‘The Amputators’ – a concert that won’t cost you an arm and a leg

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The Bayou in downtown Glenwood Springs is the venue for the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts Young Audience Series. Headlining the first concert will be The Amputators, a Steamboat Springs group that plays hard/ grunge rock.

The concert is set for Saturday, Feb. 13 at 10 p.m. The New Castle group Hollow will open the show. Tickets are just $5.

The Amputators have played with the band Agent Orange and recently ended a summer tour after playing in Brooklyn, Boston and other cities on the East Coast.

Supported by a grant through Target Inc., received in May of 2009, the Center for the Arts is able to bring a series of “Young Emerging Artists” concerts and performances, formerly called the “Young Audience Series.”

“This is the first time in 5 years that we have had a rock concert hosted by the Center for the Arts,’ says Christina Brusig, assistant director for the Center for the Arts. “We are attempting to reach an audience that is under-served in our Valley to give young adults something to do that will enhance their lives artistically and culturally.”

The Center for the Arts and The Bayou Restaurant and Bar have joined to help make the concerts a reality.

Brusig is excited about the program’s potential.

“It’s my goal to promote young emerging artists in a way they have not been promoted” she said. “To make this goal a reality, there has been an enormous amount of planning and grant writing on the part of the Center for the Arts, … and because of that, we have an excellent series of performances lined up, highlighting Young Emerging Artists of all forms.”

Report: Estimates of future Upper Colorado River Basin water use confound previous planning

A report released this month by the Center for Colorado River Studies says that in order to sustainably manage the river in the face of climate change, officials need alternative management paradigms and a different way of thinking compared with the status quo. Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
