Download free Colorado music, thanks to BolderBOULDER



Look, I hear you. I can't imagine running or walking six miles, except, perhaps, to find some great bands and cold beverages. Still, every Memorial Day, thousands of people descend on Boulder to run the BolderBOULDER. This is the famous 10k race's 31st year, and, if you're like me, it'll be the 31st year that you won't be running. However, for non-runners, there's plenty of ancillary entertainment all along the race route, including many, many bands and solo musicians. For the sixth year in a row, race organizers have put together a compilation of songs that you can download on the BolderBOULDER website, tracks from a bunch of great local bands including, King for a Day, Magic Mice, Sonnenblume and Meniskus, among others. And, if you happen to be a runner, 2009 is the first year when headphones will be allowed on the course, so you can load these tunes onto the portable listening device of your choice before you commence to pounding the pavement.
