biggest event of the summer with the ‘I Love Boulder’ campaign by inviting bands to join us in celebrating the cultural, traditional and happily unconventional characteristics of Boulder life. It’s an ideal theme for something we all love to attend.”
The winning band, or bands, will open the fireworks celebration to an estimated crowd of up to 40,000 people when the gates open. Runners up will see their music videos displayed on the Jumbo Tron at Folsom Field.
To enter, contestants must submit a YouTube video of the band performing its song. Tribute bands playing another artist’s song will not be considered. Bands will be evaluated for musical ability and style; bonus points may be given for creativity.
Video submissions will be judged based on quality, a “Boulder connection”, and the number of YouTube views by June 6, 2011. Obviously, self promotion to generate YouTube views is allowed. Multiple music video entries by the same artist are permitted. The Ralphie’s Independence Day committee will make the final selection of band(s).
Submissions are due no later than noon on June 1, 2011. Bands must grant written permission to play the video at Folsom Field, on Boulder municipal television stations, and event/sponsor websites as a requirement for submission.

Best Coast’s full-length debut – Crazy For You — was released yesterday, July 27, on the Mexican Summer label. Living up to the buzz and hype surrounding the band’s singles, the Los Angeles-based trio have indelibly left a sunny-warm, sticky-sweet mark on today’s music scene.
Singer/songwriter Bethany Cosentino (formerly of Pocahaunted) spends every second of the quick-hitter album (run time is just over 33 minutes) painting a portrait of stoned romanticism. Whether or not the lyrics are a derivative of the romance between Cosentino and surf punk rocker Nathan Williams (Wavves), the pure-heartedness and passion of a summer fling are laden in each track.
The first track, Boyfriend, encapsulates all the best qualities of Best Coast’s fuzzy, hazy brand of beach pop music. The desperation and hopeless longing that compose this song’s lyrics (and most of the album’s) harken back to the time of J. Frank Wilson and The Cavaliers (Last Kiss) when less-than-happy subject matter could still be incorporated in upbeat music.
Cosentino wears you down with her lyrics about young love and unrequited adoration, but the music remains poppy, optimistic and mostly enjoyable. It’s like one’s love for the beach and the ocean combining to overcome a hatred for sand. Realistically, the album’s short run time doesn’t afford the opportunity to tire of the straightforward and sappy lyrics.
If the duration of the album is a flaw, it’s also a strong suit. The repetitive lyrics and treble-heavy guitar can begin to blur and make songs indistinct from one another. Building upon the summer imagery, the album’s brevity is akin to getting out of the sun just in time to develop a tan and not a sunburn.
Nonetheless, Crazy For You is more than a seasonal novelty and will outlive the summer months. Best Coast are advancing a genre that’s attracting attention from the mainstreamers. With that said, this reviewer finds Boyfriend and the album’s bonus track, When I’m With You, to be the strongest and most likely candidates for repeated listening.
