Well Thanks to Bud Fucking Light we once again have a “Rocks the Boat” concert series. The Pilot newspaper announced “Ski area announces concert lineup” heres an excerpt:
Steamboat Springs â€” The Bud Light Rocks the Boat Concert Series begins Feb. 17 with a lineup of five nationally known bands.
â€œThis is absolutely the best lineup of bands to take part in the Bud Light free concert series, period,â€ said Andy Wirth, vice president of sales & marketing for the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. â€œThis is the seventh season of the Bud Light Rocks the Boat Series and, as evidenced by the talented array of artists, has reached an entirely new level.â€
The bands will appear in this order: Joseph Israel and the Jerusalem Band, North Mississippi Allstars, The Freddy Jones Band, Sister Hazel and Big Head Todd and the Monsters. All of the bands will appear on stage in Gondola Square, which each concert beginning at 3 p.m.
While I am looking forward to some live music in Steamboat Springs I can’t help but remember the past “Rocks The Boat” performances and what a disaster some of them were. In the past the stage has been set up facing the Bear River deck from the gondola entrance with the audience entirely blocking the walkway to gondola square from the skiers and riders that are exiting the mountain. A steady flow of cross the audience, skis in your face, stumbling in ski boots traffic during the performance is an incredible annoyance for the concert goers, who are forced to stand in the melting spring slush.
Andy Wirth claims in the article â€œThis is absolutely the best lineup of bands to take part in the Bud Light free concert series, period,â€ and that the event “has reached an entirely new level”. I would like to know how he has
arrived at such a conclusion. My opinions differ. please share yours by commenting.
