These shows sound interesting as hell. This is one time that I really wished I lived in the Denver area. JJ will be a guest vocalist with Soulive with Jennifer Hartswick and the Hartswick Horns at the Fox Theatre. It's an all Soulive show, no Mofro songs or anything. Hearing JJ's voice with Soulive's grooves ought to be quite awesome. Let's hope for a taper.

I'll be a gametime decision, depending on the weather and how much work I can get done between now and then, but am hoping to make it.  Oh how fun to spend a wkend in the People's Republic of Boulder - 25 square miles surrounded by the real world.

I'm with you there CM. I wouldn't want to live there because I hate cold and the elevation gives me fits. That said, I've been to Boulder--more like thru Boulder--and have some friends that lived there many years and it would be a great place to spend a few days, especially if it revolved around music. Maybe someday we'll all go there and party like hell.

Lived there 25 years.  Don't miss the high, dry and dirty air.  Well, maybe I miss the high part...
Pre-show at The Sink will be a must.

Tour Manager Aaron is lives in Boulder or Denver I believe.  Can't remember if he is from there or not.  Adam, the old Tour Manager is definitely from there and lives there.

Yep Aaron lives in Denver, John "Schlummdog Millionaire" the new merch guy lives there too. And Adam had moved for a while but moved back. I gotta imagine all them will be there yessir.

Not tonight, remaining flights today are totally sold out.  Extremely doubtful that I make the 1500 mi r/t drive for tomorrow's show, as I have enormous piles of work to shuffle before our March 6 departure for Hamburg.  At the least, will be represented by my Colorado music companion, Princess Lost in the Clouds, who, as far as this group goes, is still in lurker mode.  Hate to miss these shows.

Yeah 1500 mi r/p is like Tampa to Atlanta. But ours is a fairly flat drive. Ain't no mountains to cross for sure. "Princess Lost in the Clouds." Love it.

Hate it that you're missing these shows. Aaron is going to be there tonight. I had forgotten before coming on board with Mofro he was the stage mgr at the Fox in Boulder. When the band's on break he still does that and is going to be tonight.

I did more checking, and there were actually 2 seats left on a plane leaving tomorrow at 6:20am (would need to leave my house around 4:15 to get to Des Moines).  However, there are no rental cars left in the entire city.  With the Monday holiday, it is the biggest ski weekend of the season.  Oh well, the glass is still purty full.

Tonight's show is yet to happen.  Really glad now that Denver ran out of rental cars.

Maybe that was the plan all along.  Which, if the case, would indicate quite misleading promotion.  I've seen people come up unannounced (let alone unadvertised) and play/sing more than two.  Seems like a no-win PR situation.
