In honor of 303 Day, I put together the following yoga playlist of some of my favorite local artists.
I play a lot of local music in my classes anyway, but choosing which artists and songs to include during a one-hour 303 Day class wasn’t easy. There are many terrific local artists not represented below.
I’ve included links to each artist’s website as well as the info I could find regarding their next live show. I’m sure I’ve gotten something wrong; please feel free to let me know if so. And definitely use the comments section to share who your own favorite local artists are!
— “Airplane Mode,” by the Flobots – I couldn’t find any upcoming tour dates
I’ve put together a Best of Colorado playlist on Spotify featuring some of my favorite songs by Colorado artists (plus Wyoming’s The Patti Fiasco). This playlist includes most of the above songs, though not all of them are currently available on Spotify. It’s an ever-evolving list, as I’m always looking for bands to check out. You can also listen to music on nearly every artist’s webpage that I’ve linked to above. (If you’re wondering where some of the usual suspects are, I chose to put some of our more widely known local artists on my pre-class playlist, and I’ve included these on the Spotify list too.)
Lastly, I must say a word about the Railbenders. I tried hard to include them on my yoga playlist, but it just wasn’t working for the yoga class. (I did include Angie Stevens’ version of “Whiskey Rain,” which is excellent, though much sadder-sounding than the original.) Anyway, if you haven’t seen these guys live, you should check them out. They are a BLAST. They are playing at the Soiled Dove on 3/31/12, and they are also on the line-up for Denver Day of Rock.
Thanks for reading, and, again, please add your favorites below.
