Now that there's one less club for original music here in Colorado Springs — thanks to the recent closing of the Rocket Room — there's one more reason for local bands to try to break into the Denver market.
Monday, the Larimer Lounge posted a Twitter message soliciting artists to come play their venue:
"Got a band? Play awesome tunes? Go to www.booklarimer.com and fill out a show requests and we'll get you a gig!"
If you're a Colorado-based artist, the site will then direct you to the important-sounding Larimer Lounge Reports System (LLRS) - *Local* Show Request Form.
And from there, the sky's the limit, more or less:
"Use this form to request a show at Larimer Lounge. Please fill it out and we will contact you shortly. If you can bring 100+ people to your Larimer show, we will book you a show at the Bluebird Theater!"
So there you have it. And here, just to inspire you to somehow persuade 100 friends to show up, is some video of Cut Copy playing "Feel the Love" on that very same stage:
