We’ve been hearing about Mishawaka from locals for years. It’s an outdoor venue in the hills surrounding Fort Collins. It is decidedly not a mini Red Rocks (as we had heard) but is a very cool place to play. There is a beautiful river full of trout about 30′ from the stage. When we arrived people were fly-fishing along the banks. They’d fish for a bit, walk over to the bar, grab a pint of Fat Tire and then head back to the river. My kind of place.

When the sun went down the cool mountain air felt great. There was a 5-camera film crew on hand so with any luck there will someday be a JBB/Black Seeds DVD available. Film crews can sometimes be mentally intimidating. I think I made a million tiny mistakes, but didn’t let it shake me because I felt like the collective vibe was on. I hope I’m right. We’ll see.
