Original Item (10/23/11): Some very sad news to report this morning: We've received word that Bryon Woodard has passed away. Woodard, who helped give countless acts their start at Cricket on the Hill, the iconic bar on 13th and Downing where he once bartended, managed and that he later co-owned with Chris Rawles, was a beloved member of the Denver music scene. We'll post more details as they become available. In the meantime, our sincere heartfelt condolences go out to Bryon's friends and family.
