Take Note!

If you’re missing the festivals of summer, head down to the I Love Music Festival (formerly known as the NoDo Record Swap), featuring sixty bands — including Space in Time, Pink Hawks and Oblio Duo — playing twenty-minute sets in every genre from thrash to blues to gypsy folk. “We’re just trying to have a day where you can enjoy the full range of music,” explains Bob from Bar Bar. “Not just rock out, but maybe swing a little bit more.”

The fun got started with seven grind bands last night at Blast-o-Mat, 2935 West Seventh Avenue, and really gears up today at noon at the Old Curtis Street Bar, 2100 Curtis Street, followed by an evening of all-women thrash acts at Bar Bar, 2060 Champa Street. The fest wraps up tomorrow starting at 2 p.m. at the Old Curtis Street Bar. Admission is $5 per day, per venue, and there will be giveaways throughout the weekend. For more information, call 720-232-7318.
