On scene for July 14

Free concert/Rainbow Gathering
Everyone at the free concert/rainbow gathering Friday night saw the fluorescent pink and orange sunset and the rainbow that followed it.
I missed the rainbow circle that closed the concert and the nudist colony that was somewhere in between.
It was definitely one of the best free concerts. Even through the steady drizzle, there was a strong energy that everyone could feel. (Why does it always seem to rain at the free shows?)
Michael Franti & Spearhead were fabulous, and there was a healthy dancing crowd in front of the stage that was even bigger than the lines for the port-a-potties.
I was bummed that I didn’t get a chance to go up to Big Red Park to check out the Rainbow Gathering, but if it was as good as the feeling of so many people gathering together at the free concert, then the substitution was gratefully accepted.

Almost a fairytale
There’s quite a scene at the Thursday free concerts in the Yampa River Botanic Park. It was a too perfect way to spend the afternoon listening to live classical music while walking through gardens or sitting on the grass next to a tranquil pond. It felt almost like a fairy tale.
Strings in the Mountains brings us the music that defined every other type of music. The Music on the Green concert was a simply elegant and refreshing engagement.
You’re crazy if you don’t attend one of these concerts. They occur every Thursday at 12:15 p.m. at the Botanic Park.
