Lest you missed last week’s Outside Magazine Article ranking Colorado Springs the #1 City in America, please allow us to point out the fact that the KRCC-sponsored first-annual Meadowgrass Festival at La Foret was one of the notable factors:

The city is experiencing something of a cultural resurgence, too. Colorado College’s ten-month-old, $33 million performing-arts center has begun drawing national classical music and dance groups, and this year the city launched its own roots-and-blues festival, Meadowgrass.

Not bad, eh? And one of the greatest things about Meadowgrass, lest you missed that, was the amazing performance by Magnolia Electric Co, headliners of the Friday line-up.

Gladly for you, if you missed it, Mr. Jeff Bieri will be replaying their entire amazing set today (Weds., Aug. 5) at 1 p.m. on KRCC and you’ll have a chance to win this beautiful Meadowgrass Poster created by local printer Colin Frazer and signed by all the band members. On top of all that, here’s a one-song sample from Meadowgrass you can stream to whet your ear buds. “Hammer Down”:
