new house show: Lemolo w/ You Me & Apollo, in a woodshop March 12


I am thrilled to try a new venue for our next Fuel/Friends house show – on Tuesday we are welcoming Lemolo from Seattle, with You Me & Apollo from Denver, into a spacious rad woodshop near UCCS. It smells heavenly and warm, of sawdust and creation in there.

I actually just woke up from having an elaborate dream about this show, and I can now guarantee you that it was pretty damn cool. It will be wonderful to host Lemolo’s first Colorado show ever! These ladies are from the Seattle area and have been on my radar for a while now – I saw them at Doe Bay Fest two years in a row, and they toured with The Head and The Heart.

They are some of my favorite people to watch play live: the lilting, entrancing ease with which Meagan Grandall sings, and the electrified kickass manner that Kendra Cox attacks her drums and bleepy-bloopy keyboards.

The night will be opened by rising Denver band You Me & Apollo, who I keep hearing amazing things about (like this Denver Post article, wondering if they might be the next big thing out of the Queen City). I’m excited to see them with the woodshop acoustics.

It will be $10 at the door, BYOB. Music starts around 8pm, and the bathroom situation is something we are still working on, so come with the emptiest of bladders (seriously). The woodshop is behind a house, and it is easiest to enter from the back alley, rather than traipsing through the front yard and side yard of the house, like I did the first time I was there.

Let us know if you plan to come via the Facebook event for the show. This is going to be a legendary night.

And I’ll leave you with one of my favorite moments captured on video from 2011′s Doe Bay Fest:

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
