State Bridge Announces 2011 Summer Concert Lineup

State Bridge is ecstatic to officially announce the 2011 summer concert lineup. The schedule is growing by the day, but here is what they have scheduled so far.

With an eclectic roster featuring everything from bluegrass and electronica, to reggae and rock ‘n’ roll, State Bridge will have something for everyone in its first year back after a destructive fire leveled the venue in 2008.

“The first priority was to reach out to a lot of the bands that have had memorable performances at State Bridge. We also talked to a lot of the old State Bridge fans to see who they wanted to see,” said State Bridge promoter Scotty Stoughton. “Obviously, diversity is really crucial to us out here. We want to give all types of musicians and all types of music fans an opportunity to come out and have a positive experience.”

Complete with sand dance floor, the revamped riverside amphitheater is situated on the idyllic Colorado River and is ready to rock. In addition to the music, the venue offers a host of amenities such as stand up paddling, floating and other river activities, cycling, hiking, fishing and yoga, with lodging and camping available onsite.

It all kicks off Saturday, May 28 with the three-day Campout For The Cause music festival, which will host some of the best talent from around Colorado.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
