For all of you as unaware as myself about news outside of the music industry, on September 6th a fire broke out across Boulder, Colorado’s Four Mile Canyon, destroying 166 homes, displacing 3,000 residents, and costing more than $9 million to battle. In response to this disaster, some of Colorado’s most well-known bands are pulling together to support the local volunteer fire departments and the mountain residents who were directly impacted by the fire and in critical need of financial support.
On October 9th at Broomfield, Colorado’s 1stBANK Center, Colorado’s own The String Cheese Incident, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Vince Herman & Drew Emmitt from Leftover Salmon will take the stage for a once-in-a-lifetime experience coined “Four Mile Canyon Revival”, reports Hidden Track. And to make the event even more delicious, Phish’s Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell, and Trey Anastasio will be making a special appearance on the eve of their fall tour. While the entire group will be there, Phish is not expected to perform a complete set.
Tickets for the benefit, priced at $60, will go on sale Tuesday, September 21st at 10 am Mountain Time (12 EST) over at KBCO. All proceeds from the concert will go directly to the Boulder Mountain Fire Relief Fund. To avoid scalpers taking advantage of the event, all passes are non-transferrable, paperless tickets, and there is a limit of four per transaction.
