Testing 1-2-3 in Pinedale

Shotgun Party
Summer is festival time in Wyoming. The Pinedale Fine Arts Council sponsors the SoundCheck festival this weekend. Three bands, all with Austin connections, are featured.
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council will be presenting the fourth annual SoundCheck mini-music fest on June 25, 2011 in the American Legion Park (5 p.m., free) in Pinedale. SoundCheck was first conceived four years ago following PFAC's purchase of a new sound system via grant monies from the Wyoming Cultural Trust. The inaugural event was a hit so it became an annual festival with attendance growing each year. This is sure to be the music event of the summer so mark the date on the calendar, dust off your cooler and camp chairs and come listen to some great music!
Notice that this event has its roots in seed money from the Wyoming Cultural Trust, with funding provided by the Wyoming State Legislature. Every arts event in Wyoming is like a pie in the face to the regressive elements which would shut down free expression and artistic entrepreneurship and creative placemaking and just plain fun. Support these events, and let your legislators know that you support their efforts at making Wyoming a better and more progressive place.
