Received word over the weekend from Chris Kresge, aka Chris K, the host of Colorado Sound on KRFC in Fort Collins, that Ozric Tentacles, a lauded British prog-rock act with 25 releases to its credit in its nearly quarter century existence, has relocated to the Fort. Word comes on the heels of news that recent Grammy nominee OneRepublic is reportedly in the process of setting up shop in Denver. We've also learned that a certain well known underground hip-hop artist who's been spotted around town over the past few weeks, may also be hanging his hat here these days. We're following up on that last item as we speak and will post something as soon as we receive confirmation. -- Dave Herrera
