I've been waiting for this...

for over three years. Quick back story: When we first moved to Boulder, we were most excited about the music scene in the area and had hopes of seeing many bands that of course never came through Lubbock. The first problem in all of that was that we had just moved to Boulder, so we didn't really have money to be going to live shows.

This was September 2006, and Band of Horses played a Tuesday night show at the Fox that we ultimately decided we couldn't make it to. We had started to like their one and only album (at the time) quite a bit, and had listened to it on our drive from Texas, but apparently they hadn't quite assumed "can't miss" status. I'm sure we said "oh they'll be back again before long." That turned out to somewhat untrue. I think they have probably played Denver a time or two since then, but for one reason or another, we never made it to those. Now, finally, they return to the place where we missed them the first time, much more popular than they were then, but hopefully not an instant sellout type of popular.

Monday, March 15 - Fox Theatre, Boulder, CO

Tuesday, March 16 - Ogden Theater, Denver, CO

I think the admission price has doubled since 2006, but that's a small price to pay for making up for missed opportunities. Presumably these shows are being played en route to Austin for SXSW to do promotions for a new record. Hopefully we'll make it to that too and see them about 14 more times in the same week.

Very cool. I wish I was going to SXSW this year. When you say, "we" are you talking as a couple, or are you all in a band yourselves?

Keep up the good work.

Haven't been in a band in years, so it's just the better half and I going to soak in the best music and weather the country has to offer in March.
