SXSW10: One day, two great Colorado day parties!
The South By Southwest countdown begins. Yes, we know it's still two months away. Regardless, we're started to get geeked. And it looks like Colorado music is once again going to be well represented with not one but two parties showcasing the most desirable of our exports.

UPDATE: After jumping the gun a few weeks ago and posting a partial list of acts that hadn't been confirmed yet, we now have the complete list of who will be performing at this year's Mile Hi-Fidelity party, which is slated to take place on Friday, March 19 at Habanna Calle. More than a dozen artists are confirmed, including Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Wheel, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake and more. See which others after the jump. If you'll be in Austin, be sure to stop by. From past experience, we can tell you, it's going to be the goods.
That same afternoon, meanwhile, just down the block at The Wave, The Fort Collins Music Association(FoCoMa) is hosting a day party of its own, featuring six Northern Colorado-based acts (lineup below). Since a certain Fort Collins-based brewery is rumored to be on board for this party, we have a few guesses what the drink of choice at this one will be.
From the sound of it, the FoCoMa folks are working overtime. On the heels of SXSW, the group is presenting the Fort Collins Music Experiment (FoCoMx), its local music showcase which has reportedly doubled in size since last year. A hundred bands are slated to perform in twelve venues over the course of two days, Friday, April 9 and Saturday, April 10.
