Happy Birthday Fort Collins! If anyone knows how to throw a party for the books, it's you. This year's Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest celebrated not only our city but the entire Colorado Music Scene, featuring an exclusive lineup of ALL Colorado bands and artists. We had multiple stages hit capacity for Colorado Music, people drove from out of state to see Colorado Music and our community came together to support our local music scene. It's no small feat and it's something we should all be proud of.  We're building something special here and we're investing in a music community together. It takes all of us to make something that big happen but this weekend showed that we're doing it. Take pride in the fact that your music scene has so much talent and so much potential and remember that it needs your love all year round to keep it growing. Find out the name of that awesome band you saw this weekend and make sure to see them live when they play again, buy your favorite local band's album (or download it on iTunes) and make it point to celebrate Colorado Music every day.
