Two Additional Local Music Festivals Coming Soon

By David Goe

Following the trail blazed by last May's WestCO Music Fest come two new local only music events.

The first event coming your way is Localpalooza at the Mesa Theater and Club on September 20. Localpalooza features four bands, Zolopht and the Destroyers, Shotgun Hodown, Dirtylektric, and Jack and Jill. Dusty Thunders will also be there spinning his mix of deep house and nu disco. The second event is infinitely more ambitious and will feature over 30 local performers from all genres.

Cody Jacob's Localeyez Music and Arts Festival is a two-day, two-stage camping event at the Renascence Fair property off of 29 Road. Localeyez features many of the same performers as Localpalooza. Localeyez however is more representative of the current local Grand Junction scene and features performers in all genres. Announced so far are: Zolopht and the Destroyers, Chris Epic, Bronco Country, Chamber Bot, Shotgun Hodown, DJ Strangefellow, Dirtylektric, Zionexx, and Wavebaby. The second wave announcement is coming soon.

If you've been following my column you know how I feel about local music and how we need a good festival to sustain the local music scene. In fact, I've written a number of articles about it. I'll be following this story closely as it develops.
