Here's the buzz:
This week we begin our great trivia run with Geeks Who Drink every Thursday at 6:30pm. It so happens we have mutual friends with the owner of GWD, John Dicker, and so it was a natural fit to host a trivia night for them. We are hoping all of you will come out and help this series achieve lift off. Check out their extensive website for a taste of what they do. We are sure much fun will be had and many new friends will get met.
After Trivia at 8:30pm we have a new band on the scene called Firebird 4000. If you are a fan of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club or Royal Trux then you will probably like these guys. We do.
Friday we have THE MOTET presents JUNO WHAT. About time we got the Motet in the D. They seem like such a great fit. If you love to dance to disco funk all night then you will love this. Opening is the fantastic TheSaurus at 7:30pm and, making the leap from New Band Night, Ten Pound Elephant at 5:30pm.
Saturday day is Olde Town Arvada's Chocolate Affair, hosted at the D Note. Tasting is 11am-3pm, $5-$10. Check out the great press for the event from the Westword.
Saturday night is going to be a wild mish mash of music. First at 6pm we have the hauntingly beautiful Bulgarian folk of Planina. $8. At 8pm we have the psychedelic rock of The Mourning Sickness and then, topping off the night like the head on a five barrel ale, we have Mr.Knowitall, a Primus tribute band. All hail Les Claypool. Check out the poster art for this show on Mr.Knowitall's myspace page. $5. We love these one-of-a-kind kind of evenings.
Check out the Clamdaddys jam every Wednesday night, lest ye forget the best free night of music in Colorado. And Salsa night too, lest ye forget the best salsa dancing to be found around here, (which is actually much better than you would think.) And keep in mind Baby Boogie Sunday afternoons too, lest ye forget the kids. We got a terrific review on the baby boogie, read here.
Next week Brethren Fast rocks our world on Friday 13 and we have our 6 year anniversary with The Reals on Valentine's day, Feb. 14th.
Extra Credit: A found poem this week, the transcript from a video mashing up 40 inspirational movies speeches:
Shame on you. This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're going to let it be the worst. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walking out, letting them get the best of you. Well, I'm not going home. We've come too far! And I'm going to stay right here and fight for this lost cause. A day may come when the courage of men fails… but it is not THIS day. The line must be drawn HERE. This far, no further! I'm not saying it's going to be easy. You're going to work harder than you ever worked before. But that's fine, we'll just get tougher with it! If a person grits his teeth and shows real determination, failure is not an option. That's how winning is done! Believe me when I say we can break this army here, and win just one for the Gipper. But I say to you what every warrior has known since the beginning of time: you've got to get mad. I mean plum mad dog mean. If you would be free men, then you must fight to fulfill that promise! Let us cut out their living guts one inch at a time, and they will know what we can do! Let no man forget how menacing we are. We are lions! You're like a big bear, man! This is YOUR time! Seize the day, never surrender, victory or death… that's the Chicago Way! Who's with me? Clap! Clap! Don't let Tink die! Clap! Alright! Let's fly! And gentlemen in England now abed shall know my name is the Lord when I tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our Independence Day!
