The band just named “Best Band in Fort Collins” by CSU, a sonic

trio, a world famous DJ and a bluegrass duo promise to deliver good

tunes to students this weekend.

The band Seven Nations is playing with Mission 19 at the Aggie

Theatre Thursday night. Mission 19 was recently voted the CSU Best

Local Band for 2003, and Seven Nations describes themselves on

their Web site as “bagpipe, fiddle and guitar, one of the most

unlikely sonic threesomes imaginable come together seamlessly.”

Another Thursday night show that features an established talent

is the performance of Seattle favorite Honey Tongue at the

Starlight. Honey Tongue was named the “Touring Artist of the Year”

by Seattle Area Music Awards and is releasing a new album, “Take Me

Anywhere,” produced by Brett Eliason who has worked with Pearl Jam

and Neil Young. Playing more than 200 shows a year throughout the

United States and Canada has made Honey Tongue a very popular live


Friday night the Fillmore plays host to world-renowned DJ Paul

Van Dyke. Van Dyke is internationally famous for his spinning and

musical talents. This is the show for those who missed him last


Bluegrass fans have a treat Saturday night at Avogadro’s Number.

The Cantrells will be performing their nationally recognized,

self-described “pop spin on acoustic folk and bluegrass music.” Al

and Emily Cantrell have played with the likes of Bela Fleck and Tim

O’Brien as well as having worked with Robert Redford on the set of

“A River Runs Through It.”
