Today is Saturday, April 7th and coincidentally today I am sharing my personal selection of 7 special events for Colorado 4/20 weekend 2018. While it was insanely hard to narrow it down to just 7 events, I feel this mix truly has something 4/everyone! STONERS B WARNED. 420 has now GONE FULL WEEKEND in CO and scanning the horizon it appears it could turn full “bongathon”. =)

My “party mom” advice: take it easy breezy this 4/20 and remember slow and steady wins the golden green turtle race. Plan now to designate a driver for any events you are going to consume ANY sort of substance at. Make sure if you partake you take part in making sure you make it home safe.

And now for a little flashback to my first year living and blogging in Colorado.

Why?  Because… “The seeds of the future can be found in the soil of the past.”

I remember the day I met Chris Anderson & The “Sunsquabi Boys” in Boulder, CO, the year was 2012 and I was a freshman in College. A mutual friend I met at JWU Denver campus that had gone to high school with Chris introduced me to the group. She invited me to an STS9 show that they were all going too at the chilly tail end of December at The Fillmore in Denver. I remember rocking the night away at numerous totally EPIC SunSquabi jam “after parties” on The Hill that year.

Though time has challenged all of us to grow and change to better fill the shoes of our larger SOUL PURPOSES, it was on that day 12/30/12, that the “Sunsquabi Boys”  became part of my musical SOUL FAMILY and STS9 became one of my SOUL FAMILIES favorite bands.

I had no clue then that time would do such a diligent job at watering the lovingly planted SunSquabi seed, shifting and transforming the band for the better. The house parties I grew to love quickly were quickly traded for shows at some of Colorado’s best venues.

How beautiful it has been to witness some of my favorite musicians BLOOM under the spotlight of venues like Red Rocks. How special it has been to watch the band that I once attended CU house parties with EXPAND and start to sell out larger and larger spaces like The Fillmore. For all of these reasons and so many more, my #1 event for 4/20 weekend in Colorado is OPIUO + Syzygy Orchestra/ SunSquabi at Red Rocks, on Saturday, April 21st, 2018! 

The rest of the events on this list are in RANDOM ORDER and are simply my personal favorite picks for 420 events in Colorado this year. While there are TONS of other events happening all over the state for 4/20 week in CO I have hand selected those on this list to appeal to a variety of different types of art and music lovers.

The list includes a “Target Audience” that I have pre-determined based on years of experience marketing different events in the Colorado scene.

The list showcases a wide range of locations and ticket price points that should allow most Colorado 4/20 goers to find at least one event that matches both their personal style and budget.

FESTIVAL ART SPOTLIGHT: Forward Momentum’s Instrument Garden at SONIC BLOOM 2017

Happy First Sunday in JULY to all of the marvelous manifestors’ near and far! I woke up the first day of this month 7/17 renewed, refreshed, and creatively inspired.

I am excited to be sharing with you something special that my good festival industry friend Tyler Manning has been working on! Tyler has become well known in the industry as Producer of EDM event Boredomfest in Michigan. Tyler is an insanely intelligent and hard working GET IT DONE type guy who continues to impress me no matter what endeavor he decides to pursue. We met when I was the Office Manager for ARISE and I brought him onto the team. I am so impressed by how he adapts to any role he takes on and I know his role with ARISE has helped the entire production and opened the door for amazing opportunities for the FORMO crew. His latest project The Instrument Garden has been featured at Boredomfest & SONIC BLOOM so far this summer.

The Instrument Garden started out as a community space for festival patrons to play instruments at ForMo’s Michigan festival, Boredomfest. Thanks to creative festivals like SONIC BLOOM, it has since blossomed into a mobile production studio, set up to sample and create music that will capture the feelings and energies of our favorite music festivals and last a lifetime.

Music producers from the Colorado-based Forward Momentum Collective set up The Instrument Garden on festival sites that hold instruments and music producers, always ready at a moment’s notice to record the strange, exciting, and exotic sounds of the festival goers.

If you find yourself behind closed doors in the Instrument Garden, you may find that you feel called play the instrument in your hand with no barriers. A silent space is created for you to put on headphones, listen to the backtrack, and allow your soul to flow through your instrument. With this method of production, rawest and most authentically flowing sounds manifest. The artist is free of worry about what’s musically right or wrong and this ultimately creates an album.

At the end of the festival, hosts perform the music on stage and invite all collaborators to join them and feel the joy of sharing the creation with the community.
