D Note love letter 4/11/13

D tails,
Adam DeGraff here, ye ol' impresario for ye ol' D Note. We are ironing out all the kinks in the transition from the DeGraffs to the The Rosenbergs and I'd have to say that overall it has been pretty smooth. Thanks for hanging with us. Long live the D Note!
Some great indie bands this weekend. Friday night brings The Constant Tourists, a gypsy jazz band that exhibits exquisite pop sensibilities followed by Idlewhile, super tasty alt country rock (for fans of The Lumineers and Churchhill.) The Deadwood Quartet on Friday night is a blues rock folk band from Boulder. Atomga is awesome afrobeat, James and The Devil is just hard core Colorado music (and REALLY fun). Check out the sweet websites for all of these bands.
Also check out our legendary salsa night Sunday night if you haven't had a chance yet. Beginners welcome. Great date night and great for singles too. Tuesdays we have swing dance lessons and a killer swing band, The Stilletos. The Big Blues Jam on Wednesday night has really taken off. You will hear some of the best blues this side of the Mississippi care of Dan Treanor and friends. Check out the rest of the schedule below.

You grow old.
You love everybody.
You forgive everyone.
You think: we are all leaves
dragged along by the wind.
Then comes a splendid spotted
yellow one—ah, distinction!
And in that moment
you are dragged under.
