Last night’s Ironwood Rain gig at Clear Creek Books in Golden was an absolute blast! The weather was BEAUTIFUL. The city had the street closed down for First Friday, they had vendors and entertainment, and there were throngs of people everywhere: in the store, on the sidewalk, in the street… It's a great bookstore in a beautiful location. Craig is a great guy with a terrific wit, and has been very supportive of our music.
The platform section of the store made a perfect ‘stage’ for us to play. We pointed one of the speaker 'sticks' out the door for the passers by, and it attracted quite a bit of attention. The music was ‘on,’ the band was having fun; and judging by the smiles on the faces of the dozens (perhaps millions!) of people who came in to listen, or just to stop outside the windows and watch, the crowd was enjoying the music too!
As a result, we got booked to play the main stage for the July First Friday, (July 2nd) and we are looking forward to returning to play again in picturesque downtown Golden.
If you’re looking for something fun to do on First Fridays in the summer, definitely come to downtown Golden. We’ll see you there!
A great big thanks to Craig, the owner of Clear Creek Books - a terrific store in the heart of scenic Golden, Colorado. Craig is an awesome guy. The store has a great selection of books, fresh coffee, high ceilings a picture windows with a beautiful view, and a pleasant atmosphere. If they don’t carry the book you’re looking for, they will find it for you!
