Being for the Benefit
While no one is playing for the benefit of Mr. Kite this week (that we know of), there are a number of SpokesBUZZ bands performing at fundraisers and other cause-related concerts. Such as:
- The Burroughs will play two sets at a fundraiser for … SpokesBUZZ! on Friday 8/28 at the Fort Collins Country Club, with doors opening at 6p. This is our big annual benefit event and we hope to see you there for food, fun, friends and a bit of a SpokesBATTLE (our first-ever music trivia competition).
- Speaking of friends, Post Paradise will play Saturday 8/29 at the Garden a’Fare beer tour, a fundraiser for the Friends of the Gardens on Spring Creek. The event features six food-tasting/Odell Brewing beer pairing stations within the garden grounds. Cello, fresh seasonal produce!
- Meanwhile, Pandas & People also take the stage Saturday amidst a bountiful harvest for Vines and Hops at Jessup Farm, benefitting Adopt Colorado Kids’ Dream Maker project.
- Gasoline Lollipops join the Saturday performers at the annual NedFest music and arts festival in Nederland, with festival profits directed to Peak to Peak Music Education Association, providing music resources for mountain kids … another fine (and fun!) philanthropic undertaking.
It’s #BandSwap at BandSmash as our buddies The LoLos (from Chico, California) take the stage in support of the Loveland Mountain View Rotary Club “Heroes Among Us” scholarship fund.<< THIS JUST IN: THIS SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED — more details to come on new date as they are made available.
Of course, several less-cause-related-but-still-cool events are happening throughout the week as well, including:
- In the land of college-town cavorting, Matt Mahern takes the stage to open for Lee Brice on campus for RamFest 2015 at CSU on Friday 8/28, while the annual Block Party in Greeley features Post Paradise and Slow Caves on Friday night as well.
- The Breckenridge Beer Festival brings Musketeer Gripweed to town on Saturday, 8/29.
- Grant Farm plays PalletFest on Sunday 8/30 in the Sculpture Garden at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
- And to top off the weekend in Boulder, American Blackout opens for H.O.S.S. and Dirty Rotten Imbeciles at the Fox Theatre on Sunday night.
