My friends in the alt-country (neo-country?) band Halden Wofford & the Hi-Beams are playing the Colorado Governor’s Inauguration at the Fillmore in Denver next week. Their release Sinners & Saints was one of my favorites of 2010. W00t! for the band.
Join John Hickenlooper and Joe Garcia for a non-traditional inaugural dinner with live music and dancing! This isn’t your parents sit-down inaugural dinner. We’re going to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Colorado with food from around the state. Pulled pork, Colorado BBQ beef brisket, green chile macaroni and cheese, OH MY! Afterwards you can dance off the calories with live music provided by local Colorado bands. Attire is dressy western and or business.
Only 100 bucks, what a bargain. The Band’s schedule for January:
1/11 – Hickenlooper Inauguration, Fillmore Auditorium, Denver
1/14 – Bertolin Barn, Longmont
1/20 – Ghost Ranch Saloon, Steamboat Springs
1/22 – Skylark Lounge, Denver
1/23 – Oskar Blues, Lyons
1/30 – Hodi’s Half Note, Fort Collins (Recording Live Album)
I’m no Dem but I’ve got to respect a governor who started his own brewpub.
