This was a show unlike most others at Crystola and in the Springs in general. Michael Reese was nominated as "Best Guitarist of the Year" at the prestigious Los Angeles Music Awards for his work on his first solo CD, "Dragonflyer." and the friends, Kim Stone - monster bass player once part of power house Rippingtons and Spyro Gyra, Larry Thompson - one of Colorado's most accomplished performing and recording artists and former house drummer for Colorado's Caribou Ranch, and Jimmy Lange long time area keyboards wizard played for a small but appreciative crowd. The jams and solos on classic Allman Bros music and Michaels own tunes were amazing! DO NOT miss Michael wherever he plays, the friends are always around too. Next Space Jam is at Kinfolks Oct 13, 2012.

The Led Zeppelin Rock Symphony was a great idea and a wonderful concert. Some of the songs were: Good Times Bad Times, Dancin' Days, Kashmir, The Rain Song, The Ocean, Since I've Been Loving You, Going to California, Moby Dick, Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love, and Stairway to Heaven. Does anybody remember any others?
UPDATE! Please note that Public Free Day ends at 5pm today!
Love the B-52's and went to the concert tonight.
The B-52's were spot on tonight, loved them, but the experience was crap.
Sound system was so loud it was painful to the point of wincing, and we winced so many times that we only stayed about six songs before having to kiss it goodbye. We grew up on Rock and Roll, like it loud, but the system tonight was dreadful. Not sure who controlled the volume and sound board but they blew it terribly. Distorted. Garbled. Painfully loud.
TSO at World Arena was LOUD and left our ears ringing, but tonights show was a whole other scale of loud.
Chris Isaak at PPC was excellent, loud, but enjoyable, could understand the words, etc. Great show.
So meh, we left, and won't go to any more if this is the best that PPC can do for us....
This is a wonderful tour but it is NOT at the address above. It is located at the corner of Uintah St. and Glen Avenue downtown.

We saw them last Saturday, Sep. 8th, 2012...excellent! Jason, the bass player, is world-class. The singer was great, too, and the guitar player was up to the task.
There's actually no cover for this show.
OPENING SEPTEMBER 14:
God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza
Dinner With Friends meets Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf as the thin veneer of civility gives way to knock-down-drag-out hostility in this comedy of manners by celebrated modern playwright Yasmina Reza. Pretenses topple and illusions dissolve, helped along by some unpalatable truths washed down with a liberal helping of rum. Don’t miss our all-star cast in this 2009 Tony Award winner!

Hi, Jimmy Descant, the Rocketman here! www.deluxerocketships.com I will be showing my Crutches and severe assemblages at Smokebrush Marmalade Gallery, 219 Colorado Ave. under the bridge, opening Fri. I will also do an instant art performance assemblage piece onstage with local blues great Grant Sabin. There will be filming and projections going on as well. See my site for other past live events.
Poetry 719 and their event "Hear Here" is a brilliant sythesis of diversity and endless amounts of talent. The event welcomes anyone from any different background and allows them to express themselves in whichever way they choose into an audience of understanding eyes and open ears. The family-like atmosphere which holds no discrimination and welcomes all is complemented beautifully by the environment. The Movement Arts Community Studio is a spacious venue fully equipped with large west-facing windows so that the nostalgia of Colorado sunsets over the Rocky Mountains floods in and lights up the whole room. Hear Here and the diversity of the members brings about a copius influx of talent to the Colorado Springs community. Artists, Poets, Singers, Musicians, and the like attend Hear Here and unleash their talent in the finest and purest forms that is never in ill-taste. This is an event for any and all people, and it should be known that, whether one wants to speak or be spoken to, the community and Hear Here will welcome you with open hearts.
Pleasant atmosphere...Such a joy to have this in OUR community...Feeds all you SENSES :)
Hear Here is by far the most diverse, loving, tight knit community event I have ever experienced. Everyone is welcomed with open ears and encouragement. The featured poets are world renowned career poets who actively integrate themselves into this easy going atmosphere. There has not been a single time I've walked away without wishing it had gone on longer. If you are thinking of trying a poetry reading out, make this one your first priority. You won't be disappointed.
This is the only studio tour in the state where all the artists will be demonstrating their techniques in their actual working environments.Mediums include oils, watercolors, acrylics, wood turning, quilting, kilnworked glass, scratchboard, bronze sculpture, artistic blacksmithing, jewelry making, handmade paper, fine woodworking, fiber arts,and ceramics.
Looks like I need to make my way to this one. For poets looking for an online venue, year round, head to www.slampoems.com to submit performances and compete.

Freebird uses collective improvisation to create new music art in the moment. Last month's concert got raves from the audience. "Unique and engaging," they said.
