There’s always more going on than fits in a single reasonable-length post, and one person is unlikely to know about ALL of the events and entertainment options in even a city as small as Fort Collins. Below are just SOME of the great music events happening tonight in and near Fort Collins. What have I missed? Feel free to add comments with information on shows and events I’ve not included if you know of any others going on tonight in or near Fort Collins.
The Aggie- Flood Relief Fundraiser- Lots of bands (Qbala, Antique Scream, Michael Kirkpatrick, Hog Magundy, Electric Shoes and the Billy Goats) playing as well as raffles and giveaways from local breweries at the flood relief fundraiser this Thursday. All money raised at the door, from donations, and from the raffles will be going to the Colorado Farm Bureau disaster fund. $5 at the door, doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm.
Also, please note- the event that was scheduled for the Aggie this Saturday, Butch’s 2nd Annual Lures 4 Laney benefit event, was relocated, and will still be happenning THIS SATURDAY with the same great bands. The new location is RICKY B’s in Windsor. A $5 donation to Childrens Hospital Denver gets you in the door.
Avogadro’s Number – Cahalen Morrison & Eli West and Casey Driessen perform LIVE at Avogadro’s Number! 8PM – not artists with whom I am familiar, but some of the local musicians whose judgment I’d trust wrt music are really looking forward to this show tonight.
New Belgium Brewing Co- New Belgium Brewing Bike-in movie Thursday night (a double feature since last week was canceled due to the floods)! Entrance fees and Beer sales will still go to Wolverine Farm Publishing & Bookstore as planned but we will have a booth and be selling our fair shirts, pint glasses, wine glasses as well as doing a drawing for this fine bicycle! Doors at 7pm.
Old Chicago’s – Shaefer Welch, of Rosewood Divine, will be playing a solo set tonight at Old Chicago’s in Fort Collins, starting at 10pm.
Oscar Blues (Longmont location) – Antonio Lopez is going to be ending tonight’s gig earlier to accommodate the group that was supposed to play at the Oskar Blues Location in Lyons. Antonio is on 5:30-7:45ish and Moors and McCumber will be after that.
