Preceding the concert, enjoy a screening of the documentary, How A Place Matters: How Place Can Shape Innovation, featuring Fort Collins’ own Post Paradise. Using the recent Smithsonian “Places of Invention” exhibition – which features Fort Collins – as a point of entry, the film examines what happens when the right mix of creative people, resources, and inspiring surroundings come together and spark invention and innovation. “Places of Invention” opened at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in July.
Blending strong lyrical and melodic influences from multiple genres and sources of inspiration, Post Paradise’s distinct alternative/indie-rock sound has a classical flair with edgy riffs. The foursome’s fresh sound and theatrical edge has brought them opening gigs for acts such as Twenty-One Pilots, Walk the Moon, and Panic at the Disco.
How A Place Matterso will air on Rocky Mountain PBS on Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. and Feb. 18 at 9 p.m. Approx. run time 23 minutes.
