Want a huge music festival in your backyard? In south Denver, some neighbors cringe while others embrace the idea.

Where Lovell sees careful plans taking shape that will blunt the festival’s bleed-over effects on the neighborhood, Orr senses empty promises that Superfly and its partners can’t possibly deliver. New York-based marketing and event company Superfly Productions has selected the Overland Park Golf Course as the venue for its next massive music festival in Denver, Colorado. If it approves Superfly’s lease agreement, the council will seal Denver’s five-year commitment for a four-stage event that could close the golf course for five weeks after Labor Day each year — including for setup and tear-down of the festival — and raise money for city coffers, municipal golf courses and a community improvement fund. Only a handful were pink to indicate support. Why is that?”
Laurie K. In the immediate area next to the course, Lovell is among just a handful of vocal supporters. “It was never really about making sure the neighborhood had a say,” the 35-year neighborhood resident suggested about city officials’ review of the plans. Not many people in our neighborhood actually golf,” said Owen, who lives farther southeast of the course, closer to Broadway. The contract requires Superfly to pay $200,000 in rent for use of the course and $90,000 for landscaping work. Surveys and other outreach by city officials suggest large numbers of people are supportive in the wider city or at least felt Superfly’s representatives, including local event producer David Ehrlich, addressed their concerns during meetings. “I listened to them lay out quite a bit of plans of how they’re going to deal with the challenges,” he said, “and I heard nothing that would dampen my initial enthusiasm for it.”

On Monday, Superfly’s 42-page contract for use of the golf course lands in the City Council for a decision. Orr came armed to a council committee meeting June 20 with a map of the area’s 126 homes and suggested that petition canvassing by her and other opponents had rallied most residents there against the festival. Transit riders then would trek to entrances on the north side of the golf course, away from immediate neighborhoods, though there are pedestrian access issues to overcome. She held the map aloft, and most of the homes were shaded green, signifying opposition. That’s despite assurances given to neighbors by the Denver Office of Special Events and the Parks and Recreation department that they will hold Superfly to its commitments, including submitting a dozen or so logistical plans ahead of each year’s event. “We have this beautiful piece of land that says ‘No trespassing’ on it,’ unless visitors pay to play golf. Helene Orr and Rob Lovell both live less than a block behind that stage, across the street from Overland Park Golf Course. The festival would be able to run from noon to 10 p.m., with possible dates on the second or third weekend each September. Superfly also produces the 15-year-old Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in rural Tennessee. Orr and others portray city officials, including the area’s councilman, Jolon Clark, as appearing to work on Superfly’s behalf to rally support. She lamented: “I will never have a quiet fall in my home again.”
But Lovell, who moved in five years ago on West Jewell Avenue, views the festival as the latest exciting development in south Denver, building on the opening Thursday of the Levitt Pavilion outdoor concert venue at nearby Ruby Hill Park. He’s liked what he’s heard from the festival promoter’s representatives. Among them is secretary Terry Pasqua, who lives a stone’s throw from the course. The council’s consideration follows more than seven months of community debate that has produced deep splits around Overland Park. Disagreements have been sharpest in Orr and Lovell’s area — in seven blocks that are just south of the golf course that are the only residential area not buffered from the future festival grounds by the South Platte River or by Santa Fe Drive and the railroad tracks. Monday in its fourth-floor chambers in the City and County Building. Superfly also will contribute $2 per ticket to the city’s Golf Enterprise Fund, benefiting all golf courses, and $1 per ticket to the community fund, which Superfly co-founder Rick Farman says will collect “five to six figures” each year. Superfly also hosts the Bonaroo and Outside Lands festivals. The group, which included the parks maintenance director, viewed a couple days of setup and talked to counterparts in San Francisco city government. A proposed $937 million bond package this year includes a pedestrian bridge that would help address those issues, but not in time for the first festival. Am I supposed to sedate my service dog when all of this commotion is going on?” she said. The organizers, which at one point included AEG Live, first reached out to parks officials in April 2016. Denver’s event is among a handful of new festivals Superfly is trying to launch. For Orr and some others, there’s also strong philosophical disagreement that the event would ever be appropriate for parkland, even on a golf course, and they have raised legal concerns. Greens and tee boxes, along with natural areas on the course, must be fenced off. She worries about noise from the festival, which she compared to having “Woodstock in your backyard.”
“What am I supposed to do? “We were assured repeatedly throughout this process … that if the neighborhood didn’t want this, it wouldn’t happen,” Orr wrote Thursday in an email to council members. “No one should tell you that there’s going to be no impact — that’s part of what living in an urban environment is about.”
But he said Superfly should be judged based on how it addresses challenges that arise. Superfly’s festival would put Denver on the national music festival map with a recurring event that could grow to draw a maximum 80,000 attendees a day, per the contract. Opposition focuses on environment, park use
But there’s also a healthy opposition that has to risen to oppose the festival based on worries about noise, environmental and wildlife impact, and logistical challenges. “We’re surrounded by significant neighborhoods, and we’ve been able to figure out how to engineer all these things in a way that has minimal impact,” he said. The company next month will put on the 10th Outside Lands festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, a setting near neighborhoods that Farman sees as similar to Overland Park — though Denver’s 139-acre golf course is about one-seventh the size. They have very different visions about how New York City-based Superfly Productions‘ proposed three-day music festival — which promoters hope will draw 30,000 to 40,000 fans a day in the first year — might affect the neighborhood.

City would require several plans from Superfly
City officials have said they will closely scrutinize the several plans required of Superfly, covering everything from security to preventing parking in the neighborhoods to restoring the golf course’s turf condition after the event. “All across the board, everybody gave absolutely great references,” recalled Fred Weiss, Parks and Rec’s director of finance and administration. The final version of the contract came out Tuesday, and council members have said they won’t necessarily rush to approve it. But Mara Owen, the association’s president, credits officials and Superfly for reaching out early and answering neighbors’ questions and concerns quickly. “We actually would have utilization of previously inaccessible park land for (most) people in our neighborhood and in Denver. Other terms require Superfly to pay $25,000 to fund discounts at other city courses for Overland golfers who are displaced during the closure. Its members will hear that night from some of the festival proposal’s many vocal supporters and opponents during a one-hour public hearing; they could vote Monday but probably will wait a week, some said. There’s also the possibility that, as Lovell and other suggest, opponents are simply more passionate about speaking up than quiet supporters. Paulson, who also lives on Jewell across from the golf course, was among opponents who said city efforts to notify residents about the festival proposal and community meetings — focused largely on online outreach as well as some fliers — missed some elderly residents and Spanish-speakers, who heard about it first from the petition circulators. For Paulson, health concerns are at the top of her mind, because she says she has a degenerative disease and has a service dog. This story was first published on DenverPost.com “Yet we are here. Farman, the Superfly co-founder, said Outside Lands’ run hasn’t been without neighborhood hiccups. “My position from the beginning,” Councilman Paul Kashmann said, “has been that for (the festival) to take place, I think the neighborhood needs to be better for being there than if it didn’t take place.”
The council is set to meet and have the public hearing on the festival proposal at 5:30 p.m. Months before they and Clark were ready to start contacting neighborhood groups that fall, officials said, they sent a delegation to Outside Lands in August to vet Superfly. Superfly and city officials aim to make it a car-free festival, with music fans arriving via bike, shuttles from parking lots in central Denver and light rail to the Evans Station. “It kind of defeats the purpose.”
There are influential voices in support of the festival, including the Overland Park Neighborhood Association’s leadership. Tom Morello of The Nightwatchman performs onstage at the Sutro Stage during Day 3 of the 2012 Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival at Golden Gate Park on August 12, a Superfly production. Orr, to put it simply, senses a disaster in the making. Officials also promise that sound monitoring will happen to ensure Superfly follows the city’s noise ordinance. (Gabriel Scarlett, The Denver Post)
Starting next year, rock bands and other music acts could take up residence for a long weekend each September on Denver’s oldest golf course, blasting performances from a main stage on the driving range for tens of thousands of cheering fans. The real money — $1 million to $2 million or more — could come from the city’s collection of its 10 percent ticket tax. Owen wants to see the festival happen because it would open Overland Park to more people. Unless Superfly breaches the terms, resulting in cancellation, the festival could stick around even longer. Superfly also plans to have a 24-hour hotline residents can call to report problems.

Justin Bieber cancels Purpose tour, including Denver show

A statement on the decision released by one of Bieber’s representatives on Monday provided little explanation, simply stating that “he has decided he will not be performing any further dates.”
Fans who bought tickets to the show can get a refund at the point of purchase. Here’s hoping the Bieber-themed hotel room you booked has a similar policy. In the context of those lost-puppy-dog eyes, Bieber’s initial entrance — scrawling crosses and the word “purpose” on the walls of a giant plastic box that lowered him on stage to “Mark My Words” — took on the grim vibe of an X-Man in jail rather than the glass case of emotion it was going for. Justin Bieber performs at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado on April 4, 2016. From our review of that show:
But for every close up, Bieber looked more than cooly aloof — he looked disinterested. We’ve reached out to AEG Presents, who promoted the concert, for comment. Bieber has been on the circuit for the Purpose tour off and on since March 2016. (Seth McConnell, The Denver Post)
Justin Bieber has cancelled the remaining 14 shows of his Purpose tour, including his August 12 date at Denver’s Mile High Stadium. He played Denver’s Pepsi Center on April 5. Related Articles

Burt Bacharach – I’ll Never Fall In Love Again lyrics

A guy with a pin to burst your bubble
That’s what you get for all your trouble
I’ll never fall in love again
I’ll never fall in love again

What do you get when you kiss a guy
You get enough germs to catch pneumonia
After you do, he’ll never phone ya
I’ll never fall in love again
I’ll never fall in love again

Don’t tell me what it’s all about
’cause I’ve been there and I’m glad I’m out
Out of those chains those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you

What do you get when you give your heart you get it all broken up and battered
That’s what you get, a heart that’s shattered, I’ll never fall in love again

Out of those chains those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love? You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So for at least until tomorrow
I’ll never fall in love a- gain
I’ll never fall in love a- gain What do you get when you fall in love?

Los Adefesios Dos – Robots Del Mal lyrics

La maquina del mal,
El veneno y la toxina que quedará en el todo. Somos un nuevo tipo de inteligencia capaz de quitarte el cerebro. Tengo que parar la maquina del mal,
El interruptor del orador impulsado por la maldición, ¡oh no! Solo mi figura prevalecerá siendo capaz de reemplazar la humanidad,
Estúpida humanidad. ¿Que acaso quieres ser robot como yo? Quizás no lo comprendes, pero no hay vuelta atrás. Tengo que parar la maquina del mal,
La abominable destrucción tu ego. Somos imparables a la comprensión humana. Somos tu páncreas rítmico, pero un trozo de pan es capaz de quitarnos la
Vida de un patán tan inmortal como nosotros. Tengo que parar la maquina del mal,
Invisible a mis ojos pero sensable a mi corazón. Tenemos el poder de realizar algoritmos tan complicados. Si eres tan inmortal, entonces demuestra tu potencial demencial como si
Fueras el gran sacristán de la tumba invocada de Ra. No bromees, en este mundo no hay
Espacio para los dos, ¿eso es broma? Una vez arrasada la humanidad,
No hay vuelta atrás con este mal.

Facing West – Lifeline lyrics

I don’t know how to turn
These feelings into words
They’re churning deep inside

Down my stained cheek they’ll slide
And I know I should feel fine

I’m standing high and dry
But I can hardly breathe
‘Cause these tears I hold inside
Are pulling me
Into the deep like the tide
I’m losing faith in my mind
And I’m drifting
Looking for a lifeline
Hey yeah

On the surface I may seem
Serene and glittering
But look into my eyes
Can you see past my disguise
I don’t know how to be alright

I’m standing high and dry
But I can hardly breathe
‘Cause these tears I hold inside
Are pulling me
Into the deep like the tide
I’m losing faith in my mind
And I’m drifting
Looking for a lifeline
Hey yeah
I feel that restless wind
Call my name again
It’s pulling me back in
But I’m drowning drowning
And I’ll try to stay strong
Hold my breath and fight on
But I feel pretty far gone
And I need something to hold on

I’m standing high and dry
But I can hardly breathe
‘Cause these tears I hold inside
Are pulling me
Into the deep like the tide
I’m loosing faith in my mind
And I’m drifting
Looking for a lifeline

Ivet Vidal – Black Like Night lyrics

Babe, I should have know you weren’t easy
Babe, I should have know you’d never need me

Every moment in your eyes, every promise about us
It was all a lie, a lie

You said that your love would last, always till the end of time
It was all a lie

I should have notice that your heart is black
Like night
I should have notice that your heart is black
Like night

Your heart is black like night babe

I should have known from the beginning
Oh Babe, but you devoured me completely

Every word and every smile
Every morning by your side
It was all a lie, a lie

All the things I tough we had
Every day and every night
It was all a lie, a lie

I should have notice that your heart is black
Like night
I should have notice that your heart is black
Like night

Your heart is black like night babe

You don’t care about pain
I am trapped your game
Prisoner of my weakness, of a love I though would change one day I swear
I’ll never fall again

Again you’re black like night
You’re black, black like night

Every moment in your arms
Every promise about us
Every word and every smile
Every morning by your side

Your heart is black like night babe
Your heart is black like night babe

Elizabeth Everts – Glow lyrics

We meet and walk beside all those thoughts that might collide
No need to confide, I don’t need this outlined

Here we sit, breathe the sunset
City lights below
In this we glow

Staring at the time, all at once my thoughts capsize
You sent your troops inside and your best of spies

Here we sit, breathe the sunset
City lights below
In this we glow

Feel our flow (can you still?)
Life in tow (remind me again)
I already know (I try try try)
You have to go

You’d take me there (you said so)
Too much to bear (I’m no criminal)
We didn’t dare (I try try try)
Too much to bear

How big is this divide or is that classified
Watching me by the fireside, she’s in disguise

Here we sit, breathe the sunset
City lights below
In this we glow

Selkirk Range – Cold Coffee lyrics

There’s no need for whiskey-
This don’t call for a toast
I keep my spirits sober-
When I commune with ghosts

Take a mouthful and let it linger on
Cold coffee in my cup tonight

A winter storm west county-
They were closing down the road
I pulled into town-
Where I found you alone

In that restaurant, at that table we lingered on
Cold coffee in my cup tonight

A Rocky Mountain vista-
With its thirsty sky
We drank up those old foothills-
Then said goodbye

The sun’s going down now, let it linger on
Cold coffee in my cup tonight

Emily Estefan – Ask Me To lyrics

[Chorus]
Regret me, Love. [Chorus]
Forgive me, Love,
Erase my name
And I will drown you in elixir. You won’t make it. Locking gates to worlds
Old and unobserved,
Dusting reveries in gentle chains. You won’t make it through my winter. Dont waste your sunshine,
You won’t make it through my winter. You won’t make it through my winter. Well deserved. Dont waste your sunshine,
You won’t make it through my winter. If you ask me to. Oh, the things I’ve said to you. Ignore the ache. Oh, the things I’ve said to you. Don’t waste your sunshine,
You won’t make it through my winter. You won’t make it. You won’t make it through my winter. [Verse 2]
When I ask you to
Be the older you,
Turn the other way
I’ll be okay. Resist my name
And I will drown you in elixir. Replace my name
And I will drown you in elixir. Ignore the ache. [Bridge]
Rest the easiest of easies now. [Verse 1]
If you ask me to disappear from view,
Open avenues to revelate. Leisure rendezvous when I sang for you
Pointless lilt, unproved melodies. Oh, the things I’ve said to you. [Chorus]
Forget me, Love. Ignore the ache. I’ve found the corner of the earth. You won’t make it.

Janet Arnaiz – Time After Time lyrics

[Spoken]
Oh boy, here i am your dialling number
Sometimes i really don’t know how you feel about me
But i’m gonna let you know how it feel about you

[Verse 1]
Time after time, what we’re together
I tell you i love you now and forever
You’re doing me wrong
There’s nothing i can do
We’ve been through days
When nothing would go right
In your arms your holding me so tight
Please won’t you left me come into your heart
We Would Make Love
Through any weather
Come to the movies town up together
Hey won’t you seen boy what your doing to me

[Bridge]
Boy, why don’t you just understand
Why i’ve got to be your girl
Why don’t you let yourself go
Don’t you know

(Time, Time After Time)

[Verse 2]
Time after time
My feelings are so hurt
It will take all very still make our love work
I’ll give your love
You just me a chance
Once in your live
I see them this is real
Will it be pain and sorrow i feel
If this is love you can see it through my eyes
Remember the days
When we would just hold hands
Holding and kissing all thought feeling
Come through the times when i knew you cared

[Bridge]
Boy, why don’t you just understand
Why i’ve got to be your girl
Why don’t you let yourself go
Don’t you know

[Fade]
Time after time, what we’re together
I tell you i love you now and forever
You’re doing me wrong
There’s nothing i can do
