Re: “Singer-songwriter Sean Anglum's sound advice

My thanks to Bill Forman for the opportunity to give some Sound Advice. An important ingredient to my online discovery, Bennett Wilson Poole, is the pedigree of Tony Poole as the leader of the great 70s/80s powerhouse folk-rock group, Starry Eyed and Laughing. I know that bit ended up on the editor's floor, but that cred puts the muscle in this new trio. Thanks again, Bill. - Sean A.

Re: “The Side Door music space makes its low-key debut in former Blue Star spot

I would LOVE for this to be successful. Wondering where 700 people will park when they go catch a show?

Re: “The Side Door music space makes its low-key debut in former Blue Star spot

Music coming soon to some place not quite open... fun has been delayed but promised at a later date.
Colorado Springs has always in my experience been a fairly miserable place for live music and its getting worse than ever. Obviously the wanting to book acts that would play Denver means there is really no local musicians that can hold anyone's interest. And starting at 7PM and done at 11 is for schoolkids. Now we also have most bars closing at 12 or earlier, no smoking, poorly trained bartenders, karaoke listed as live music, cliquish open mics, rehearsed "jam sessions" but really no live music except Friday and Saturday except for the odd late afternoon last minute drum circles. I laughed awhile back reading here how some developer wanted to make this town another Austin Texas! What? 200 bands a night every night all over the city?! And the ballpark downtown are what you is and ain't what you're not...

Re: “Daniel Burton on resurrecting Early Day Miners and being compared to William Faulkner

As someone who's overly familiar with New Orleans area from a young age, I just don't get all the fascination. It's an ugly, smelly, hot, politically corrupt, violent, environmentally-nightmarish place - and the food is overrated (seriously overrated). And sorry, but Mardi Gras is totally racist and stupid. I've been to more parades than I can remember and have relatives who are members of these "societies" and ride the floats.

The people who find artistic inspiration in this place can find it in any urban shit hole along with the associated "culture" it attracts - booze, smack, hookers, thugs, corrupt cops, crooked politicians, and overpriced food. I totally avoid NO when at all possible (Louisiana too, for that matter). Then again, I find the whole deep South area of the Gulf Coast to be a conservative backwater in need of federal occupation, so...
