Some of you may still be unaware, but Fort Collins, Colorado is becoming the place to be a rising music star, and KRFC 88.9 FM has been there along the way providing a platform for these musicians to reach out to the community and the world.
Fort Collins is very lucky to have a community radio station such as KRFC, and since August 2011, I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the radio station’s family.
KRFC’s 9th Annual Birthday Bash is bringing together the community as well as some amazing bands to celebrate and rejoice in all things music. The setting is the newly remodeled Lincoln Center – which is, by the way, perfectly magnificent.
Ben Taylor, son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, is headlining the party set for this Saturday, March 10th. There will be additional performances by 2011 local chart-topping artists, John Common and Blinding Flashes of Light, Fierce Bad Rabbit, and Danielle Ate the Sandwich. Martin Gilmore (of Long Road Home) and brilliantly gifted youth-musician Jaden Carlson round out the evening, which kicks off at 5:30pm.
Tickets range from $20 to $45, but here’s the great news. You can enter to win a pair of tickets to this outstanding event right here on HeidiTown.com.
