Beautiful Montclair, Colorado

Incorporated as its own town in 1888, Montclair was developed as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of downtown Denver (as well as its hundreds of saloons and brothels). The building of saloons, as well as the sale of alcohol in Montclair was strictly prohibited. The original boundaries of Montclair were Holly St (to the West), Colfax Avenue (to the North), Quebec St (to the East) and 6th Avenue (to the South).

If you live in the neighborhood, join the new Quebec District Facebook page for updates!

Aurora Fox presents She Kills Monsters

Live theatre at its geeky best!

Calling all gaming geeks, fans of 90’s pop culture, and curious observers – SHE KILLS MONSTERS is for you!  It’s a high octane, comedic romp into the world of D&D - dragons, monsters and all.

It all starts with a girl. Her name is Agnes. She’s fairy unremarkable. Then she stumbles across her dead sister’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook and everything changes! 

Agnes and her new friends embark on an action-packed journey through the dangerous and fascinating D&D world created by her (now deceased) wicked cool sister, Tilly. There they (mostly) successfully battle Bugbears, the Beholder, and Tiamat (a 5-headed dragon) and more. Through the course of her adventure, Agnes becomes significantly less unremarkable.  In fact, we discover she’s pretty bad-ass. There’s hope for all of us!

Agnes makes her first appearance Friday, April 24th.  You need to check this girl out.  Come be warriors with us!

The Aurora Fox presents Qui Nguyen’s She Kills Monsters, a send-up to Dungeons and
Dragons (directed by Geoffrey Kent). The show runs April 24 through May 16. Friday and Saturday

Rodney Atkins coming to The Fillmore Auditorium

RODNEY ATKINS
w/ special guests TBA
Fillmore Auditorium
April 23
Showtime 7:30 pm / Doors 6:30 pm




Rodney Atkins is as authentic as they come. Whether he’s taking in a baseball game with son Elijah or entertaining thousands of fans with one of his many mega-hits, Atkins expresses a refreshing simplicity and sincerity that reflects the values he holds so dear: Putting family first, making the most of what you have, and staying true to yourself in a rapidly-changing world.

With his new single “Doin’ It Right,” which impacted radio stations nationwide in October, Rodney Atkins celebrates life’s unexpected turns and uncertainties as the true stepping stones of success. The song is the first release from Atkins’ fifth studio album on Curb Records, due in stores early next year. His most recent album, Take A Back Road, yielded Atkins’ sixth career No. 1 hit and fastest-rising single to date with the title track. “Take A Back Road,” written by Luke Laird and Rhett Akins, was also named Song of the Year at the 2012 BMI Awards and marked Rodney’s third Song of the Year win.   “Watching You” and “If You’re Going Through Hell” also earned the title.

When he’s not in the studio working on new music, Rodney is working hard out on the road, connecting with loyal fans in cities across the country. He joined multi-platinum artist Darius Rucker for the True Believers Tour this past summer and hosted the Third Annual “Music City Gives Back” concert in downtown Nashville on June 4, 2013, raising funds for Oklahoma tornado relief following the devastating storms that affected Moore, Shawnee and other Oklahoma communities. Atkins was joined by friends and fellow performers Jana Kramer, Justin Moore and Josh Thompson for the event.

In addition to the benefit concert, Rodney also hosted the inaugural “Rodney Atkins’ America’s Heroes Celebration” on Jekyll Island, GA the weekend of August 16 - 18. The military appreciation weekend included a beach party, festival games, family activities and live music capped off with Rodney’s show on Sunday night, dedicated to active duty and veterans of all military branches. Atkins is an avid supporter of America’s troops, having also completed his first-ever USO Tour through some of the most remote bases in Kuwait and Afghanistan in early 2012.
