While Fort Collins continues to birth musical talent, venues to showcase such talent are limited. With Hodi’s Half Note recently going up for sale, the question of whether or not The Fort can sustain a thriving music scene is raised. Current owners, John Palke and Damon Sharp, enjoyed the almost three-year run they had with Hodi’s but are moving on to pursue new life adventures. “We’d love for it to stay a music venue though,” said Palke. “It’s an ideal place for a band that wants that down-home type of feel.” Palke takes pride in playing an important role in keeping the Fort’s music scene alive. “Some people only played with us,” he said. “That’s a pretty cool feeling.” But, will this music venue stay alive? The community can only hope. If you’re interested in keeping Hodi’s a home for live shows, contact Ben Blonder of Kapital Real Estate: 970-420-6166.

Come out and celebrate not […]
