Update: Charles Hughes and Cherie C will be our guests at the show tonight. Thanks to them and to everyone else who responded with the correct answer ("Don't Dream It's Over" and The Stand). We'll have more tix up for grabs later this week.
Yes, we know it's a Monday. And yes, we know the Broncos are playing tonight. And yes, we know that suggesting that you do anything else on a night where those two things converge is appalling, like asking you to lend us $20 after you've just been laid off. Nonetheless, if you happen to be one of the few folks in this town not completely consumed by all things pigskin (we'd like to meet you, BTW, as we don't really believe that you exist), we've got great news: There's some compelling non-sporto related activities to compete for your attention this evening, namely the inaugural edition of Mike Marchant's songwriters workshop at the Meadowlark. And then when that wraps, Liam Finn (Neil from Crowded House's boy) is playing a show over at the Larimer Lounge. Dude's a pretty decent songwriter in his own right. Should be a good time. Want to go? We've got a couple pairs of tickets. For your chance to win, drop us a line with the answer to this question: There was a Crowded House song played in a Stephen King movie. Which song was it and what was the movie?
