I've been looking forward to the HWA project was fortunate to catch the inaugural show of this very special tour. For more on this project visit http://thehardworkingamericans.com/. And clock in with HWA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke8npv286aQ - Q&A with the band the night before this show.
Proceeds from the Boulder show were donated to victims of the 2013 Colorado floods, including many local musicians. Thanks to all who attended and special thanks to Todd Snider and the rest of band, Hayes Carll, Mr. George Boedecker, and all others involved for offering their precious resources for such a worthy cause.
