Promotions can be a nasty business. The competition is rabid, cutthroat and full of enough shit-talking to make Simon Cowell cringe. So who ever thought that rival promoters could actually work together instead of against each other? To prove that harmonious unions are always better than pretentious bidding wars, the heads behind the Oriental Theater have teamed up with the infamous Deadhead Bianchi Brothers -- who run the Sancho's/Dulcinea's/Cervantes'/Quixote's empire -- to form a totally killer booking alliance. The merger allows the individual promoters access to each other's venues for special events and also includes a cross-promotion deal to maximize advertising exposure for everyone's shows. Smart move.

This is the best thing to happen for the theater since Adam leaving.

Ellen, make up your mind sugar tits!! Is Scott an "idiot" or a "real asshole?" Make up your mind, you indecisive big-assed slut.

While there are some who may think that Adam is a total nut-job, he is right about those posters. His posters were the best. Whenever my band played there people always remarked that the posters were so beautiful that it didn't even matter that they were filled with typos and generally had the wrong date and/or time. Nobody ever cared because they sure were purdy. Man Adam, why that place ever let a sweet catch like you walk is beyond me.

Oh, by the way: "mural" not "murial," brainiac.

!?!??! How about "best desperate attempt to save your skin after ripping off half of denver?" "How about best new hippie dive bar that could have been a world class music venue" As a former employee of the oriental theater who is owed $12,000 in back pay and personal loans, I think this award is a joke. What happened to the gong show? Ukulele Loki? Mile High Sci Fi? GOOD indie rock shows? Diverse and cutting edge booking with an emphasis on local talent? Inovative guerilla marketing and some of the best posters in denver? The fact of the matter is, the owner ship of the O is desperate and will be fully swallowed by the bianchis by this time next year. Oh, and nice touch on painting the interior of a 1920's movie palace with a psychedelic rainbow murial. REAL CLASSY!
