Happy Siblings Day!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - April 10, 2018

Good morning Colorado Springs, and welcome to this week’s edition of the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog! Weather-wise here in town this week it’s looking pretty calm so far, with over-cast skies pretty much all week, but temperatures in the mid-high 70s through Thursday!

His harrowing adventures along the Straight and Narrow Path bring to light and life the classic Bunyan “visions” of the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the River of Death, battles with demons and dragons, imprisonment by Giant Despair, colorful discourse with an array of wise men and fools... and one defining moment at the foot of The Cross.

This is the 11th year for Art Aloud and the venues include AAFC, Hooked on Books, and Sand Creek Library Branch. Each venue will have a reception with a live poetry reading given by the artists and anyone who would like to share their work or favorite poet. Music is absolutely "aloud" to be shared!

PPCC Theatre production of the Greek tragedy by Euripides written 2,400 years ago but performed with a modern twist-- five major female roles and an all-female chorus.
After ten years of bloody siege, the Trojan War has finally ended. The Trojan Horse worked, and the Grecian armies were victorious, leaving the slaughtered bodies of husbands, fathers, brothers, sons of Troy in their wake. The Trojan Women focuses on the survivors of the war, the women of Troy, who await being divvied up as slaves to the Greek conquerors. A story about the collateral damage and uncomfortable complications of war, this 2,400-year-old play continues to haunt and echo through today.

This Week in Colorado Springs (04/04 - 04/08)

April is Here!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - April 3, 2018

Good morning Colorado Springs, and welcome to the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog! It’s looking like the moisture we missed all winter is finally getting to us! We’ve got rain in the forecast both Friday and Sunday of this week, but sunny skies and temperatures in the high 50s to mid 60s all the way through next week. With that in mind, let’s see what the Springs has to offer this week!
 
Kicking off our week with Tuesday (4/3), we’ll be heading over to Pub Dog Colorado for their Barks, Booze, & Bags Fundraiser! The fundraiser is to benefit the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.

As for this Wednesday (4/4), we’ll be swinging by the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center where they’ll be showing the work of Chiho Aoshima: Takaamanohara! Drawing equally from traditional Japanese Shinto mythology and contemporary Anime films, this immersive, highly detailed video installation by Chiho Aoshima invites the viewer into another world.
The title "Takaamanohara," the plain of high heaven, refers to a place where Shinto deities reside. With a vivid imagination and a saturated color palette, this video retells a creation story about the time when the gods of heaven separated from the gods of the land.
 
Rolling right along into Thursday (4/5), we’ll be heading over to the Broadmoor World Arena, where they’ll be presenting comedy superstar Jeff Dunham! Jeff Dunham is bringing his cast of characters on the road, as America’s favorite ventriloquist tours North America on his 60-city Passively Aggressive tour through spring 2018. Tickets on sale now at jeffdunham.com.
Dunham recently released his latest stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, on Netflix in September 2017. The special, filmed in Dublin Ireland, features Dunham along with his ill-behaved and slightly demented posse of characters for a gleeful skewering of family and politics. Dunham and his famous cohorts Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut also consider what a new member to their already dysfunctional family could mean, putting the ‘relative’ in Relative Disaster.
 
And kicking off our weekend with Friday (4/6), we’ll be heading over to the Stargazers Theatre for their presentation of Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zepplin Experience! Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing.

Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Led Zeppelin counterparts. In eighteen successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. As one of the longest tenured Zeppelin tributes, Zoso's 2400 live shows around the world, including slots at major festivals such as Bonnaroo and Rib America Fest, have established them as the most traveled and successful band in the market. You won’t want to miss this one!
 
Continuing on with Saturday (4/7), we’ll be making a stop by the Pikes Peak Center, where they’ll be presenting the Colorado Springs Philharmonic – Ravel: La Valse! La valsepoème chorégraphique pour orchestre (a choreographic poem for orchestra), is a work written by Maurice Ravel between February 1919 and 1920; it was first performed on 12 December 1920 in Paris. It was conceived as a ballet but is now more often heard as a concert work. In his tribute to Ravel after the composer's death in 1937, Paul Landormy described the work as follows:
“...the most unexpected of the compositions of Ravel, revealing to us heretofore unexpected depths of Romanticism, power, vigor, and rapture in this musician whose expression is usually limited to the manifestations of an essentially classical genius.”
 
And wrapping up our week with Sunday (4/8), we’ll be heading out to the FanDraught Sports Brewery for the first annual FanDraught Baseball BrewFest! Celebrate Rockies home opener weekend at the first annual Baseball Brewfest. An unlimited taster party at FanDraught, with nine independent, Colorado breweries. In nine baseball positions.

This Week in Colorado Springs (03/27 - 04/01)

Happy Easter!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - March 27, 2018

Good morning Colorado Springs, and welcome once again to the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog! We’ll be starting our week off with a bit of slushy rain/snow on Tuesday and a good chance of more rain on Wednesday, but after that we’ll have highs in the 50s and 60s all the way through the weekend! Now let’s see what the Springs has to offer this week!
 
We’ll be kicking off our week on Tuesday (3/27) with a trip over to the Pikes Peak Center, where they’ll be hosting Riverdance – The 20th Anniversary World Tour! is an innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song. Drawing on Irish traditions, the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music into the present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. For over 20 years, nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty. This electrifying and innovative seven minute dance piece was then developed into a full-length stage show by Producer Moya Doherty, Composer Bill Whelan and Director John McColgan. With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin in early 1995. This is a show you won’t want to miss!
 
With rain in the forecast for this Wednesday (3/28), we’ll take the opportunity to head over to the Space Foundation Discovery Center for their Family Star Party: Wherever the Weather GOES! An evening of looking to the stars and discovering the wonders of the universe. This event creates a fun learning environment for the whole family and inspires the next generation of astronomy enthusiasts! All outside activities are free to the public, and discounted admission is available for those wishing to explore the Discovery Center and Science On a Sphere® inside. Activities include: • Anemometers and rain gauge activities and crafts • Virtual Reality: 360˚ GOES Video • Night Sky Viewing: Moon & constellations • Science On a Sphere® presentations.
 
As for this Thursday (3/29), we’ll be making our way up to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center for their presentation of Fun Home, the Tony Award winning musical! Fun Home is an original, refreshingly honest musical punctuated with an innovative score that frames the curiosity of childhood and the complexities of family. Alison’s father was many things: a historical preservationist, a funeral home director, a distant parent, and a closeted gay man. In the struggle to understand her father, while also dealing with her own budding sexuality, Alison reveals memories of her life at three different ages. This Tony Award–winning musical, based on the groundbreaking, best-selling graphic memoir, will take audiences on a heartrending and fiercely funny journey.
 
Kicking off our weekend with Friday (3/30), we’ll be heading over to the Stargazers Theatre for their presentation of the DeadPhish Orchestra! The Deadphish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene. Members include: Paul “Lefty” Murin, Ted Tilton, Brian Adams, and Chris Sheldon. While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges–funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens!
 
With weather looking to be nice and sunny on Saturday (3/31), we’ll be heading up to the Manitou Cliff Dwelling Museum where they’ll be hosting Colorado Wolf Adventures! Explore the fascinating architecture of the ancient Anasazi and browse through two museums featuring cultural displays all overlooking the historic town of Manitou Springs. Have you ever met a Wolf? Ghost, Spirit and Apache are wonderful wolf ambassadors. Please note $20 for pictures and a 45 inch height minimum for children. Due to high demand arrive by 1:30 pm to see wolves.
 
And wrapping up our week with Easter Sunday (4/1), we’ll be swinging by the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center where they’ll have Alex Harris’ Red White Blue and God Bless You, A Portrait of Northern New Mexico exhibit! Documentary Photographer Alex Harris began creating images of Northern New Mexico in the 1970s, exploring how the interiors and exteriors of homes and vehicles expressed people’s lives in their particular place. This exhibition features a selection of nearly three dozen photographs from Harris’ series Red White Blue and God Bless You, taken between 1979 and 1988, and completed as a book project in 1992. Through intimate views of exuberant lived spaces within these Hispanic American rural communities the artist presents his experience of the cultural landscape.
