Why You Don’t Need to Leave Fort Collins to Find a Bass Music Scene

Some say the grass is greener 60 miles down the road.   And although I’m not referring to the marijuana of the Mile High, which would be an argument for an entirely separate column, I am alluding to Denver’s reputation as the “Bass Capital” (of yes, the world).   Tired cliches aside, Denver has and forever will play the bigger, greener brother to Fort Collins.

One-on-one education a focus at Fort Collins’ Digital Workshop Center

Stu Crair jokes about being the training director at the Digital Workshop Center by day and the drummer for a couple Fort Collins bands by night. Fortunately, running the private occupational school and playing in the bands, Dead Floyd and Musketeer Gripweed, involves some overlap, Crair said.
