On Saturday, February 28, ambient DJ extraor-dinaire Mix Master Morris comes to Fiske Planetarium, on the CU-Boulder campus, for an event that promises to be spacey. Morris is planning a four-hour set complete with video effects and film projections by local artist Joel Haertling. Attendees should expect to hallucinate whether they're on anything or not. Tickets are available at Club Records in Boulder and other locations.

Our friends at Celtic Events & Entertainment in Denver are ready to party. Mile High Hooley II, a Celtic music and dance festival, takes place from noon until well after nightfall on Saturday, February 28, and Sunday, March 1, at the Temple Events Center at 16th and Pearl. Participating acts include Cherish the Ladies, Dick Gaughan, Connie Dover and bouzouki expert Roger Landes. Dancing is encouraged--and if any of you dudes are into wearing a kilt, you'll fit right in.

The confusion over when you and yours can see 16 Horsepower live is over. The band is slated to appear on Wednesday, March 4, at the Bluebird Theater, with the Czars in a supporting role.

Glad we got that cleared up. On Thursday, February 26, Pegboy fits into a round hole at the Bluebird; the Lynne Arriale Trio headlines at the Mount Vernon Country Club in Golden; the David Nelson Band appears sans Ozzie and Harriet at Quixote's True Blue; Roots Awakening begins a three-night run at Jimmy's Grille; and Dave Delacroix warbles at Herman's Hideaway. On Friday, February 27, Space Team Electra, Worm Trouble and Half Burned Match venture to Cricket on the Hill, and Steel Pulse beats a path to the Ogden Theatre (the band also appears on Sunday, March 1, at the Fox Theatre). On Saturday, February 28, Paul Galaxy & the Galactix soar at the Cricket; Turnsol twists at the Market Street Lounge; Blister stages a video-release party at the Ogden; the Candy Snatchers soothe their sweet tooths at the 15th Street Tavern, with the LaDonnas; House of Large Sizes fill up the Lion's Lair; and the String Cheese Incident is unwrapped at the Fox. On Sunday, March 1, Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins does an in-store at Rupp's Drums, 2045 South Holly. And on Tuesday, March 3, the Nightcaps have one more for the road at the Bluebird, with the Delta Rockets, and the Crystal Method avoids drug references at the Ogden. Obviously, that's easier said than done.
