Summer simply hasn’t been the same this year. No fans in the seats at Coors Stadium, no dancing at Red Rocks or our favorite local venues, it almost feels like a sci-fi movie. Despite these stressful changes, it’s an important time to remember how lucky we are in Colorado, a state with a rich, music culture and history.
Due to state mandates banning large gatherings, our venues and artists are facing incredible challenges to keep their doors open. We wanted to take action to continue our support of the local music industry by supporting the Boulder and Fox Theaters with a $30,000 contribution dedicated to preserving Boulder’s music scene and historic venues. Even though we can’t gather for live music, it’s up to all of us to secure a bright future for Colorado music!
“The nexus between cannabis and the arts goes back as long as our history with cannabis and music. The Boulder and Fox theaters are institutions right in our backyard whose endless contributions to the live music scene have shaped our community for decades.” – Owner and CEO of Terrapin
