Hey everyone. We’ve been away from our blog for a while, but things at SpokesBUZZ have been chugging along at an almost dizzying speed. Our groups are just starting to slow down from their busy summer schedules and we’ve had a booth at what seems like every Fort Collins event over the last couple months.
Our last post dealt with our bands playing FoCoMX III, and since then a lot has happened. For starters, we’ve got a whole new class of SpokesBUZZ bands for the 2011-2012 year. They’re a great group of musicians and we’re excited to be working with every single one of them. If you aren’t familiar with this year’s class, go ahead and get acquainted with them here.
Colorado’s had some uncharacteristically sun-shiney weather through September and our groups are set to send it off in style with two big shows on the same night.
Constitution is getting ready for their album release party at Road 34 on Friday, September 30, 2011. The show starts at 9 p.m. with the very talented Maxwell Hughes opening. With the price of admission (5$) comes a copy of the new album. Remember, this show is 21+ and is going to be damn good.
On the same night is alt-rockers Post Paradise‘s release show for their new album, “The New Normal,” at Hodi’s Half Note. This show’s got something unique going on. With admission comes a download code for Post Paradise’s performance set. Our good friend Dan Butcher – being the sound genius that he is – will be multi-tracking the show and uploading it to Bandcamp.com by 6 p.m. the next day. All you’ve got to do is go to the URL provided with the download code, enter in the information once prompted and click download. Take To The Oars, Vices I Admire and SpokesBUZZ’s own Common Anomaly will be opening the night up. The show starts at 9 p.m. and is 5$ at the door/8$ under 21.
We’re going to have fun bouncing between the shows and supporting all the groups involved while the weather is still nice enough to move around outside. Come out and join us, support these great local acts and have a beer or two while you’re at it (if you’re into that sort of thing).
