Last night we went here. It's The Loft Theater in Buena Vista, Colorado. Their web page is here:
We went to see a musician we follow (Crys introduced me to his music), Trace Bundy. His website is here:
It was a fabulous show. We met a couple new musicians. Jonah Werner, who's website is:
and liked him as well. I think they're both worth a visit. Also playing were Tim and Laurie Thompson. They don't seem to have a webpage. :D They played Irish tunes and some other great stuff, the vocals were great and Tims giant electric Mandolin is worth a listen.

It was kind of a long day for me, starting at 2:30 AM with work in Alamosa and Ft. Garland fixing powerlines in the wind and snow and ending at home at about 2 AM the next day when we got back from Buena Vista.

We had the best time, starting out at Eddyline Brewery in Buena Vista. Their website is here:
We had naughty dinner complete with spicy tater tots and a delicious, giant plate of nachos. They had a bourbon barrel stout on tap that was delightful. (I had 2). Then we walked over to the Loft, which only took about 10 minutes. On the way we passed the in-town tasting room for one of my two favorite Colorado whiskeys: Deerhammer. Their website is here:
and we'll trip up there one day just to take the tour and do a bit of tasting.
After the show, town was really quiet and we walked back to our car with the dark and the stars and drove the 100 miles home. There's not much that we can get to quickly, and I always need to remember that a trip out of town can be this fun.
