4/20 Celebration Shows

Kebrina Chirdon and Dominic Fante

Long before the legalization of marijuana, April 20th has been the smoker’s holiday. The details of how that day became a holiday are difficult to clarify, but who doesn’t love a reason to celebrate?

Few things go better with Mary-Jane than music. Fort Collins is full of both. For those of us that cannot make it down to 420 on the Rocks at Red Rocks, FoCo has you covered with dank live music right down the road. Roll on while I “reefer” you to where the groove is going down.
