HELP RENOVATE THE FOX THEATRE IN BOULDER
The rest of us in the music community need your help. Join Robert Thomas & The Entire Fox Crew in their request to the State of Colorado for grant money to make historical renovations to the front of The Fox Theatre. These renovations will restore the facade of the building to its original 1920s appearance and bring even more charm to The Hill area, which with the potential influx of gentrification of this area of Boulder. If you’re into it, show your support for The Fox Theatre and our community by signing their petition. The more support they can take to the State of Colorado, the more likely they are to receive the much-needed grant money.

ion picks up fomo drummer
Most of you may already know, Fred (Mike) from Fomofuiab has left the band to join another Denver rock band, Ion. This has resulted in the break of the band, which breaks my heart. Fomo had a great amount of potential, but we do wish smiling Fred lots of luck in his new post with Ion, who is opening up for Cold next Tuesday, October 7 at the Ogden.
Switchpin back playing gigs
John from Switchpin is back in the saddle again, after complications with his kidneys after a recent surgery. He pulled it together enough to play the Dope show in the Springs last Sunday, and will be performing some new material this Friday at Bottoms Up Tavern in Aurora with Ten 50 six, Ain Matter, and NPO. In addition to local shows, they also plan to get out on the road and travel outside the state. Go to www.switchpin.com for more info.
