Re: “Word Wednesdays Open Mic

I've been to a few Word Wednesdays. Drive down from Denver. It's way to cool to describe. The poets are real and Patrick and company do a great job. Try it you'll love it. Anthony

Re: “Visual Pheromones

This art exhibit has changed my entire perspective on papier colle/collage. This really is an under-appreciated art form. Interesting use of colors and vintage illustations - like Monet meets Darwin. Pit Martin

Re: “TESSA Benefit feat. Mystic 7

The TESSA Event was amazing! There were over 240 bikers with more people to follow for the auction and live music by the fabulous Mystic 7!!! They were great - even brought a bike in to the bar to "play" Motley Crue's Girls, Girls, Girls!! The food came out great, service was spot on and money was made for a good charity TESSA - Building a community without deomstic and sexual violence.

Re: “Paintings by Sarah Heinbaugh

Sarah's work brings a grand scale of art to Colorado Springs, in a style reminiscent of Chuck Close with a dash of Alice Neel and David Hockney and two extra parts color for good measure. The Commons is showcasing her larger than life portraits and a few still lifes that are as unique as her take on people.

Re: “Paint the Town Blue Series

The Lethal Lisa McCall Band:

"Lisa just tore the place up with her playing! She is definitely another guitar wiz I am going to want to see a lot more of in the future. Once you hear her play, it's easy to see how Lisa picked up that nickname; a guitar in her hands IS a lethal weapon." - Chick Cavellero, Boulder Outlook Blues News Letter # 64, November, 2008.

"Did you see that girl play that guitar, Unbelievable!" - Covington Leader Oct. 97

"This Band's got a Great Big Sound!!" - 2006 Blues Hall of Fame Inductee - Bobby Rush July 06.

"This Girl Can Play!! She's the Real Deal!!!" - Blind Mississippi Morris June 01.

"From Ground Zero of the Delta, Clarksdale, MS. to the Home of the Blues, Memphis, TN. comes this Premier Female Lead & Slide Guitarist. Having toured in the Delta Heartland, and performing regularly on the World Famous Beale Street, Memphis, TN. Lisa McCall provides scorching guitar licks, haunting vocals and life experiences all expressed in her All Original Independent Contemporary Blues CD releases, "My Friends & Memphis Fever". Coming back home to Colorado Springs to help spread the word, "The Blues is Here to Stay!". - The Gazette, Colorado Springs, CO. July 2006.

“The "Memphis Feel," she attacks the listener with licks that comes from the heart, not the songbook!” Steve Kline, The Gazette Colorado Springs, CO April 2007.

“Lisa McCall is an explosive and dynamic female lead and slide guitarist. Lisa has proven that she is an outstanding draw and provides an exciting show.” Mcgoon Productions, South Park Music Tour and Music Industry Conference 2007.

"Memphis Fever" CD Review:

"But the star of this show is McCall, and she shines brightly enough. In particular, it's impressive that, McCall handles all the guitar duties herself and quite ably at that. McCall also distinguishes herself as a competent songwriter, with Love 'Out Of Mind' really standing out thanks to its meaty slide riff."- Mark Jordan Commercial Appeal January 26, 2002

"My Friends" CD Review:

A life long collection of stories about friends and those who claim to be - memorable experiences, games, and heartbreak, all told as only the Memphis Blues Babe Lethal Lisa McCall can tell them... on that rowdy blues guitar! This gal doesn't play at the blues, she delivers the real deal, authentic blues right off the river banks. Plus amazing guests like Blind Mississippi Morris on harmonica, Robert "Nighthawk" Tooms on piano/organ, and Reba Russell on bgv's bring that genuine legendary quality to the mix! (Holly Simmers, REBOURNE ENTERTAINMENT, May 2005.)

Re: “Moonlight on the Mountain

It was the best time and everything was so good and the zoo at night was amazing. All the animals you try to see during the day are up and moving. The food was great! The beer was amazing!!! It's so worth it. My boyfriend and I went on our first date to this event and we're gonna make it a every year event. We only have good things to say about Moonlight on the Mountain and we tell everyone we know to check it out. Thank you!

Great opportunity to buy unique art pieces at a reasonable price. Check out Mountain Rains Gallery 220 West Midland (main drag). They are new and have some spectacular photography, paintings, jewelry, crystals and more!

Re: “Colorado Farm and Art Market

What amazing farmers they have at this market! All local people, selling all locally produced goods in a fun location. You get to learn about the seasonality of food in this area by patronizing these farmers. A great mid-week activity for the whole family!

Re: “Colorado Farm and Art Market

Best market in town if you want real Colorado produce! They only allow vendors to sell what they have grown, so there are never any imports from warmer climates, and the produce is always fresh and nearly always organic. The produce offerings change with the season (and will increase as the summer progresses), so visit often to try the best in-season foods you can find in town!
